Harlem prevails in battle of Bulldogs

The Thomson Lady Dogs fell to the Lady Dogs of Harlem, 6-2, in softball action Sept. 8.

After a scoreless first inning, Harlem jumped ahead in the second, scoring once off a hit-by-pitch batter with bases loaded, and again off an infield sacrifice to go ahead 2-0. Harlem scored again in the third off a steal home to bring the score to 3-0.

"We gave it to them in the first three innings of the ball game," community coach Ty Poss said following the game. "Too many errors, and too many strikeouts. I stopped counting strikeouts after a while."

Thomson got on the board in the third inning, scoring a run off an RBI single by Brianna Poss, and again from a sacrifice RBI by Christan Marsh to pull within one.

The score remained at 3-2 until the sixth inning, when an RBI single put Harlem ahead 4-2. A 2-RBI homer in the sixth put Harlem ahead 6-2.

Thomson was unable to generate any more runs, however, and the game ended after regulation play with 6-2 as the final score.

"The errors were definitely the problem," Poss said. "The score really should have been tied at 2-2 going into the seventh. I think they really only had two earned runs, off a base hit and a home run, everything else we gave to them. But we did have some freshmen come in and play real well, and I'm pleased with that."

THE LADY DOGS played a tournament in Evans over the weekend, defeating Hart County 6-3 on Friday, before losing 16-4 to Evans on Saturday.

The Lady Dogs visited Westside and Washington County on Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively. The return to action in the Greenbrier Tournament on Friday and Saturday.
