`The Toombs County High School softball team suffered a 4-2 defeat to Ware County on Thursday of last week, even though they outhit their opponents nine to three.

Casey Cantwell was on the receiving end of the loss for the Bulldogs. The right-handed pitcher clocked six innings, surrendering four runs, only one of which was earned, on three hits. She managed to strike out six and walked two.

Cantwell also shined offensively, offering a solid presence in the middle of the lineup. She led Toombs with two runs batted in, and as the 3-hole hitter, posted a 2-for-4 performance. Similarly, Nora Grace Mercer matched this with her own 2-for-4 contribution.

Coach Brant commented on the team’s performance, noting, “It was a sloppy day for the Dawgs, both defensively and on the base paths. We need to refine those areas, and once we do, we’ll be a challenge for any team. Our batting today was commendable, and if we continue to bat and pitch as we have been all summer, we’ll be in a strong position moving forward.”

Toombs hosted ECI on Monday of this week after presstime. They will be back in action on Thursday at Tattnall County at 6:00 p.m., and then will host West Laurens on Friday at 6:00 p.m. They will wrap up the week with a home game on Saturday at 9:00 a.m. against South Effingham, and then at 3:00 p.m. they will play Harlem.
