The Falcons are riding a Central California Athletic Alliance co-championship and a 20-7 record, including three wins in a row in the Division VII playoffs, into the title game Monday, May 28.
That game will be at a location to be announced against Valley Christian of Roseville.
Millennium coach Drew Reyes said that a four-run first inning Tuesday included a two-RBI double from Gavin Compton, which set the tone for the rest of the game. Reyes said that the Knights (21-10 overall, 6-4 CCAA) hit the ball well, but the Falcons’ outfield was up to the challenge, playing solid defense and keeping Brookside’s offense in check.
Austin Larson pitched seven innings for Millennium, giving up six hits and two earned runs while striking out three. He was also Millennium’s leading batter, with two doubles and two RBIs. Kyle Murawski and Compton also had two hits each, as the Falcons had 11 hits in all.
The Lions from Valley Christian Academy, the defending Division VII champions, await the Falcons. Valley Christian beat Elliot Christian of Lodi, the CCAA co-champion along with Millennium, in two games in their semifinal series this week.
The section championship on Monday, May 28, is a rematch of Valley Christian’s 3-1 win over Millennium in last year’s title game.
Valley Christian is 21-6 and went 10-0 in the Sacramento Metropolitan Athletic League this season.
