In Game 2, EGSC bounced back with a walk-off homerun in the bottom of the seventh inning by Allana Hooks.
The stage would be set with the Lady Bobcats trailing 3-4 in the bottom of the seventh inning. Alaina Lee would single up the middle to put Hooks up at the plate with 2 strikes. Hooks delivered with a walk-off homerun over the center field fence to give East Georgia the win 5-4. Mattie Cash got the win on the mound for the Lady Bobcats.
“We never gave up all day long,” said Head Coach Chuck Wimberly after the victory in Game 2. “We felt like we played good enough to win Game 1 and GMC rallied late to win game one, but our Lady Bobcats came through in the end with a tremendous victory over a very good GMC squad in Game 2. I am so proud of our team and their never-say-quit attitude. This was a great win for our program.”
