Yesterday, the Nettes Fast Pitch Softball team hosted the SE Whitfield Lady Raiders at Nettes Stadium in what was the final regular season region game for the Nettes. We were scoreless as we went to the bottom of the 2nd but the Nettes were threatening. A runner rounded third and touched home as a bloop single dropped in shallow right. The umpire determined the run would not count however as the runner at 1st was thrown out before the runner came across the plate.
The Lady Raiders would get on the board first in the top of 4th after a solo shot by the pitcher. In the bottom of the inning, the Nettes would load the bases but wouldn't be able to tie or take the lead as we headed to the 5th. In the bottom half of the 5th, the Nettes finally got on the board as Paula Pickett would get on first after a seeing eye single then Brooke Wilson would hit a double of the wall in right field. Starting pitcher Kayla Howard would come up looking to either tie it or give her team the lead.
Howard would beat out an infield single as Pickett would score to tie the ball game. That's all the Nettes would get in the 5th as we headed to the 6th. The Lady Raiders would then regain the lead in the top of the 6th 2-1 and that is how this one would end up. The Nettes will end their regular season this evening at Nettes Stadium in a non-region game against the West Hall Lady Spartans.
This will be Senior Night as PHS honors the seniors for their hard work and dedication to the Softball team. The Nettes will then head to Dalton, GA next week for the 7AAAA Region Tournament Oct. 6-11th. Times for games are TBA.
