Lady Braves rally to upend Trojans

(Franklin, GA) — The Lady Braves rallied from a 4-0 deficit to defeat the defending Region 5-AA Champion Lamar County Trojans 6-5 Tuesday in Franklin.

Junior Katelyn Jiles pitched well in relief to earn the win Tuesday

Junior pitcher Katelyn Jiles came on in relief of starter Haley Bennett in the top of the third inning and was dominant over the last four innings of the game to earn the win.

Jiles allowed just one run in the seventh and a big double play turned by the Lady Brave defense stopped the Trojans in the third.

Doubles by freshman Janiyah Strong and Mackenzie White keyed the comeback in the bottom of the fifth.

Today’s scheduled clash with the top ranked team in the country, East Coweta has been cancelled due to a region rain-out conflict yesterday in Newnan.

The Lady Braves will return to the diamond at HCHS tomorrow for another big Region 5-AA match-up with Bremen.
