PERKINSTON — The 2019 MACJC Softball Tournament has been moved to the Magee Sportsplex on Monday, and it will be abbreviated because of the heavy rains that forced the total or near-total postponement of four days of play.
No. 12 Mississippi Gulf Coast will play No. 10 Itawamba at 2:30 p.m. in a winners' bracket game. The winner will advance to play in the MACJC Championship game at 7:30.
The tournament has been modified so the winner of the winners' bracket will be the state champion, and third place will be determined by the winner of the losers' bracket.
Games will be played on two fields at the sportsplex.
