Encino Falls in Game 1 of Southern California Championship Series

The 12-and-under Encino All-Stars (12-2) lost 12-1 to Ocean View (11-1) in a mercy Saturday afternoon in West Covina.

Ocean View jumped ahead 2-0 in the top of the first, added seven in the second and three more in the third. The 12-0 margin was too much to overcome for Encino, which had four come-from-behind victories in its previous six games.

Gordon Magruder belted one RBI, Mike Cohen had one hit and scored one run and Jamie Robertson added a hit.

Encino now faces a similar scenario to the sub-divisional. Encino will need to defeat Ocean View two days in a row to win the Southern California Championship Series. It won’t be easy considering Ocean View is the defending Southern California champion, but it’s certainly attainable. Just two years ago, Park View lost in a mercy in game one of the championship series, just like Encino, and eventually won the World Series.
