Successful SCMS softball season ends
Southeast Bulloch Middle School Jackets defeated Screven County 11-3 Tuesday to conclude SCMS’s season, but the score does not show the true story of the game.
Screven County got things started in the first inning, scoring two runs to take the lead. Southeast Bulloch scored one in the bottom half and the Lady Gamecocks were winning 2-1.
In the bottom of the second, SEB pulled away for good with five runs on three errors.
Screven would score in the 4th making the score 7-3 SEB.
Jonna Ward led Screven with one hit in three at bats.
“You can’t make errors against a good ball team and expect to win,” said assistant coach Terry Kile. “Southeast’s pitcher is really good, and you have to keep pressure on her to beat her. You have to tip your cap to the coaches for Southeast Bulloch and their players. They played a great game. We will feel this one for a while, but learn from it and keep building our program. We have great talent in this county and Coach Shipes and I knew going in that we would not do it in just one year. We plan to be on the hunt to bring home a region title every year.”
The Lady Gamecocks finished the season 6-6 and 5-5 in region play.
Head coach Cassie Shipes said, “It was a great year for our girls. We fell only one game short for the chance play for a region title, but Coach Kile and I feel we are on the right path with the middle school program. I can’t say enough about our eighth grade girls. They played hard all year, and we will be sending Coach Doyle some good talent.”
