(ST. GEORGE, Utah — May 16, 2009) Fifth-seed Florida CC-Jacksonville plated four seventh-inning runs to rally and defeat #15-seed Seward County CC, 5-4, in a consolation bracket elimination game at the 2009 NJCAA National Championship tournanment Friday afternoon at the Canyons Complex. The Stars (47-19) will advance to play #4-seed Blinn College in another consolation elimination game Friday evening at 6 p.m. (MDT). Seward County is eliminated and finished its season with a 40-16 record.

Seward County jumped out to a 4-0 lead after three innings, scoring a single run in the second inning before erupting for three more tallies in the third, highlighted by a two-run single by Shelby Casey. FCCJ got on the board with an unearned run in the fourth, but waited to get the bats going until its final at-bat, when the Stars pounded out four hits, including a two-run single from Jamie Booker, and tallied two more runs on a ill-timed error, to take a 5-4 lead. Seward committed four errors in the seventh. FCCJ reliever Crystal Chesser, who fanned six in 4.1 innings of relief, worked a perfect bottom half of the seventh to close the game.
