Goleta Valley South 10U All Stars Force Deciding Game for District 63 Title

Goleta Valley South Little League's 10-under All Stars erupted for 10 runs in the fourth inning to break a 1-1 tie and defeated previously unbeaten Ventura-Foothill, 11-1, on Monday to force a second championship game of the District 63 Tournament.

The teams will meet Wednesday at Ojai Little League for the title and a berth in the Section 1 Tournament.

In the big fourth inning, Jacob Copley had a bases-loaded double and the eventual walk-off hit to drive in the 10th run of the inning, giving Goleta Valley South the win via the 10-run mercy rule.

Christian Haupt, Levi Monson, Landon Johnson and Zane Webb all had RBI hits in the inning. David Burkholder scored the go-ahead run on Copley’s second clutch hit. 

Haupt pitched all four innings, giving up one run on two hits while striking out four.

Grant Hoover, Cruz Lorca, and  Monson each made big plays on defense to hold Foothill to one run.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
