Long County High School won their second game in a row Friday, defeating Charlton County High School.
The Blue Tide had to travel to Folkston to take on the tough Indians, but the trip was a good one for the Long County team as they won, 9-5.
Tommy Freeman started for Ludowici and the senior allowed only three runs in six innings. With two outs in the six, Long County head coach Brian Thomas sent in reliever David Shuman, who closed the game.
Thomas said he was pleased with the team’s efforts, and said that the team hit the ball well.
The win improved the Blue Tide’s overall record to 9-10, and their 2-AA Region mark to 3-8.
Yesterday the Tide were back in Ludowici, taking on Benedictine Military School in a big region match-up. The Cadets went into that game with a record of 8-9 overall and were 5-6 in the 2-AA.
Monday, the Tide face Groves High in Savannah. The Rebels currently stand at 4-13 overall and at 3-4 in the 3-AAAAA Region.
When the teams met earlier this month, the Tide won 10-4. So the Rebels will be looking to even the score.
One plus for the Tide in the contest will be that the team is expecting senior Bryan Wingate to be back on the field. Wingate suffered a lower ankle sprain against Windsor Forest last week and has been unable to play. With the senior back in the line-up, the Tide will have one of their biggest bats back at the plate.
The game begins at 4:45 p.m. Results from the BC and Groves games will be in Wednesday’s Courier.
