Top-seeded Crespi is going for its second consecutive section title. The Celts will have USC-bound right-hander Trevor Plouffe on the mound and he's experienced in big games, throwing a three-hit shutout in last season's final. But the Knights can't be overlooked. They're accustomed to playing in a big park and have one of the division's hottest players in Sean Kalmen.
* Division II -- Simi Valley (26-7) vs. Placentia El Dorado (22-9), 4:30 p.m.
The regular season was not kind to these finalists. Both took their lumps in league play and finished third. El Dorado has two consecutive extra-inning victories; Simi Valley needed a grand slam from Dylan Gaughen in the bottom of the sixth Tuesday to beat Santiago, 8-7, and advance to its first final since 1993.
