Royals Survive Late Scare Versus East Laurens

Royals Survive Late Scare Versus East Laurens

While there wasn't a walk off ending Friday when Bleckley traveled to East Laurens, it was another close game between the Royals and Falcons.  Dylan Churchwell connected on the game's first pitch to put BC up 1-0.  Five runs with two outs in the second made it 6-0.  ELHS would hang around, cutting the deficit to 6-3 after two, then 7-4 after five innings.  With BCHS leading 9-4 in the bottom of the seventh, EL's Travis Roach connected on a two out, three-run home run to make it 9-7.  Kace Kirkpatrick came in and struck out the next batter to preserve the Royals win.

How 'Bout Some Friday Night Baseball

Forget Friday Night Football - how about Friday Night Baseball? All three baseball teams from the tri-county area played Friday night, and the only score not in at press time was Dodge County's scores against Dublin.

The Bleckley County Royals seemed to have forgotten the stream of losses from last week, and won again, this time against East Laurens 9-7 in a vital region match-up. Cal Young is pictured at bat for BCHS below, from a previous game, and the photo is used with permission by Monaca Robinson.

Deadly Wreck in Bleckley County

A Cochran man died in a Bleckley County car crash early Friday morning.

Sergeant K.E. Deloach at the Georgia State Patrol post in Dublin says it happened just before 1am Friday on Ruth Church Road.

He says 30 year old Christopher Travis Long of Cochran was driving a 1993 Jeep Cherokee and lost control of the vehicle near a sharp curve.

Sergeant Deloach says Long over-corrected and hit a tree.

Long was pronounced dead at the scene.

All four passengers were taken to the Medical Center of Central Georgia, one by life flight.

Toxicology reports will determine if alcohol played role in the crash.
