Alayna Williams went 2-for-3 with three RBIs as Bryan County defeated Toombs County 9-4 at home Thursday.

The Redskins batted around in the bottom of the fourth inning, scoring six times to take an 8-2 lead. Consecutive walks to Shelby Gunn and Kelsey Leggett, followed by a single from Briana Campbell loaded the bases. Gunn scored on a wild pitch, followed by Leggett scoring on a fielder’s choice by Hannah Dickerson. An infield hit by Kourtney Marsh scored Campbell, followed by a walk to Alyssa Edwards. Brooklyn Hewitt loaded the bases as she laid down a perfect bunt that died on the third-base foul line as three Bulldogs stood over the ball.

Marsh scored on a fielder’s choice by Shelby Barfield, and a single by Williams to right field brought home Edwards and Hewitt.

Bryan County picked up another run when Leggett bunted her way on, then stole second and advanced to third when Dickerson grounded out to first. Leggett scored when Marsh bunted.

“We’re still finding who we are,” Redskins Coach Al Butler said. “We’re the only team that can hold us down. We have to learn that we can control the game, but it has to be from the very first pitch.”

Williams also had an RBI single in the bottom of the first inning to tie the game at 1-1.

Barfield went the distance on the mound, giving up six hits and striking out seven.

Bryan County, 6-6 overall and 4-2 in Region 2-AA, is at Screven Thursday and at Vidalia Tuesday.
