Bleckley All Star teams bring home trophies from Eastman | Community Spirit
Three Bleckley teams were in action on the final day of the Eastman invitational. All three came home with trophies. Despite losing a 10-5 lead in the sixth versus Telfair County, the 9-10 girls got a walk off win in the bottom of the seventh to win first place 11-10.
The 7-8 boys got to the title series against Dodge County with a 20-8 win versus Soperton. BC needed to win twice. They got a 10-3 win in game one. Leading 7-3 in the fifth inning of game two, Dodge scored seven times. Bleckley scored seven in the home half then held on to win 13-10.
A 10-5 lead over Soperton for the 9-10 boys was erased by five runs in the bottom of the fifth. Three in the sixth proved to be enough in a 13-10 win. In the title series against Telfair, BC forced a second game with an 11-5 win. They had an 8-0 lead going to the fourth inning of game two but would be unable to hold it and lose 10-9.
All three teams will be in McRae this weekend for the Telfair invitational.
