Lady Braves Drop Close Game to Bowdon but Bounce Back in First Region Game

Senior Pitcher Alicia Carroll vs. the Red Devils

Lady Red Devils 2, Lady Braves 0:Wednesday night the Lady Brave’s bats went cold as they hosted the Bowdon Red Devils in a game which was rescheduled from a Tuesday rain-out.

After the Devils got on the board with a single run in the top of 1st neither team actually found any offense as the game moved quickly along with the pitchers dominating.

Alicia Carroll pitched well for the Braves only allowing one more run on a 7th inning double by Anna Teague for Bowdon.

The Devils pitcher Trinity Strickland worked her way out of a 7th inning jam to record the shut-out over the Braves 2-0. This win was the tenth in a row for the Devils.

Lady Braves 3, Lady Red Devils 1 (JV): The news wasn’t all bad Wednesday for the Braves though as the junior varsity team was able to pull out a 3-1 victory over the younger Devils thanks to solid pitching by Jordan Watson.

Jordan also had a key hit which scored Anna Shelnutt and Sophomore Ashlyn Summerlin added an RBI with a sacrifice fly.

Lady Braves 19, Red Jackets 0 (3 innings): The Lady Braves bounced back quickly on Thursday when they hosted the Red Jackets of Jordan in the first region 5-AA game of the season.

The girls never looked back after taking a 9-0 lead in the first inning and the game was called due to the run rule at 19-0 after just three innings. Several of the girls had big games at the plate including Tiffany Smith who had three big hits.

The girls will travel to Callaway Tuesday afternoon (5:00) before returning home to battle the Blue Devils of Manchester on Thursday (5:00) at the high school.

The Lady Braves are front runners to win the region championship this year.
