Softball goes to 4-0 in 3AA
With first place in Region 3AA at stake, the SCHS Lady Gamecocks, who improved to 4-0 in region play Tuesday night, will host the three-time defending Region champion Harlem Lady Bulldogs this Sept. 10 afternoon at 5:00.
The winner will have the uncontested lead atop the region standings.
At last week’s end, the Region 3AA standings saw Harlem at 4-0; SCHS at 3-0; Metter at 2-1; East Laurens at 1-1; Swainsboro at 1-3; Dublin at 0-2; and Jefferson County at 0-4.
Next Tuesday, Sept. 15, the Lady Gamecocks will travel to Metter in another crucial battle that also represents the final game of the first region round robin.
Effingham County will be here on Sept. 16 before the Red and White travel to Burke County on the 17th.
SCHS improved to 4-0 in 3AA, and 7-4 overall with a resounding 16-3 victory over home-standing East Laurens in a lightning-delayed contest Tuesday.
The Lady Gamecocks turned what had been a somewhat suspenseful game into a five-inning run-ruled one with a nine spot in the fifth.
Everyone in the SCHS lineup except one had hits with Kara Canetto, Payton Ward, Rebekah Woods, and GeeGee Beasley having two each.
Madison Lewis and Pamela Dixon scored three runs each.
Pitcher Canetto went the distance on the mound, allowing a single safety to go with five walks.
The outfield defense of the Red and White made some major contributions as well with left fielder Dixon making a catch and doubling a runner off third and right fielder Whitney Gay making a catch and throwing a runner out at home.
A stunningly close region game was played at SCHS on Sept. 3 when the Lady Gamecocks outlasted then 2-8 Swainsboro 7-4 in another 3AA contest.
SHS was blasted by East Laurens 16-0 on Aug. 25 for a reference.
After spotting the Lady Tigers a run in the top of the first frame, SCHS got three in their half on Sept. 3. All scored when Woods’ routine RBI single to score Kara Canetto ending up allowing Ward and Woods herself to score when the leftfielder allowed the ball to roll through her legs to the fence.
The third inning saw Maggie Hafer double in a run and then later score herself on a Lewis grounder to up the count to 5-1.
Swainsboro crept back into the game with an unearned pair in the top of the fifth on an ill-advised two-out throw, but Hafer got one of the runs back with a homer over the left field fence.
Again Swainsboro closed the gap with another unearned run in the sixth, but Woods drove home another to make the final count 7-4.
Woods, who earned the win in relief of Canetto in the fourth, struck out the final three batters.
Hafer had three hits and Allie Bazemore two.
