Lyons, GA. – September 29, 2023 | Coach Hayne Brant
In a closely-contested match, the Toombs County Lady Dawgs Softball team was edged out 2-0 by Appling County on Thursday, despite out-hitting their opponents four to two.
Both teams showcased stellar pitching with Appling County managing to strike out three batters, mirroring Toombs County Softball’s own tally of three strikeouts.
Appling County seized their scoring opportunity in the bottom of the third inning when Towns contributed with a crucial single, followed by Nails’ grounded out, both actions scoring a run apiece.
Shay Stringer, despite a valiant effort, was handed the loss for the Lady Dawgs. Over six innings, Stringer allowed only two runs (with one earned) on two hits. The Lady Dawgs had a couple of chances to push a run or two across the plate, but could never get the big hit they needed to get the win.
On Saturday, September 30, 2023, the Lady Dawgs will travel to Vidalia for a game that was rescheduled due to rain. The game will start at 10:30 AM.
