The Purple Hurricanes pushed across runs in each of the first six innings Friday night at Dalton to defeat the Catamounts 8-4 and complete a three-game series sweep.

Dalton led after one inning 2-1 and tied the game at 3-all in the third inning before the Canes scored five runs across the fourth through sixth innings.

Phillip Schiltz (5 IP, 1R, 0ER, 2H, 1BB, 8K) took over on the mound in the third inning and picked up the pitching win. Sawyer Wilson (2 IP, 3ER, 5H, 1BB, 5K) made the pitching start for Cartersville.

Carson Hill

The Colonels stayed close with Calhoun Friday while attempting to salvage one win in the week-long three game series, but the Yellow Jackets prevailed in a 5-4 win.

The loss for Cass foiled a strong relief pitching performance for three Colonels’ relievers.

Trenton Payne, Carson Hill, and Devan Hutchinson combined for three shutout innings and allowed just one hit and one walk over their four innings of work. The Cass offense, however, could not muster the runs needed to catch the Yellow Jackets who led 5-2 in the third inning.

Hunter Lovett (2+ IP, 5ER, 4H, 2BB, 2K) made the pitching start and was saddled with the loss for Cass.

Cayden Roberts, Chase Tatum, and Wesley Collins had the only Colonels’ base hits.

Calhoun improved to 9-11 on the season and 6-3 in Region 7-5A.

Cass (10-9, 5-4) plays three non-region games next week facing Sonoraville Thursday night, Heritage Friday afternoon, and Whitewater Friday night.


The Tigers improved to 5-1 in Region 6-AAA play Friday night with a hard-fought 3-1 win over visiting LaFayette.

The win completed a home-and-home series sweep for Adairsville over the Ramblers.

Three Adairsville pitchers combined to limit LaFayette’s offense

Kaiden Coker (3.2 IP, 1ER, 4H, 3BB, 1K), Dawson Craig (1.2 IP, 0R, 3H, 2BB, 2K), and Jarrett Scott (1.2 IP, 0R, 0H, 0BB, 2K) joined forces to scatter seven hits and five walks with five strikeouts.

Chris Roper had two hits including a triple and two RBIs. Peyton Bowen also finished with two hits. Tyler Driggers homered in the fourth inning to give the Tigers a 2-1 lead. PJ Weeks contributed a double and Landon O’Neal added one hit for Adairsville.

The loss drops LaFayette to 7-13 overall and 0-6 in Region 6-AAA.

Adairsville (11-7, 5-1) visits region-leader Ringgold Tuesday at 5:55 p.m. and will host the blue and gold Tigers on Thursday.
