The Treutlen County High School Lady Vikings softball team won games last week over Claxton and Johnson County. Then on Monday of this week they took on Jenkins County on the road.
Treutlen vs. Claxton
It was all Treutlen on Tuesday of last week in Soperton. The Vikings jumped out with four runs in the bottom of the first inning to take the early lead. They added three in the second to go ahead 7-0, and then three more in the third for a 10-0 lead. The Vikings closed the game out in the fourth inning with one run to win the game by the run rule 11-0 after holding Claxton in the top of the fifth inning. Marleigh Clark picked up 4 RBI's in the game for Treutlen. Gracie Hardy got the win in the circle for the Vikings.
Treutlen vs. Johnson
It was a battle between the Vikings and the Trojans of Johnson County on Thursday of last week in Soperton. Johnson got on the board first with a run in the top of the first inning. Treutlen came back with two in the bottom of the second inning to take a 2-1 lead. Johnson went back on top with three runs in the third inning to lead 4-2, but Treutlen answered in the bottom of the frame with two runs to tie the game at 4-4.
Both teams settled down and the defenses took over with just one run being scored over the rest of the game. That run came from the Vikings in the bottom of the fifth inning to take a 5-4 lead. They held to get the win by that score.
Treutlen vs. Jenkins
On Monday of this week in Millen the Vikings took on the War Eagles of Jenkins and the game had an odd ending as they called it after the seventh with a tie.
Treutlen had a big first inning as they plated three runs to take the early lead in the game. Jenkins came back with two runs in the third inning to close the lead to 3-2, and then tied the game at 3-3 in the fifth inning.
Neither team scored over the final two innings of the game. This was a nonregion game and the coaches decided that they did not want to take it to extra innings, so the game was called as a tie, 3-3.
The Vikings took on rival Montgomery County on Tuesday of this week after presstime in Mt. Vernon, and will play the Eagles again on Wednesday at home at 5:00 p.m. Then on Thursday they will play another rivalry game as they travel to Alamo to take on the Bulldogs of Wheeler County at 5:00 p.m.
