Three scrimmage tournaments.  Two of them were two-day affairs in South Georgia.  Plus an annual trip to the Mary Persons Paw Print Classic.  Those were just some of the games BCHS played this summer to prepare for the season.

It was just as busy during the regular season with trips to Nahunta, Cordele, and Snellville.  Wednesday, Bleckley put that experience to use in round one of the state playoffs versus Metter..  Allie Keel went 2 for 2, Chrystal Harris was 2 for 3 with an RBI single and Jordan Williams went 1 for 2 with a two out, two-run double in the first to power the Lady Royals in a 6-1 win.

In game two, Taylor Dykes' second double of the game in the sixth inning scored two runs.  It gave BC a 6-2 lead. The Lady Tigers cut into the lead and scored three in the seventh.  Dykes struck out the final batter to preserve a 6-5 win.  She was 2 for 2.

Royals suffer frustrating home loss to Lamar County.

The offensive stats from Friday's Lamar versus Bleckley home football game say BCHS did well.  They outgained the Trojans 223-92 including holding Lamar to 31 first haf rushing yards.  But sometimes, there's more to the story.

Lamar scored 14 points via interecpetions returned for touchdowns, the first coming on a halfback pass.  They also blocked an extra point.  On the game's final drive, a tired Royal defense committed a face mask penalty and could not stay onsides when LC went for it on fourth and goal from the four with 47 seconds left.

As a result, Bleckley lost 21-19.  Antavis Robertson had 90 yards on nine carries as well as 63 return yards. LaDarrick Vickers had 73 yards on 10 carries.  BCHS plays at Macon County October 24.  Game time is 7:30 pm.
