After night of upsets, Mountain View softball clinches first region championship
A wild Thursday night in Region 8-AAAAAAA softball ended with a pair of upsets, one that gave Mountain View the first region title in program history.
The Bears, despite losing 5-2 to Peachtree Ridge, clinched the championship by virtue of Mill Creek’s 13-12 win over North Gwinnett.
Mill Creek (14-11, 5-6 region) won in thrilling fashion on a walk-off, two-run double with two outs from Lael Ayala. Ayala also walked and was hit by a pitch during the game.
Dallis Goodnight had a big night for the Hawks, going 4-for-4 with four runs and four stolen bases. She also was hit by a pitch.
Olivia Shaw went 2-for-4 with a home run, three RBIs and three runs, while Madison Dobbins went 2-for-4 with an RBI, three runs and a walk.
North fell to 22-5 overall and 7-4 in the region.
Mountain View (22-6, 9-2) was knocked off by Peachtree Ridge (17-8, 5-6) on Thursday. The Lions’ Elle Lunsford pitched all seven innings with 11 strikeouts and no walks. She gave up four hits. Lunsford and Jaylah Jarrell had two hits each to lead the Peachtree Ridge offense.
Mountain View’s Sarah Currie gave up three runs on three hits in four innings with two strikeouts. Lauren Evens drove in both Bears runs on a solo home run and a sacrifice. Currie, Callie Shrope and Claire Schneider each added a single.
