Sarah Maloney pitched seven strong innings and struck out 12 batters to lead the Cypress Bay softball team to a 1-0 victory over Cooper City in the District 12-8A championship game Monday night.

Olivia Gott went 1 for 3 with the winning RBI. Maloney allowed three hits.

“We knew it would be a hard game,” coach Lonny Shapiro said.

Cypress Bay has played Cooper City twice this season. The Lightning won the first game, 2-1, and lost the second, 5-4.

The Lightning (19-7) now looks forward to the regional quarterfinals.

“We‘re trying to take one game at a time, yet we are confident with ourselves and any team we play,” Shapiro said.

McArthur guard Majestic Tejada made an oral commitment to Northern Arizona after weighing interest from College of Charleston (S.C.), Gardner Webb and Radford, among others.

The highly athletic guard averaged nine points, four assists and three rebounds to help lead the Mustangs (22-6) to its first regional final appearance this past season.

“Northern Arizona is an up and coming program,’’ said McArthur coach Warren Gale.

“They liked Majestic’s leadership and the things he has brought to the table for us. The way he controls the team. They think he can step in and be a four-year player for them.”
