But Landa Dominy got a pop out then groundout to third baseman Aliyah Whitehead to preserve a 14-13 win. Greer finished 3 for 3 with 2 RBI. Tori Little was 4 for 5 with an RBI double. Jordan Williams was 3 for 4 with a double.
Whitehead went 3 for 5 with 2 RBI. BCMS plays second seeded West Laurens in the semifinals Saturday morning at the Dodge County Rec. Department. Game time is 10 am.
