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.
