Death, Taxes, and Alexander Central and North Davidson will cross each others’ path in the State Softball Playoffs, we’ll get to that !
Alexander Central 10
SW Guilford 0….game called after 6 innings
Alexander Central routed Southwest Guiford in Round III of the State 4A Softball Playoffs Tuesday night in Taylorsville. The Lady Cougars jumped on top 2-0 in the first inning and never looked back wrapping up the game with 4 runs in the 6th.
Kendra Mayes overcame a shaky start after walking two batters in the first and pitched a 4 hit shutout. Caroline Maltba went 3-4 with a whopping 7 runs batted in for ACHS who pushed their season record to 26-3.
Next in Round IV, it’s what people have come to expect, a showdown between two of the State’s premier programs. AC will host North Davidson on either Thursday or Friday. North beat South Caldwell 3-1 to advance Tuesday evening. The two programs more often than not determine the Western representative in the State Finals although this year the game will reward the winner a spot in the West Regional Final.
