Al’mutasim finished the shutout win and earned the Patriots a spot in Thursday’s district final.

Jefferson 2, Robinson 1

The Dragons squeaked out a 2-1 victory over the Knights on Tuesday night in a game packed with action. 

Jefferson got on the board first in the 2nd inning when Jack Rodriguez singled and moved to third on a Jake Coleman double. Nick Perez hit a deep flyball to center and Rodriguez tagged up and scored to give the Dragons a 1-0 lead. 

Robinson's Andrew McMillan executed a perfect double steal from third to tie the game at one in the top of the 3rd, and the score stayed that way until the bottom of the 4th when Perez struck again. 

After Coleman singled and moved to second, Perez lined one to left field with two away and Coleman came around to score to give Jefferson the 2-1 advantage. 

Michael Dominguez got the start for the Dragons and was on the money, striking out eight and only giving up four hits until he ran into trouble in the 6th. 

Jefferson's sophomore righthander didn't walk a batter through the first five innings, but walked the bases loaded in the 6th and had to give way to junior Robby Martin with one away. 

Martin pumped fastball after fastball past the next two Knights batters and the Dragons escaped with the lead they would not relinquish.

Carson Weekley was 3-for-4 and Stetson had a home run to center to get Berkeley Prep ahead early. A two-run double from Aaron Muench and a Charlie Vari RBI groundout even things for the Terrapins in the top of the sixth, but Khalib Bayona was able to lock down the seventh inning and make Stetson’s sac fly the winner.
