Meanwhile, Adairsville won its fourth straight non-region game with a 10-5 victory over visiting Armuchee.



The Lady Canes won an offensive shootout Tuesday night in their first Region 7-5A game of the year, defeating visiting Hiram 13-11.

The two teams combined for 26 hits including eight extra base hits.

Cass softball opened play in Region 7-5A Tuesday night with a 6-3 win over Dalton at the Cass Athletic Complex.

The Colonels built a 6-0 lead through five innings with a run in the first, three in the third, and two more in the bottom of the fifth inning.

Dalton scored a run in the sixth and added two more in the top of the seventh but Cass pitcher Alexis Woods was able to induce a fly out to end the game.

Ansley Hight had two hits including a two-run home run in the fifth inning. It was her fifth homer in the Lady Colonels’ first six games this season and she finished the night with four RBIs.

Last season, Woodland eliminated Calhoun after both teams qualified for the Final Eight in Class 5A in Columbus. Tuesday night, the visiting Yellow Jackets exacted a bit of revenge with a 12-4 Region 7-5A win over the Lady Cats.

Calhoun (3-1, 1-0) rattled off 20 hits in their win and scored in each of the final five frames after trailing Woodland 2-0 in the early going.

Collum (4 IP, 7R, 6ER, 12H) was saddled with the pitching loss. Dorn (3 IP, 5ER, 8H, 1BB, 1K) pitched in relief.

Woodland (2-4, 0-1) travels to Hiram Thursday for a 5:55 p.m. region matchup.
