BEAUMONT, Texas — Navarro is one win away from the NJCAA World Series after holding off Panola, 5-2 at Lamar University's Vincent-Beck Stadium

The Bulldogs extended their lead to five when Mason Holt scored on a dropped third strike. Panola responded immediately when Chris Collett's shot to right field drove in Mateo Beltran and Joseph Steven, but that was as close as the Ponies could get.

Panola will be back in action again tomorrow at 1, with a win setting up a rematch with Navarro.
