Colonels drop final tune-up with state playoffs starting Monday


Alexis Woods (shown here making a tag play earlier in the season) homered and had two hits Thursday in the Colonels' loss at Allatoona.

In a final regular season game Thursday night, the Cass Colonels lost at Class 6A Allatoona, 10-5.

The game was a non-region, tune-up for both teams as they prepare for the opening round of their respective GHSA state tournaments beginning Monday.

Both teams will be on the road for their opening round, best-of-three series. Allatoona is the No. 4-seed from Region 6-AAAAAA. The Buccaneers will play at the Region 7-AAAAAA champions — either Creekview or Sequoyah. Cass (16-12) begins its first round, best-of-three series at Chapel Hill Monday with a doubleheader starting at 5 p.m.

Despite the five-run loss, the Colonels did not trail the entire way Thursday at Allatoona.

Cass held early leads of 1-0 in the first inning and 2-1 in the third, before the host Bucs’ offense took control.

Allatoona (11-13-1) posted a single run in the bottom of the first, three in the third, four in the fourth, and two more in the fifth on their way to victory.

Maci Strickland had a three-hit game for the Bucs. Payton O’Connor (3 RBIs), Emma Bailey, Zoe Porche (RBI), and Rylee Reeves each had two hits for the hosts. KiKi Daniels hit a three-run home run in the fourth inning.

Alexis Woods had two hits including a two-run home run for the Colonels. Kimberly Allen hit a solo home run. Kelly Young had the only other Cass base hit.

Rachael Lee (6 IP, 10R, 9ER, 14H, 2BB, 2K), who drove in two runs, took the pitching loss.
