Softball maintains share of region lead
Breaking open a game that was scoreless through five innings with 15 runs in the final two frames, the SCHS Lady Gamecocks ended 10 consecutive scoreless innings over two games as they finally routed home-standing Swainsboro 15-2 in a 3AA contest Tuesday.
With the win, SCHS improved to 7-0 in region play, 11-7 overall.
Over the next week beginning this Oct. 1 evening, the team will play five, nearly half of the games of its region schedule.
In a regularly scheduled contest this Oct. 1 afternoon on Senior Night, the Red and White will face fourth-place East Laurens. With a victory against the 7-10 (3-5) Lady Falcons, the Lady Gamecocks, who clinched a state playoff with the Swainsboro win, can clinch no worse than third in the region.
In a makeup game, Dublin will be here on Monday. There will be a doubleheader with the region’s other unbeaten, Harlem, on the road on Tuesday, one of them a makeup. Metter will be here on Thursday, Oct. 8, for the regular season finale. That final game could decide second place.
State playoffs begin on Oct. 14 with a doubleheader. Region 3AA is paired with Region 2AA for the first round.
At last week’s end, the 3AA standings showed SCHS and Harlem with 6-0 records.
Metter was a close third at 6-2 with games remaining with both SCHS and Harlem. East Laurens was 3-5, while Dublin was 1-5 and both Swainsboro and Jefferson County were 1-6.
Obviously, the standings are beginning to show who the top four teams are and most definitely who the top three appear to be.
Following a 10-0 loss to Region 2AA leader Vidalia (24-3 on the season) that saw the last 15 Lady Gamecocks retired consecutively in the five inning contest, SCHS came out against 2-19 Swainsboro and continued their offensive problems. Stranding six in scoring position through five the hour was getting late.
But the sixth saw Victoria Winters triple; GeeGee Beasley double; Maggie Hafer reach on an error; Madison Lewis single; Kara Canetto reach on a bunt; and Rebekah Woods double.
Before the inning was done, SCHS had plated six. Swainsboro broke their ice too, scoring two in their half of the sixth.
The Red and White plated nine in the seventh to finish the rout. The highlight of the seventh was a grand slam homer by Charlie Pitts.
On the day, the Lady Gamecocks banged out 16 hits with 11 different players having at least one. Canetto, Hafer, and Winters had two each and Beasley finished with three. Canetto picked up the win with 5.1 innings and seven Ks.
In Louisville on Sept. 23, the Lady Gamecocks improved to 6-0 in region with a 12-1 win over Jefferson County.
SCHS got two in the first and three in the second to take a quick lead. Only did a six-spot in the sixth end the game however.
Lewis had two hits and three RBI, while Rebekah Woods had two hits and one RBI. Payton Ward had a hit and two RBI.
Both Ward and Canetto hurled with Canetto picking up the win with 4.2 innings of hitless ball, striking out eight and walking but two. The Red and White also stole 13 bases highlighted by the four of Canetto and the three by Woods.
