Cedar­town strug­gling in 5-game skid

The Standard Journal - - SPORTS - From staff re­ports

Where one Polk County soft­ball pro­gram is hit­ting the ball out of the park with their win­ning streak, an­other is try­ing to get back on their feet and off skid row.

Since the start of the sea­son, the Cedar­town Lady Bull­dogs have fallen in their past five con­tests and looked to get back into the win col­umn with up­com­ing games in and out of re­gion play at home and on the road.

Af­ter start­ing the sea­son with a 4-1 loss to Har­al­son County and fol­low­ing that up with a ri­val loss in three in­nings 21-0 to Rock­mart, the Lady Bull­dogs fol­lowed that up by open­ing re­gion play with a trio of close ones and com­ing up short.

They took a 5-4 loss to Cartersvil­le on Aug. 9 on the road to open 5-AAAA play, then added an 11-6 loss to LaGrange in the score­book on Aug. 14. They wrapped up last week on the road at Cen­tral in an 8-1 loss.

This time last year, the Lady Bull­dogs had gone on a four game win­ning streak in tour­na­ment play and opened re­gion play with a win over Cartersvil­le be­fore fall­ing be­hind in a 10-17 sea­son, and end­ing their re­gion with a 4-8 record.

Now they look to bounce back with up­com­ing re­gion play start­ing next Thurs­day af­ter a break.

Cedar­town hosts Troup County in a 5:30 p.m. con­test, fol­lowed by dou­ble head­ers against Darlington on Satur­day at 1:30 and 3 p.m., then head back into re­gion play again next week on Aug. 28 host­ing Sandy Creek.

Check back for more up­dates from the Lady Bull­dogs in next week’s edi­tion.
