No. 19 Mississippi Gulf Coast pounded Itawamba 7-2 Saturday in Ridgeland to cruise into the MACJC championship game.
"As playoff games go, you couldn't ask for more," Gulf Coast coach Chris Handy said. Nobody had to play a ton, and we got to play our subs. We should be pretty rested for tomorrow."
The Bulldogs (13-2) play archrival Pearl River (10-6-2) at 1 p.m. at Freedom Park. The Wildcats defeated East Central 3-0 in the other semifinal.
C.J. Smith (Fr, Brampton, Ontario/David Suzuki Secondary School) opened the scoring in the third minute. Counselman and Hall scored in the seventh minute to cap an explosive start.
Oscar Loya Loya (Fr, Horn Lake/Horn Lake) scored in the 22nd minute for a 4-0 lead.
