Lady Royals Advance to Region Championship Game

Bleckley Loses Close Game to Dublin

Bleckley Loses Close Game to Dublin

Due to region scheduling, Bleckley and Dublin have played the past two seasons in Cochran.  Both games were close contests won by the Irish late.  Friday's matchup was at the Shamrock Bowl.  Despite the different location, it was another close game.  For the Royals, it was another close loss to the Irish.
