Southeast Whitfield (0-20) was shut out Thursday at home 22-0 by Cedartown (11-13).

After scoring nine runs in the first two innings, Cedartown added 13 in the third to end the game via mercy rule.

Central of Carrollton 6, Northwest Whitfield 5

Northwest Whitfield (15-8) pushed undefeated Region 7-4A foe Central of Carrollton (23-0) to the brink of its first loss Thursday in Carrollton, but a 10th-inning sacrifice fly from Central handed the Lady Bruins a loss.

With Central leading 5-3 entering the seventh inning, Eden Rann blasted a two-run home run to tie the game and eventually force the extra frames. Two scoreless extra innings went by before Central ended it with the walk-off sacrifice.

Abi Snipes homered in the second inning for Northwest to bring home the Lady Bruins first three runs. Torrey Cummings also finished with two hits.

Central finished off a three-game series sweep of the Lady Bruins. The Lady Lions earned two wins in Tunnel Hill on Tuesday.

Of the Lady Bruins' eight losses on the season, six have come against teams that are still undefeated — Central and fellow Region 7-4A member Heritage. The other two came against 19-2 Gordon Lee.

The Lady Bruins look to get back in the win column Tuesday with a doubleheader in Jasper against Pickens at 4:30 p.m.

Rockmart 4, Coahulla Creek 1

Coahulla Creek (6-9) dropped a game at Rockmart (11-8) 4-1 Thursday.

Steahl Smith pitched for Coahulla Creek, allowing four hits and striking out seven.

Coahulla Creek plays at LaFayette Monday at 5:30 p.m.

South Paulding 5, Dalton 1

South Paulding (14-5) downed Dalton (4-8) in Douglasville 5-1 Thursday evening.

Dalton struck first in the top of the fourth inning after the first three innings ended without a score, but South Paulding scored the last five runs.

Aliza Martinez knocked a homer over the left field fence for the lone Lady Cat score. Ella Hill finished 2-for-3.

The Dalton pitching combo of Haley Curtis and Kaylee Tatum allowed four runs to South Paulding with three strikeouts.
