Wednesday afternoon was the first of two final region games for BCHS, both against Washington County. Both are key as the Royals and Golden Hawks were the lone teams left in 3-AA with one region loss.

Bleckley’s fourth and fifth errors of the game in the bottom of the seventh accounted for two more Golden Hawk runs, but reliever Dylan Cowart would get out of what was a runners and second and third with one out jam to give the Royals a 9-6 win. Though starter Brody Little gave up six runs, only one was earned. He was 2 for 4 with 1 RBI in the win that put BCHS one win away from clinching the 3-AA title.
