The Standard Journal - - LOCAL SPORTS - Staff re­ports

A pair of late re­gion wins al­most got Cedar­town into the Class 4A state play­off this year, but a loss to bring their sea­son to a close last week.

The Lady Bull­dogs fin­ished the year at 10-12 af­ter a pair of wins over Cartersville on Oct.1, with a 4-3, 10-in­ning fin­ish and a 10-4 win over the Lady Pur­ple Hur­ri­canes.

In game 1, the Lady Bull­dogs were tied in the early in­nings with Cartersville, and then both teams added a pair of runs in the ninth in­ning in ex­tra in­nings.

Cedar­town broke the im­passe with a sin­gle run in the bot­tom of the tenth to wrap up the open­ing re­gion play­off game.

They then took a big win in the se­cond game, open­ing in the bot­tom half of the first with a run, then adding three more runs in the se­cond, third and fifth in­nings. Cartes­rville scored in the se­cond, third, fifth and sixth with sin­gle runs each.

Cedar­town’s sea­son came to an end how­ever on Oct. 4, when the Lady Bull­dogs fell in a 5-0 re­gion play­off fin­ish in seven in­nings, un­able to rally back af­ter the Lady Grangers scored a run in the first and four in the third.

The Oct. 4 loss brought to an end an up-and­down sea­son for the Lady Bull­dogs, who went 4-8 in re­gion play and fin­ished be­hind Cartersville in fifth place.

In the re­gion, Chapel Hill took the top seed head­ing into the Class 4A play­offs with a 13-1 re­gion record and go­ing 23-4 through the reg­u­lar sea­son and re­gion play­offs, fol­lowed by a se­cond place LaGrange, a third place Cen­tral and a fourth place Cartersville.

Last year, the Lady Bull­dogs made it into the state play­offs but fell in two games on the road to Her­itage-Ca­toosa.
