The Brantley High School softball team defeated Long County on Tuesday, 3-1, in Nahunta.

"We didn’t play our best, but we did play well," Blue Tide coach Jennifer Alfirov said. "We are still making too many mental mistakes to come out on top."

Despite the loss, the coach said she was pleased with the team’s effort, citing the performances of a few players.

"Kimber (Sapp) had a great game behind the plate. Shelby (Mock) made some great defensive plays, and Kayla (Mills) had the RBI double," Alfirov said.

The loss dropped the Lady Tide’s overall record to 2-8 and their Region 2-AA record to 1-4.

The current standings in the region have Jeff Davis (22-2) on top with a 6-0 mark, followed by Pierce County (7-2-3) and Brantley County (14-8) at 4-1. Next is Appling County (4-4-1) 2-2, McIntosh County (1-5) 1-1, St. Vincent’s Academy (1-6) 1-3, Tattnall County (6-7) and Long County (2-8) 1-4. Charlton County (2-8) 0-4, is in last place.

The Lady Tide played St. Vincent’s Academy yesterday, but results for that game were not available at press time.

The Tide has a rematch with the Liberty County on Tuesday. In their match up, Long County eked out a 7-6 victory. The Lady Panthers currently are 4-6, and 1-2 in Region 3-AAA.

The game in Ludowici starts at 4:30 p.m.
