The Hillmen's junior varsity team won 8-5 in come-from-behind fashion, overcoming a 5-1 deficit against visiting Colfax.

Placer used a two-run fifth and five-run sixth to record the victory.

Luis Burrola relieved Radd Thomas in the third and held Colfax to one hit the rest of the way, thanks to his defense.

Placer’s Nick Sassarini and Jordan Wood played well in the field, Hillmen coach Eddie Vanderdoes said.

Placer’s Brigg Tucker led the offense with a 3-for-4 day.
