Last night (Wednesday) in Soddy Daisy the Coffee County Lady Raiders took on the Lady Trojans for the Region 3-AAA championship. It was a pitcher’s duel between Soddy Senior and Kentucky signee Kelsey Nunley and Lady Raider Freshman Brianna Jones. In the bottom of the 6th inning Soddy Daisy got only their 2nd hit of the game. The next batter bunted but a miscommunication caused the runner to be safe at first. The runner that was on first broke for third but the throw was late and a throw to 2nd base went into right field and scored the unearned run from 3rd giving the Lady Trojans a 1-0 lead going to the 7th. Juli Layne led off and reached first on an error and got to 2nd when the Soddy defense did not see her break for 2nd and they made no throw. Niki Campbell would sacrifice Layne to third with one out. Chelsea Howell bunted and Layne broke for home but was thrown out. Taylor Gullett did not manage to get on base and Soddy Daisy defeated Coffee County 1-0.
Lincoln County knocked off Riverdale 7-2 so the Lady Falcons will host the Lady Raiders. the game has been set for Saturday night at 7pm. The winner will go to the state tournament in Murfreesboro next week. Thunder Radio will be there with the live play by play action.
