Carpinteria High’s Thursday night home football against Hueneme has been canceled because of a positive COVID-19 test within the program, athletic director Pat Cooney announced on Tuesday.
The Warriors (0-1) also had their March 19 season opener against Fillmore canceled by the coronavirus. Those two games were the only home contests on their schedule.
Carpinteria, which lost its season opener at Nordhoff last week, has just one more game remaining on its abbreviated spring schedule: at Santa Paula on April 9.
WILLIAM JESSUP 5-1, WESTMONT 4-2
Westmont College strung together three of its four hits in the bottom of the sixth inning to rally for a 2-1 victory and gain a split of a baseball double-header against William Jessup on Tuesday at Russ Carr Field.
Jameson Kruger got the complete-game pitching win in the seven-inning contest, allowing just three hits while striking out seven to improve his record to 3-3.
He settled down after a bases-loaded walk gave William Jessup the lead in the first inning.
“It’s hard to express the excitement I have for Jamie today,” coach Robert Ruiz said. “He’s been through some adversity this year and then today comes out with a 33-pitch first inning, and then still throws a complete game.
“For Jamie to not let one at bat or one inning define him was huge. He’s starting to become the guy we know he can be and that’s going to be huge for us down the stretch.”
The Warriors (21-14, 14-8 Golden State Athletic Conference) rallied with one out in the sixth. Robbie Haw singled up the middle and scored on a triple to left-centerfield by John Jensen. One out later, Simon Reid rapped another single to center to score Jensen with the go-ahead run.
Catcher Renn Duncan helped preserve the victory in the seventh by throwing out the trail runner at second base when William Jessup attempted a double-steal.
“That may have been the game saving play,” Ruiz said.
William Jessup (17-15, 8-10) hit three home runs to win the first game 5-4. Alex Stufft led Westmont with an RBI double, a single, and a sacrifice fly. Haw went 2-for-3 and scored twice.
