SCHS softball gets well, wins three straight
After a slow start their opening week, the SCHS Lady Gamecock softball team of Billy Pollock has won three straight to even their record at 3-3 heading into this Aug. 27 afternoon’s Region 3AA opener with Jefferson County at the local field starting at 5:00.
Next week the Red and White will travel to 3AA opponent Dublin on Tuesday, then host AAAAA South Effingham and region foe Swainsboro on Wednesday, Sept. 2, and Thursday, Sept. 3, respectively.
Their home opener on Tuesday with AAAA Burke County saw the Lady Gamecocks sleep walk through a horribly lackadaisical five and a half innings before finally coming to life in the home half of the sixth.
By the time the wake up occurred, SCHS trailed 6-2 and appeared done.
After a four-run sixth to knot the game, sophomore pitcher Kara Canetto got a strikeout with the bases loaded and two outs to send her team into the home half of the seventh knotted at six.
Senior shortstop Rebekah Woods led off the seventh with a walk, stole second, and scored on senior Victoria Winters walk-off single.
In the pivotal sixth, Woods led off with a double that was followed by Winters’ pop fly double that sent Woods to third.
Sophomore GeeGee Beasley singled in Woods before sophomore third baseman Maggie Hafer doubled in Winters and Beasley.
Hafer’s pinch runner Logan Bargeron later scored on Canetto’s grounder. Still the team later had the bases loaded at one point with no one out and managed to plate only one.
On the day with a large crowd watching, Winters had three hits and three RBI, while Hafer had two doubles and a pair of RBI.
With six hits in the final two innings, the Lady Gamecocks finished with nine hits.
After opening Saturday with a lopsided victory, SCHS took on host Burke County in their second game and came away with a tough 3-1 victory.
Canetto picked up her second win of the day with a three-hit complete game that saw her strike out nine, allowing a single unearned run.
Meanwhile, the Red and White scored a single run in three of their six at bats. A quintet of five players had a single hit with Hafer, Beasley, and Woods driving in runs. Woods’ RBI came on her ninth career homer which gave her the career lead in that category.
The team ended its season-opening three-game losing streak with a bang in their first game of the Burke County Diamond Day Saturday with a three-inning 15-0 rout of 4-1 Class A Glascock County.
Canetto had her best game to date picking up her first win of the season, though she improved upon it in the following contest, by throwing a three-inning no-hitter. Canetto struck out five, while walking but three. Three of the final four outs were Ks.
Woods recorded a 2-for-3 game that included three runs scored and a pair of RBI. Hafer and Pamela Dixon also had two hits each with Hafer having three RBI and Dixon one.
