Diamond ladies sweep Tattnall; next series at home Saturday

Using their usual formula of strong pitching, good defense and just enough hitting the SCHS Lady Gamecocks outdistanced visiting Tattnall County 2-0 and 12-4 in the first round of the Class AA state playoffs Tuesday. 
Winning the series enables the Red and White to host a second round series Saturday against either 4AA second-seed Putnam County or 1AA No. 3 seed Thomasville.
Originally scheduled for a doubleheader on Tuesday, the Putnam-Thomasville series was pushed in Wednesday and, Thursday, Oct. 15, because of inclement weather earlier in the week. 

Cheerleaders take third in Suwanee

Making another long trek to North Georgia the SCHS Lady Gamecock cheerleaders took third place at Peachtree Ridge High School in Suwanee Saturday afternoon.
With one more regular-season competition remaining, Oct. 24 at Effingham County, the squad is fast approaching their chance to quad-peat as 3AA champions when the region meet takes place at Jenkins County High School Nov. 7.

Cross country has disappointing outing

Running on foreign soil for the first time this season, the SCHS Lady Gamecock cross country team of Anna Canetto competed at Ebenezer Saturday, Oct. 10, finishing in sixth place. 
“We have 11 practice days before the region meet in Cochran,” said Canetto on Monday. “They have changed the course from last year and we have a lot of work to do.”
Overall, the SCHS performance was disappointing as the squad finished behind St. Vincent’s Academy (57), St. Andrew’s Academy (75), Effingham County (77), Savannah Christian (79) and South Effingham (90).  SCHS totaled 156.

Lady Gamecocks top Vidalia for region title

Putting together their second seventh-inning comeback of the tournament, the SCHS Lady Gamecocks scored three in the top of the final frame to come from behind and claim a 3-1 victory over Vidalia in the Region 3AA championship tilt Oct. 7 in Swainsboro. 
Upping their record to 22-1 and their four-year record to 87-26, the program took away its third region title in four years.

Red-hot Gamecocks blow past Indians 33-23

Absolutely exploding with three scores in the final minutes of the third quarter, SCHS’s suddenly high-octane Gamecocks coasted past home-standing Vidalia 33-23 in a contest that was not nearly as close as the score would indicate.
Improving to 3-3 on the 3AA season, the Roosters put themselves squarely into the race for the fourth playoff spot from the “SEC” of AA football, Region 3AA.
The Gamecocks will have a chance to prove themselves Friday night when third-place Swainsboro comes to Kelly Memorial Stadium for the annual Hall of Fame game.

Bleckley softball comeback a springboard for the future?

The original idea for this column was to focus on a region softball championship with a big football victory kicked in to give some added flavor.
Mother Nature’s rain flavor (all too much needed) on Monday, however, messed up the original idea. The tournament ended a day later than planned.
Maybe the comeback win over Bleckley County will suffice.

Kile a state champ again

Elisabeth Kile of Screven County Elementary School claimed gold at the 2009 Special Olympics State Fall Games in Statesboro the weekend of Oct. 2-4.
Kile won the Division One Girls state championship for softball skills which consists of throwing, hitting, fielding and running bases.
This is Elisabeth’s second consecutive state title as she won state in basketball skills January 2009. The SCES student looks to defend her basketball title again in January in Marietta. 

Gamecocks' late score tops Royals for homecoming win

Taking advantage of a 49-yard punt return by senior Jeremy Mills, the SCHS Gamecocks put the winning score on the board with just 27 seconds remaining in the game to escape with a 23-16 win over visiting Bleckley County’s Royals in the annual homecoming contest at Kelly Memorial Stadium Sept. 25.
The win evens the Rooster record to 2-3 in 3AA and places them in a logjam with four other foes posting two-victory worksheets looking up a the unbeaten trio of Jefferson County, Dublin and Swainsboro.
SCHS will travel to Vidalia to face one of those other two-win teams Friday.

Win or lose in Game One, they will play again later Saturday. Finishing their regular season at 18-1, the Red and White will enter the region tournament as the No. 3 team in the state, behind Buford and North Oconee.

Homecoming night featured something for everyone

Homecoming games are those which bring out the crowd, albeit frequently to see the queens introduced and crowned. 
Whatever the case, the large crowd -- I won’t say overflow because there was always the visitor’s side -- certainly got its $7 worth last Friday. Pretty or not, the game went down to the final minute and the good guys won.
That is all a paying fan can ask for. Kelly Memorial Stadium was proud.

SCMS Gamecocks defeat South Effingham

The Screven County Middle School eighth grade Gamecocks defeated visiting South Effingham Mustangs 44-18 Sept. 16 to even their record at 1-1 on the season. 
The Gamecocks took the opening kickoff and marched 60 yards for the first score of the day on a 4-yard run by Chris Oliver. 
After a Mustangs punt, the Gamecocks drove again down to the 2-yard line after a 30-yard pass from Bailey Pollock to Aaron Roberts. 
Again Oliver scored from the 2 for his second touchdown of the game. 

There is always softball ....

The ride home from The Pit Friday night was, of course, a quiet one.  A lost game that seemed so winnable for better than a half was racing through my brain. I kept seeing a pair of short passes turn into long touchdowns. I kept seeing muddy white uniforms. I kept seeing the ball on the ground far too much.
In the scoring summary the 49 and 52-yard TD passes of Toombs sound like the bombs thrown by Joe Cox and Ryan Mallett in Fayetteville Saturday night.   If you were in The Pit you know those passes were far from bombs, but just as effective.

Lady Gamecock softball downs Swainsboro

Now ranked number four in the statewide Georgia Athletic Coaches Association poll, the SCHS Lady Gamecocks increased their stranglehold on Region 3AA-A with a 7-0 win over homestanding Swainsboro Tuesday. 
Hosting Southeast Bulloch Wednesday in a make up of last week’s Senior Day contest washout, the Red and White will complete their regular season with a trip to AAA Richmond Hill on Monday (in a make up of another rain out from last week) and Laney on Tuesday in the subregion finale.

Toombs County comeback nails SCHS Gamecocks, 19-8

Scoring 19 unanswered points, the Toombs County Bulldogs scored an important 19-8 Region 3AA victory over the SCHS Gamecocks in the muddy confines of The Pit in Lyons Friday night. 
Now 1-3, the Roosters will host Bleckley County Friday night in the annual Homecoming contest.
Taking the opening kickoff and rolling down the field with a 65-yard, seven-play drive, the I-formation of Pat Collins appeared to be in high gear.
