Tonight’s clash between Millikan and Compton at the Rams’ DeHaven Stadium pits two teams desperate for a win against each other.
Millikan (2-5, 1-2) isn’t having the season they envisioned with a talented roster.
Compton (3-3, 0-2) was hoping to reverse last year’s story of a strong start followed by a tough Moore League, but are instead winless in league so far.
With only three playoff spots guaranteed coming out of the Moore League, both teams basically need a win to stay alive in the playoff hunt. If the Rams win, they’d still likely need to defeat Cabrillo and Wilson to claim third. Compton needs to win tonight and then win at least two of their three games against Poly, Lakewood, and Cabrillo, if not all three.
