Softball sweeps Grovetown, falls to Statesboro

With Irma playing heck with their schedule, this week the SCHS Lady Gamecock softball team of Jim Randall Doyle finished last week with a record of 13-4 as they swept AAAAAA Grovetown on Sept. 6 before falling to AAAAA Statesboro 3-2 at Mill Creek on Sept. 7.

The team’s final three scheduled regular season home games were cancelled or postponed on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

Monday’s cancellation with AAA Southeast Bulloch is scheduled to be made up on Wednesday, Sept. 20, at 5 p.m. Seniors will be honored in a pregame ceremony.

Whatever becomes of the other games from earlier in the week one thing is for sure and that is SCHS traveling to Harlem on Sept. 19 to decide the regular season Region 4AA championship. 

Beyond that, the final scheduled regular season game is in Millen on Sept. 25. Region playoffs will begin on Sept. 27 when SCHS will host someone in a doubleheader with a third game, if necessary, the following day. The doubleheader is scheduled to begin at 4 p.m.

As for the games this week, the Cross Creek game scheduled for Wednesday was cancelled as Richmond County was still out of school. In a communiqué on Friday, Doyle was informed that Cross Creek had nowhere on the schedule in which to make up the game.

The Glenn Hills region game which was on Tuesday has to be played unless the Lady Spartans forfeit. Without Irma that was already a distinct possibility. 

Facing a quality pitcher in Statesboro on Sept. 7, every player in the lineup, save losing pitcher Sarah Beasley (6-3, 0.83), struck out at least once.

Beasley spaced eight hits, walking just one, while allowing only two earned runs, but it was enough for SHS. 

SCHS managed a mere five hits, but did tie the game at 2-2 in the fourth on a Beasley sac bunt that turned into a two-run error. The Lady Devils came right back in the home half of the inning with an unearned run to take the lead.

No one scored again. The Lady Gamecocks had only two base runners over the final three frames.

In amazingly easy fashion, the Lady Gamecocks swept AAAAAA Grovetown in Sylvania on Sept. 6 by margins of 11-0 and 13-1 in run-shortened contests.

SCHS scored in every inning of each contest. While the Lady Warrior pitchers were having trouble getting outs, the home team’s trio of pitchers were nothing short of spectacular. 

Were it not for a two-out outfield error in the second game, the visitors would never have scored.

Game one saw Kara Canetto (5-1, 1.43) pitch a five-inning one-hitter, striking out 11 while walking one. Game two saw Sarah Beasley (6-2, 0.64) get the win with two innings of one-hit ball and Melanie Mitchell (2-0, 0.00) also hurled a pair.

The SCHS bats were out all day long. There were three runs in the first inning of the first game and two runs in the final inning of game two. There were 14 hits in game one and 11 in game two. 

That first win saw Camille Seckinger and Maggie Hafer with three hits each and Payton Ward along with Sarah Beasley two each. Canetto and Hafer had three RBI each.

Hafer had a huge second game with six more RB1, giving her nine for the day, on three hits.
