Lady Gamecocks fall in region title series
Never getting started, the SCHS Lady Gamecock softball team of Jim Randall Doyle fell twice to home-standing Harlem on Oct. 4 to finish the regular season at 18-9 and as the Region 4AA runner-up.
On Wednesday, Oct. 11, after the Sylvania Telephone’s press deadline, the team hosted Region 3AA third seeded East Laurens in a double header to start the Class AA state playoffs. If there was a split on Wednesday the deciding game will be this Thursday, Oct. 12, afternoon at 5:00.
With a victory in the East Laurens series, the Lady Gamecocks would advance to round two of the state playoffs and will face the winner of the series between 2AA champion Bacon County and Region 1AA fourth-seeded Early County.
The series will be at the home of the highest survivor.
The Harlem series was over quickly, though not as quickly as the SCHS-Jefferson County series the previous week. Game one saw the Lady Gamecocks fall 10-1 and game two was 11-2. Each was shortened by the “run rule.”
In game one, the Lady Bulldogs led just 3-1 into the home half of the fourth before erupting for seven runs to blow the game open.
When SCHS could not score in the fifth, the game was over. The Red and White managed but three hits, two by Kara Canetto. Sarah Beasley (9-5, 1.72) took the loss and got the other safety.
Harlem scored two in the first of game two, while occupying the visitor’s half of the scoreboard. Both were unearned as the error bug came back to bite SCHS in the second game as they made five errors to lead to seven unearned runs.
The Lady Gamecocks cut their deficit to 2-1 after one on hits by Canetto and GeeGee Beasley. It, however, got no closer as Harlem built its lead to 7-1 before the Red and White could score again in the fifth.
Camille Seckinger singled and eventually scored on Meliyah Atkins’ hit. Four runs by HHS in the sixth and none by SCHS ended the game.
Canetto (6-4, 2.27) took the loss with relief help from Melanie Mitchell. GeeGee Beasley had two hits.
