First Presbyterian Christian Academy played Toombs Christian Academy to a 7-7 tie on Friday in Lyons.
The Georgia Independent School Association Region 2-AA game was called after seven innings.
Region games don’t normally end in a tie, but according to Highlander baseball coach Bruce Green, circumstances caused the game to called.
“First, we had a weather delay,” Green said. “And then we resumed play, but we eventually ran out of daylight. Unfortunately, not all schools have lights so the officials had to stop the game.”
If the Highlanders and the Crusaders end the season with the same record, a tie-breaker will be scheduled to determine the final seeding before the postseason tournament.
FPCA scored one run in the second inning, two in the fourth and four in the seventh.
Toombs scored one run in the third inning, two runs in the fifth, one in the sixth and three in the seventh.
