The College of the Redwoods softball team closed out the season with a doubleheader sweep of Butte at McKinleyville High School on Saturday, and remain in the hunt for third place in the Golden Valley Conference.

The Corsairs, who won 4-3 in eight innings and 5-2, close out at 9-11 in conference play, while Butte is currently 9-9 with a doubleheader at home to Shasta remaining on Tuesday.

If Shasta sweeps, then CR and Butte will both be 9-11, but the Corsairs will claim third outright in the final conference standings courtesy of the head-to-head tiebreaker, having won three of four against Butte.

Game one on Saturday was a ninth one-run affair for the Corsairs in 20 GVC games this season.

The CR women rallied twice late, taking a 2-1 lead with two runs in the bottom of the sixth, and then tying things up at 3-3 with a run in the seventh.
