Walker County Messenger - - Sports - By Scott Herpst

The Re­gion 6-AAAA tour­na­ment is slated to be­gin on Tues­day of this week and the Ring­gold Lady Tigers will open with a best-of-three series at Bre­men.

Ring­gold got two big wins on Mon­day and fol­lowed up with a win over Coahulla Creek on Tues­day. But 24 hours, they lost at Coahulla Creek in a make-up game and went into Mon­day’s reg­u­lar sea­son fi­nale at Mur­ray County with a 4-3 record in 6-AAA North.

Due to news­pa­per pub­lish­ing dead­lines, re­sults of that game were unavail­able as of press time.

The Blue-and-White used a solo run in the bot­tom of the sixth to claim a win in a re­gion cross­over game Mon­day af­ter­noon at Hazel Brown Field.

The Lady Rebels led 5-1 go­ing into the bot­tom of the fourth when the Lady Tigers took the lead with a five-spot. Har­al­son tied things up with a solo run in the top of the sixth, only to see Ring­gold re­take the lead for good a halfinning later.

Kaylee Wo­mack was 3-for-3 with a walk. Cole had a pair of doubles in four at-bats, while Carolyn Hem­phill and Brook­lyn Keith had two hits apiece. Kaylee Phillips got the win in the circle.

Ring­gold 5, LFO 4

In the night­cap of Mon­day’s three-team dou­ble­header, the Lady Tigers ral­lied from a 3-0 first-in­ning deficit and a 4-2 fifth-in­ning hole to tie the game in the sixth on RBI-sin­gles from Hem­phill and Phillips.

Both teams missed chances to score in the sev­enth, but Ring­gold would come through in the bot­tom of the eighth as a one-out dou­ble by Phillips and a sin­gle by Grace Mor­ri­son set the ta­ble for Bai­ley Far­row, who sent a chopper into cen­ter­field past a drawn-in in­field to win the game.

Phillips gave up four earned runs on 11 hits and a walk for the Lady Tigers. She fin­ished with one strike­out.

Ring­gold 5, Coahulla Creek 4

On Tues­day, back in Ring­gold, Phillips picked up the win with a com­plete game vic­tory. She al­lowed 13 hits, but just three earned runs. She fin­ished with two strike­outs.

Jade Gainer was 2-for-3 for Ring­gold. Cole and Brook­lyn Keith each had a key dou­ble and two RBIs, while Far­row and Kaylee Wo­mack had the other two hits for the Lady Tigers.

Coahulla Creek 2, Ring­gold 1

The Lady Tigers lost a re­match at Coahulla Creek on Wed­nes­day. Ring­gold scored once in the top of the first in­ning, but it would be the only run the Blue­and-White would get.

The Lady Colts pushed home the ty­ing run in the bot­tom of the fifth and scored the game-win­ner in the sev­enth.

Cole went 2-for-3, while Mor­ri­son had a triple for Ring­gold, who be­gan the week 10-12 over­all and 4-3 in sub­re­gion play.
