Lyons, GA. – AUGUST 29, 2022
On Tuesday, Toombs County Bulldog Softball played a home, non-region game against East Laurens. As a part of the pre-game activities, the Lady Dogs honored our Lyons 10U State Championship Softball team, who beat Swainsboro-Emanuel Co. 14-13 in a wild comeback.
Toombs County defeated the East Laurens Falcons 11-2 in the game thanks to six runs in the third inning. Kassidy Brantley, Brinley Miller, Shay Stringer, and Alexis Hart each had RBIs in the big inning.
Stringer got the win for The Lady Dawgs. She allowed one hit and zero runs over four innings, while striking out five and only giving up one walk. Krista Cantwell threw one inning in relief out of the bullpen.
Nora Grace Mercer led the Lady Dogs at the plate with three hits in three at bats.
Well, it nice to get back in the win column after today. Shay did a great job in the circle and we weee able to put pressure on their defense and cause them to make mistakes. Our speed and athleticism really helped us get this win today.Coach Hayne Brant
