Bradwell Institute hosted McIntosh County Academy Monday in a double-header, which resulted in two losses for the Lady Tigers.
The Lady Tigers lost 18-3 and 18-6.

Between games, Bradwell honored its lone senior player, Tamia Johnson.
During the first game, the Lady Tigers jumped out to a 3-0 start. But at the top of the second inning the Lady Buccaneers responded with five runs.
Bradwell had a series of throwing and fielding errors and the Lady Buccaneers capitalized on them. They ran in three more runs in the third, six in the fourth and four in the fifth to close the game.

Lady Buccaneer pitcher Aaliyah Baker got the win. She walked one Lady Tiger and struck out two.

During intermission an emotional Johnson was showered with gifts from her teammates. She has been playing softball since the age of 4 and is looking to play collegiately upon graduation.

In the second matchup, the Lady Buccaneers were up 7-4 by the end of the second inning. MCA then extended the lead, scoring 11 runs in the next two innings while holding Bradwell to two runs.
Baker again earned the win.

The Lady Tigers are 1-17 overall and 0-9 in Region 2-6(A).
Bradwell was traveling to Effingham County Tuesday for a region double-header and will host Effingham Thursday at 5 p.m.
