In the second game of the day, Monique Hernandez (5-1) dominated Grossmont right from the start as the Chargers used an eight run bottom of the first to blow the game wide open before the Griffins even knew what hit them.
Hits were a little harder to come by in the first game of the day as Cypress pulled out the 3-2 win over Citrus College, despite being out-hit 8 to 3 in the game. Melissa Mankey had two of the three hits, and a run scored for the Chargers.
Chelsea Jewett's two-run triple in the bottom of the fifth proved to be the key to victory for Cypress. That made it a 3-1 game heading into the ninth where Cypress was able to hold off an Owls rally that made it a one run game.
Cypress will return to Orange Empire Conference action on Friday March 16 when NOCCCD rival Fullerton College comes to town.
