Lady Royals fall in eight innings to Dodge County

Lady Royals fall in eight innings to Dodge County

Though Thursday's Bleckley-Dodge softball game was in Eastman, there was a sense of deja vu about the evening.  Both teams would strand runners.  It took eight innings again to decide a winner.  The difference this time is that it would be BCHS who made a key error late. 

Trailing 3-2 in the third, Taylor Little's solo home run tied the score.  An Emmie Meadows single made it 4-3 Lady Royals.  Dodge tied it in the fourth. 

Though BC had a runner at third with no outs in the top of the fifth, she would be left stranded. 

BCHS got out of a two on, no out jam in the bottom of the inning.  Another scoring opportunity for Bleckley in the seventh, runners at second and third with one out, produced no runs.  Dodge had the bases loaded with two outs in their half of the inning but Marlee Bryan struck out Blakelyn Bundick to end the threat.
