Extended highlights of Rock Canyon's 7-6 win over Chatfield
DENVER – Rock Canyon advanced to the final day of the 5A state tournament after Matt Givin hit a sac fly walk-off to right field that gave the Jaguars a 7-6 win over Chatfield.
Chatfield was trailing most of the game, but the Chargers came back and scored a combined six runs in the fifth and sixth inning to take a 6-5 lead over Rock Canyon heading into the bottom of the fifth.
That lead didn’t last long.
In the Jaguars next at bat, Givin came up big once again and provided the game tying run on another sac fly to right.
Rock Canyon will play Mountain Vista, who beat Grandview 5-4, tomorrow at 1 p.m. and the winner will advance to play Chatfield in the state championship game.
The Golden Eagles and Jaguars split on the season and Vista was victorious most recently, giving Rock Canyon their only loss of the postseason.
