 Kirkland, WA (KOLD) - The Sunnyside Junior League softball team advanced to bracket play after defeating Mexico 3-2 in a win or go home final game.

Sunnyside grabbed a 3-0 lead in the second inning before Mexico came back in the top of the 7th, cutting the lead to 1 off a two run homer by Lizbeth Lugo. In the end, Yannira Acuna went the distance, pitching the complete game while notching 3 strikeouts. 

Both Acuna and Alexandra Tapia finished with 1 RBI a piece while Arlett Arreola and Angela Sallas finished with 2 hits a piece. 

Sunnyside moves on to see another day. The team will learn its opponent following Wednesday night's action.
