Woodland 4, Griffin 2 (Thursday)
STOCKBRIDGE — The Griffin High Lady Bears softball team committed four errors which helped blow a 2-0 lead, eventually losing 4-2 to the Woodland High Lady Wolfpack Thursday evening in Region 4-AAAA action on the road. The game was delayed for nearly an hour due to lightning strikes and rain.
Griffin’s two-game win streak ended and so did the Lady Bears’ hold on first place as they fall to 3-4 overall and 1-1 in region play.
Griffin raced to a 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning thanks to consecutive hits by Chelsea Calloway, Amani Durant and Cleopatra Randolph. Woodland cut the lead to 2-1 in the bottom of the first and took the lead for good at 3-2 in the next inning thanks to 2 Griffin errors and a walk.
Two more errors by the Lady Bears and another walk in the fourth led to Woodland’s final run, making the final score 4-2.
Calloway went 2-for-4 in the contest and Randolph pitched a complete-game five-hitter for Griffin, whose next game is a road contest at region foe Locust Grove Aug. 28 at 5:30 p.m.
