Dalton Shepherd would beat the ball to third.

Meanwhile in Hawkinsville: Telfair County forfeitted due to playing in another tournament, giving the 11-12 boys a berth into the second round Wednesday at 7 pm. Speaking of sevens, the 9-10 boys scored seven runs in one inning to go up 7-3 versus Wilcox County.

Luke Churchwell sets to throw to second.

However, it was the last they'd score in a 15-7 loss. Cochran will look to stay alive Wednesday at 5:30 pm. The 7-8 boys came in with a disadvantage, down three players. They were able to win versus Dodge County "White" 16-1.

Against Hawkinsville though, players in different positions on defense plus having ten batters versus Hawkinsville's full 13 made a difference in an 18-0 loss. They play Wednesday at 9:15 pm.
