Oblivious to the rain dribbling upon his close-cropped chestnut hair, a stoic Jim Landress swung a baseball bat slowly and evenly, as if the weight of the game was balancing on his sturdy shoulders. The score was 3-2, the American Legion game was in its final inning, and his Central Valley team was down to its final strike. The Valley South pitcher coiled and unleashed a low fastball, a pitch Landress could handle. Sean Lavery swung and missed.

The Golden Cougars (2-4 overall, 2-1 in league play) were led by quarterback John Toven, who hit his first four passes for 113 yards to set up a pair of first-half scores.
