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.

Region 3-AA football play begins Friday for Bleckley County.  The Royals travel to Southeast Bulloch coming off a 53-17 loss last week at Wilcox County. 

In the game, BC trailed 13-10 in the second.  But the Patriots would score after a drive-stopping holding penalty on fourth down. 

They would convert a fumble and three interceptions into 28 points.  BCHS will be healthier Friday.  Ken Hughes returned this past week.  DB Savon Walters and lineman Cody Pearce were back at practice Monday. 

Defensive lineman Dalton Floyd missed Friday's game due to injuries in an auto accident and will also be back. 

Kickoff in Brooklet is 7:30 p.m.
