Cathedral Catholic won its third San Diego Section Division III title in four years, defeating El Capitan 3-2 in the June 4 title game at San Diego State’s Tony Gwynn Stadium.

The Dons trailed 2-1 in the top of the fifth when Nico Garbella’s two-run double gave them a lead they wouldn’t relinquish.

Daniel Camarena tossed a complete-game two-hitter. He allowed two runs (one earned) and struck out six while allowing one walk.

Garbella had two of the Dons’ six hits. Stephen Haviar added one hit and one RBI.

Matt Boermeester had two hits and drove in the game’s only run for Cathedral Catholic.

The Dons advanced to the finals after defeating Monte Vista 1-0 in a thrilling eight-inning June 2 semifinal.

Gonsalves, who was credited with the victory, pitched one scoreless inning in relief of starter Michael Martin, who struck out six batters and allowed one walk in seven innings of six-hit ball.

The Dons improved their overall record for the season to 30-4.
