In the Majors state softball tournament, San Pedro Valley was eliminated by host team Queen Creek 11-1.

Sunnyside has reached the elimination-bracket final Tuesday at 6:30 p.m.

It will play either Queen Creek or the winner between Phoenix Arcadia and Flagstaff Continental. Arcadia and Continental had their game postponed Saturday night because of rain with Arcadia leading 12-0 in the top of the fourth. Queen Creek plays the winner of that game in an elimination-bracket game Monday at 6:30 p.m.

According to District 12 and Sunnyside Little League officials, an “if” game is not scheduled for the championship.

Cave Creek Cactus Foothills emerged to the championship from the winner’s bracket. If Sunnyside wins the elimination-bracket final Tuesday, Cactus Foothills and Sunnyside would play for the winner-take-all championship on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m.
