HINESVILLE, GA -- The Liberty County Panthers entered the GHSA 3A softball playoffs as a No. 2 seed, being able to host a playoff game.

On Wednesday, they played Tattnall County in a doubleheader during the first round of the postseason.

The Panthers fell in both games, eliminating them from the playoffs.

In the first contest the Panthers lost 16-0.

On the back end of the doubleheader, they dropped to Tattnall 12-0, ultimately ending their season.

"Overall, we had some learning opportunities, but the girls played hard," Panthers Head Coach Charlene Collins said after the playoff game. "We had a few bad moves but we're going to get them next year."

The Panthers ended their season 6-11 (5-3 Region 3-3A).

"From the get-go of the season, we had a rough one with Covid and our team having to quarantine a few times," Collins said to reflect on the season. "We had a great season. We came in second place for the region which brought us to the playoffs. In our last region playoff game against Southeast Bulloch, our starting catcher broke her hand. That kind of hurt us pretty bad. Pretty devastating to the team. Going into a playoff game without your starting catcher is rough."
