The Bryan County softball team travels to Vidalia for a doubleheader Monday in the Region 2-AA tournament. What happens is anybody’s guess.

“The heart of this team is dangerous right now,” Coach Al Butler told the Bryan County News. “We look forward to Vidalia. They got the best of us this year and hopefully they will overlook us a bit we are going to forget we even know them. Wipe our memories clean and attack with full force.”

The “if necessary game” against Vidalia would be Tuesday in the best-of-three series. Bryan County reached this point by taking two of three games at Metter Thursday and Friday, including a comeback 11-10 win in eight innings Thursday night in a must-win game. The Redskins dropped the first game 8-1 and were down 7-0 in the second game before storming back. They won Friday 9-7.

“The effort and determination put forth by these girls is the perfect example of the beauty of Bryan County pride,” Butler said. “The girls have had a season full of challenges and adversity that was far less than desirable.”

The Redskins now stand at 16-14 after a season plagued by injuries. Vidalia, 26-0, has won both regular-season meetings between the teams by a combined score of 25-1.

“Challenges are what makes this team what it is today,” Butler said. “Learning to grow together, leaning on each other, has prepared every kid on this team to be a contributor.”
