It took nine innings to decide the winner and unfortunately for the Lady Redskins the Vidalia Softball team claimed the 9-6 win. Bryan County High School’s late inning game was then followed by an 8-0 shutout loss to Vidalia during the first round of the Region 2-AA playoffs held Thursday.

At the end of the sixth inning the game was tied 3-3. Both teams kept the game alive by scoring one run each in the eighth inning.
But in the ninth inning the Lady Indians scored five runs on a two run double by Regan Norfleet, a fielder’s choice and an RBI single by Katelin Blount.
