CCS Softball Splits With Brentwood Academy

Lady Chargers In "If" Game On Friday; GPS Advances With PJP Shutout Wins

Thursday, May 20, 2021 - by special to The Chattanoogan.com

Chattanooga Christian couldn’t close the deal with Brentwood Academy on Thursday and will need a win in the Friday “if necessary” to move on to the Final Four of the Division II-AA state championship next week in Murfreesboro.

CCS took the win in the first game 6-5 when Lauren McGill broke a 5-5 tie with a single in the top of the eighth inning, chasing McKenah Beamon home with what would become the winning margin. The Lady Chargers came close to adding more insurance; however they left two runners in scoring position.

Beamon’s run did hold up as Emily Day going the route in the circle for CCS got the first two Lady Eagles to ground out and ended the game on a pop-up to Madison Vandergriff at short.

Vandergriff was perfect at the plate going two for two with a homerun, while Lauren Kay went three for four with a double and a homerun. Day

Brentwood came back in the second game to force the third game in the series by scoring late in the sixth inning to break up another tie. This time around the Lady Chargers fought hard but could not find the needed runs to ensure a trip to the Spring Fling.

Lauren Kay went three for three at the plate with a homerun.

In other D-II-AA action on Thursday, the GPS Bruisers advanced with two straight wins over Pope John Paul II, GPS winning a pair of shutouts by scores of 14-0 and 9-0.

Game three is set for Friday at Brentwood Academy.
