Lady Bulldogs go 2-5 in five days of action

Thomson High School's Lady Dogs softball team played seven games in five days, including three games Saturday.

The team lost at Westside 11-3 on Sept. 13 and then at Greenbrier 9-0 on Sept. 14.

In the Greenbrier Tournament at Patriots Park in Grovetown, Thomson beat Vidalia 7-2 and lost to unbeaten Walnut Grove 8-7 on Friday. The Lady Dogs defeated Effingham 10-6 Saturday morning, before falling to Johns Creek 8-1 and then to Savannah Christian 10-3 in the afternoon.

Coach Ayasia Hampton said the game against the Johns Creek Gladiators from near Alpharetta required some adjustments. "It was just hard to go from a 45-mph pitcher to a 60-mph pitcher," she said.

"Our first two games the girls really came together as a team," Hampton said of the Greenbrier Tournament.

"We are playing much better than we were at the end of the last week," said community coach Ty Poss. He said Class 3A Thomson has been facing several 4A and 5A schools.

Several changes have been made in the schedule released at the beginning of the season.

The Lady Dogs returned to action on their home field against the Josey Eagles at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday. That had been scheduled as a road game.

Thomson will visit the Lady Hawks of Washington County in Sandersville at 5:30 p.m. today.

They return home at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday for Senior Appreciation Night and their last home game, against Grovetown.

The Lady Dogs close the regular season at Harlem at 5 p.m. Sept. 29.
