BCHS came into Tuesday’s region opener versus East Laurens on a offensive cold streak. The Lady Royals had been no-hit their past two games. Though the offense was still light, they got a big hit when needed to prevail.

Leading 1-0 on a combination of walk, stolen base, and errors, EL got a two-run single in the third. Rebecca Bowling, who reached in the home half on a hit by pitch, scored the tying run on a wild pitch.
