Dawgs stay hot, sweep through first round

By Justin Gray

The Dawgs hosted Hawkinsville in the first round of the GHSA State Playoffs and they came in knowing they were better and had to do their job. In game one, they handed the ball to Senior Bryce Kearson who shoved to say the least. He went seven innings allowing one run while striking out 14 batters. Lawson Mercer and Gabe Lee lead the offensive attack with a combined four hits and three RBI in the 7-1 win.

With the game one win, the Bulldogs could breathe a little and get ready for game two. The offense exploded in game two scoring 13 runs in the affair. Senior PJ Farnum had himself a game going 4-4 with three RBI, he had 4 of the Dawgs nine hits. Jacob Durden also had a multi-hit game. Speaking of Durden, he was on the mound for game two and he was magnificent. He diced up the Hawkinsville lineup for 13 strikeouts all while throwing a no-hitter! In the playoffs, that is even more impressive than usual.

The Bulldogs will now move on to host the two-seed from Region Two, Lanier County in the Sweet Sixteen. This is the Dawgs second straight year in the Sweet Sixteen. Game one will be Thursday, May 4 at 3:00 P.M. and game two will follow thirty minutes after. Game three would be Friday, May 5 at 5:30 P.M., if necessary. Times may change due to weather just like last week. Go pack out the stands and watch the Dawgs play!
