The Lady Warrior Softball team captured a region win in Albany yesterday, defeating Deerfield-Windsor by a final score of 6-2.
With Abby Lee on the mound, the Lady Warriors kept the Deerfield offense quiet. Lee had 7 strikeouts and allowed only 4 hits in her 7 innings of work.
Offensively, Bailey Noah hit a 2-RBI double in the Top of the 1st to ignite the Lady Warriors to an early 3-0 lead. Deerfield scored an unearned run in the Bottom of the 3rd and another in the 5th inning to close the gap to 3-2.
Noah capitalized on a Lady Knights' error in the 6th inning to score and extend Brookwood's lead, 4-2. Abby Lee kicked off the 7th inning offense with a double and then scored on a Knight error. Noah had another RBI single to score Abby Jones, giving the Lady Warriors the final 6-2 edge.
Brookwood is now tied with Deerfield for 3rd in the Region, with tomorrow's home game against Southland playing a determining factor for postseason play.
The Warriors took an exciting game last night in the 4th Quarter at home over Loganville Christian. Mac Brandon's touchdown gave Brookwood the late lead and the Warrior defense held on in the final minute for the win!
In a hard fought 14-7 win, the Warriors took the season opener at home over Westwood last Friday night. After falling behind in the 1st Quarter, the Warriors scored 14 unanswered points to secure the win.
Jacob Hilson's 2nd Quarter interception shifted the momentum and allowed the Warrior offense to march down the field to end the half. Landon Hall's 7-yard touchdown run just before Halftime sent the teams to the lockerroom tied.
Nathan Yokley's interception late in the 3rd Quarter stopped a Westwood scoring threat. The game-winning drive in the 4th Quarter was capitalized by a Marcus West touchdown run from 6 yards out with less than 5 minutes remaining.
The Brookwood defense was exceptional throughout, allowing only 48 yards of Wildcat offense and 3 first downs for the game.
