Toombs County’s Lady Dawgs Overpower Pierce County with 7-1 Region Win

Lyons, GA. – October 10, 2023 | Coach Hayne Brant


Showcasing their prowess on Tuesday night, Lady Dawgs overwhelmed Pierce Co, finishing with a commanding 7-1 region victor.

While Pierce Co initiated the scoring with a run in the first inning, the Lady Dawgs evened the score in the same inning. The real momentum shift came in the third inning when the Lady Dawgs, asserting their dominance, added three runs in the bottom of the third inning.

Offensively, the spotlight was on Casey Cantwell, who delivered a stellar 3-for-4 performance at the plate, including two singles and a double. Kassidy Brantley matched this intensity, also clocking in a 3-for-4 game with a trio of singles. But it wasn’t just their batting that dazzled; Lady Dawgs’ defense was in top form. Spearheaded by Cantwell’s five critical strikeouts and bolstered by Morgan Kersey’s great night in the field, which included a game-changing out.

If weather permits, the Lady Dawgs will play their final regular season game on Wednesday, October 11th at 6 PM in a non-region game versus Metter. They currently sit at 16-8 and 10-5 in region play and will start their playoff run next week as the number 3 seed from Region 3 in AA.
