The bat­tles on the soft­ball diamond con­tinue for Cedartown and Rockmart af­ter a short break over the La­bor Day week­end hol­i­day, and both teams got to mix it up on tour­na­ment play head­ing back into re­gion play this week.

The Rockmart Lady Jack­ets started off last week with an 11-10 loss to Pep­perell on the road.

Baylee Wright got a hit up the mid­dle in the bot­tom of the sev­enth to score Grace Huf­ford and give the Lady Dragons a wild Re­gion 6-AAA win at home.

With Rockmart hold­ing onto a 5-4 lead in the sixth, Pep­perell scored six in the bot­tom of the frame to take a 10-5 lead.

The Lady Jack­ets (9-5, 2-3) came back and posted five runs in the top of the sev­enth to tie it up. The go-ahead run was at third with two outs when Pep­perell caught an in­field pop-up to end the at-bat.

Huf­ford then led off with a sin­gle, fol­lowed by Kaylee Mansell’s sac­ri­fice bunt to put Huf­ford in scor­ing po­si­tion.

Pep­perell was led by Daylee McGraw’s three hits while Wright pitched a com­plete game and struck out four. Rockmart’s Emily Love­less had three hits as well, and pitcher Sa­van­nah Sewell had seven strike­outs.

Rockmart fol­lowed that up with week­end tour­na­ment play, fall­ing 1-0 to Ar­muchee on Fri­day but mak­ing up for their re­cent losses tak­ing 2 out of 3 in a 14-2 win over Ar­muchee and a 9-1 win over Coosa on Satur­day. The Lady Jack­ets dropped their third game against Coahulla Creek 4-3.

The Cedartown Lady Bull­dogs had much bet­ter luck last week and over the week­end. They ex­tended their win­ning streak to six games fol­low­ing a Sept. 10 win over Haralson County 40, and a Fri­day win over Camp­bell 13-0 in their tour­na­ment play. The Lady Bull­dogs saw the streak snapped when fac­ing Spray­berry later on in the evening in a 43 loss, but re­cov­ered for two more wins over the week­end.

Cedartown first took an early morn­ing 2-0 win over North Cobb, which was fol­lowed by a loss in the next game 7-1.

The Lady Bull­dogs fin­ished off tour­na­ment play in an 8-0 win over Kell.

Next up for Cedartown is a trip to Car­roll­ton to play Cen­tral on Tues­day af­ter press time, and a Thurs­day home game against Call­away.

Rockmart con­tin­ues re­gion play on Tues­day fol­low­ing press time host­ing Haralson, fol­lowed­ing by a trip to Car­rolton on Thurs­day for their game against Cen­tral.

Both Cedartown and Rockmart will be back on the field against one another on Sept. 22, with the Lady Bull­dogs host­ing the re­gion ri­valry matchup.
