Uppercut, uppercut, body blow, head butt, head butt, head butt, head butt!!! I’m so jacked up for Norco (30-2) vs. Santiago (23-9) of Corona in the CIF-SS Division 1 title game I just head butted everybody on press row.
It is on like Donkey Kong.
Norco vs. Santiago is as close as you come to Yankees vs. Red Sox (check out EPJ’s story in the Riversde Press Enterprise) in high school softball.
These have been two of the most dominant programs in the nation for a long time.
Santiago is trying to win its second consecutive Division 1 championship and fifth overall. Norco, ranked No. 1 in the state by Cal-Hi Sports and No. 1 in the nation by ESPN, is trying to win its fourth championship.
Both teams are loaded with college-bound players. Both teams have two of the premier coaches in high school sports with Norco’s Rick Robinson and Santiago’s John Perez, aka Darth Vader, Lord Vader and the Sith Lord.
This is going to be a slobberknocker of epic proportions.
We’re running a bit behind. First pitch is at 6:45 p.m. at Deanna Manning Stadium at Colonel Bill Barber Marine Corps Memorial Park. Stay tuned for all the updates.
