ROCKLIN — If killing two birds with one stone were a sport, College Glen’s Sonny Lenford played a sport within a sport in the opener of the Little League Section 4 Junior All-Star Tournament on Saturday night.

“I just said I need to hit to make contact and hope it goes somewhere,” said Lenford, who drove in Angel Del Valle and Anthony Shaldone to secure a 13-2 victory over Woodcreek at Twin Oaks Park.

Lenford’s hit drove in two of College Glen’s seven runs in the sixth inning. Jared Alameida also had an RBI double in the inning.

Lenford also dominated as College Glen’s pitcher, shutting down Woodcreek’s hard-hitting attack.

Woodcreek’s Jack Rotteveel pounded a home run to tie the score in the first inning, but College Glen secured the lead in the third when Nick Iwasa batted in Larry Barber.

Casey Fischbach scored Woodcreek’s other run on a hit by Jason Headington in the fourth.

Woodcreek falls into the losers’ bracket and will play Rio Linda at 7:30 p.m. Sunday.

“We’re going to hit the ball, definitely,” Rotteveel said.

College Glen advances to play Tahoe Tallac at 5 p.m. Sunday.
