Carson beats Chatsworth to win third City Section Division I softball title in four years

Sophomore Aniesa Maulupe of Carson put on a power display at UCLA's Easton Stadium on Saturday afternoon, hitting two home runs to help the Colts defeat Chatsworth, 8-4, in the City Section Division I championship softball game.

It was Carson's third title in the last four years.

Maulupe, a Long Beach State commit, hit both home runs over the right-field fence.

Chatsworth had a 3-1 lead when Carson scored four runs in the fifth inning. Maulupe's three-run home run in the sixth broke open the game.

Jessica Robledo picked up the win in relief.

Jaylen Watson had a home run for Chatsworth, which knocked off top-seeded El Camino Real in 12 innings earlier in the week.

In Division II, Clarissa Estevane struck out 12 in Sylmar's 1-0 win over Westchester. Gabriela Monge drove in the game's only run in the fourth. In Division III, Harbor Teacher College defeated Northridge Academy, 6-0. Carmen Angulo threw the shutout.

Southern Section finals

In the Southern Section Division 1 final, Garden Grove Pacifica defeated Riverside King, 1-0, in 12 innings. Brooke Marquez hit an RBI double in the 12th. North Carolina-bound Kaylee Carlson threw her fifth consecutive shutout of the playoffs.

Friday night's Southern Section Division 2 championship game produced another memorable pitching duel, with Mission Viejo and Taylor McQuillin prevailing in nine innings over Chino and Miranda Viramontes, 1-0. McQuillin, a junior committed to Arizona, struck out 17 and allowed one hit. Viramontes, a Utah signee, struck out 15 and had a no-hitter until Kayleen Shafer's game-winning single with one out in the ninth. Mission Viejo finishes 26-1.

In Division 4 on Saturday, Santa Monica defeated Ventura, 3-1.
