Lady Gamecocks whip Jefferson County, sew up post-season spot

With three regular season 4AA games to go, the SCHS Lady Gamecocks of Jim Randall Doyle downed home-standing Jefferson County 15-0 Tuesday to improve to 10-2 on the season but, more importantly, 4-0 in region play. 

The Jeffco win assures the Red and White of a spot in the region playoffs, which begin on Sept. 27, and assures them of a spot in the Class AA state playoffs which begin on Oct. 13.

Next week SCHS will travel to Laney on Sept. 5 before returning home on Sept. 6 for a doubleheader against AAAAAA Grovetown. The second game will be a makeup of an Aug. 8 rain out.

On the seventh, the Lady Gamecocks will travel to Statesboro to face the Lady Devils.

In running their region record to 4-0, SCHS has now outscored those region opponents 65-0 in the games, each of which has been finished in three innings. 

Tuesday saw the team score 12 first inning runs on six hits, five walks, and three batters who reached via error. Kara Canetto and GeeGee Beasley had two hits each with Canetto and Maggie Hafer having three RBI each. 

GeeGee Beasley and her sister Sarah Beasley had two RBI each. For the Lady Gamecocks, there were eight total hits, five walks, and six reached on errors.

Over the three innings, Sarah Beasley (4-2, 0.712) gave up two hits, walked one, and struck out four.

Rain wreaked havoc on the SCHS appearance in Statesboro’s Battle in the Boro Tournament last weekend. Both Friday games were called because of weather. One with Camden County was 4-4 heading to the fifth when it was stopped and never resumed. The other, with Statesboro, was canceled.

On Saturday, the Lady Gamecocks opened with a resounding 11-0 five-inning win over Dublin and a 5-4 victory over Camden County.  

It was Kara Canetto (4-0, 0.619) with the route-going performance, a three-hitter, against the Irish while it was Sarah Beasley with the complete game six-inning (time limit) performance, allowing just two hits, over Camden.

Far and away their most impressive performance of the season came against AAAAAAA Camden County.  

The Lady Wildcats came into the contest with wins over AA powers Vidalia and Berrien County. 

In what also proved to be one of the most exciting contests of the season, SCHS trailed 1-0; led 2-1; trailed again at 3-2 and 4-2; before a three-run fifth proved the difference. 

The rally in the all-important fifth began with two outs and no one on.

In that most significant rally of the season, Camille Seckinger singled before consecutive walks to Pamela Dixon, Peyton Ward, and Meliyah Atkins. Canetto then drove home two with a single. Canetto had two of the teams’ four hits. 

In the Dublin contest, a six-run third inning blew open the game.

Against the Irish, a possible first round playoff opponent from Region 4AA, Hafer had two hits and two RBI and Sarah Beasley had two hits each and three RBI.

With their 10-2 record, the team has a batting average of .382 that includes Canetto’s .658 (25-38); Hafer’s .429 (12-28); Atkins’ .414 (12-29); GeeGee Beasley’s .382 (13-34); and Ward and Sarah Beasley’s .344 (11-32 each). 

Canetto has 20 RBI, GeeGee Beasley 17, and Hafer 15. They have outscored their opponents, many of them quite less than stellar, 127-23.
