Maggie Schandera pitched well, according to Compton, and recorded 12 strikeouts in the loss.

Madison Worley had a double to start off the game for Dawson County and scored the team's first run of the season.

Dawson County rebounded on Friday. The team got off to a 7-1 lead against the Dragonettes from Pickens County Middle.

Compton's team scored five runs in the first inning. The game was called in the fifth inning due to the "mercy rule."

Pitcher Ashton Bruce pitched a fine game, according to Compton. Bruce recorded nine strikeouts in the win.

Scoring runs for Dawson were: Gabbi Buchan, three, Lacy Mills, Karly Thurmond and Schandera with two runs each. Brandi Williams and Kati Brady also each added a run.

Worley had another great game at the plate, she had three singles. Worley is currently batting .625 after two games.
