The Tigers scheduled two back-to-back games at home Friday and Saturday to help the squad prepare for its first-round playoff game against East Coweta this Friday in Sharpsburg.

Last Friday’s game pitted the Tigers against Calvary Day. The private school dominated the Tiger squad in three innings, winning 21-0.

On Saturday, Bryan County battled Bradwell and the squads hit to the very end with Bryan County edging out the Tigers by 2, winning 10-8.

Tigers Trivon Williams and Steven Dill hit homers against Bryan County. Tiger coach Rhett Helgren said pitcher Eran Hodge showed his best effort of the season. Williams took the loss on the mound.

"If he can mix up some pitches like he did after the first three
innings, we can use him next week in the playoffs," he said.

The Tigers finished fourth in the region with a 7-5 region 3-AAAAA record and 9-17 overall. East Coweta are in first place in region 4-AAAAA with a region record of 18-0 and 23-3 overall record.

The Tigers take on the Indians on Friday at 4 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. If they earn one victory they play again on Saturday for the tie-breaker.
