LONGVIEW -- The Everett Community College Trojans may consider changing their name to Night Owls.
EvCC advanced to the Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges baseball championship game early Monday morning, defeating Bellevue College 10-5 in a game that ended at 2:04 a.m.
Rain on Sunday delayed tournament play at Story Field. Everett's game with Bellevue, which was scheduled to be played earlier in the evening, was pushed back to 11:05 p.m., but did not start until 11:26 p.m.
The Trojans, who are undefeated in four tournament games, were scheduled to play Pierce College on Monday for the tournament title. If Pierce won, it would force a second game to determine the tournament champion.
But Monday's game was postponed because of rain. The weather forecast for the next few days in Longview is not favorable, so the title game was rescheduled for 5:05 p.m. on Friday, with the second game to follow if necessary.
In the Trojans' victory over Bellevue, EvCC left fielder Paul Sitkowski was 5-for-5, including a solo home run, and the Everett leadoff batter scored three runs.
EvCC first baseman Daniel Orr was 4-for-5 and had three RBI, giving him 50 for the season. Jordan Kynaston pitched five innings for the Trojans, allowing two runs on five hits while striking out five, to pick up the victory.
Everett, which had 16 hits in the game, took a 4-1 lead after the first inning en route to victory over Bellevue as the Trojans improved their season record to 37-9.
