PLAYOFF RECAP: BASEBALL
By Ricky Dimon
Greenbrier, Stephenson headed for Game 3

Greenbrier, the 2013 Class AAAAA runner-up and arguably the favorite this year, is headed for a win-or-go-home game on Wednesday. The host Wolfpack split with Stephenson on Tuesday, run-ruling the opener 10-0 in five innings before falling 10-7 in the nightcap. As for the other three quarterfinal series, all of them came to a two-game conclusion. Whitewater swept Loganville, Houston County eliminated North Paulding and Gainesville dominated Starr's Mill twice in a row. ... No. 1 seeds Lambert, Milton and Parkview have advanced to the Class AAAAAA semifinals.

Lambert handled Luella, Milton edged Kennesaw Mountain and Parkview overwhelmed Coffee. ... In Class AA, Westminster took care of visiting Westside-Augusta 10-0 and 10-2. Nelson Douglas hit a grand slam for the Wildcats in Game 1 to back the pitching of Hunter Davis. In the clincher, Westminster scored three runs in the top of the first inning before Westside-Augusta answered for two right away in the bottom of the first and still had the bases loaded with nobody out. Conrad Cornell got out of the jam with no more damage, however, and pitched scoreless ball the rest of the way. ... Despite the Wildcats' win, there will be no rematch of the 2013 state championship series between Region 6 rivals. That's because Lovett got swept by host Benedictine via 4-3 and 6-1 decisions. Benedictine forced extra innings in the opener with two runs in the bottom of the seventh and from there the team never looked back. ... Wesleyan at Cook and Greater Atlanta Christian at Berrien are both headed for decisive contests on Wednesday. ... Blessed Trinity is the only Class AAA team safely through the quarterfinals unscathed. The Titans scored twin 3-2 victories over visiting Central-Carroll. ... One semifinal series already booked in Class AAAA is Carrollton vs. Veterans. Carrollton held off visiting Statesboro 5-2 and 7-3, while Veterans came out on top of a low-scoring affair with Lanier by winning 3-2 and 5-0. ... In Class A-Public, No. 3 seed Charlton County went on the road to finish off second-seeded Emanuel County Institute 5-0 in Game 3 on Tuesday. Charlton County will host Gordon Lee in the championship series.

highest classification as Mill Creek and Brookwood will meet in the final. Berkmar won the Class AAAAAA title last year while Collins Hill took home the AAAAA trophy in 2009, 2010 and 2012. Walton is the lone non-Gwinnett program since 2009 to win the state title in the highest classification. 

 

-McIntosh drew one step closer to winning back-to-back state titles in Class AAAAA. The Chiefs shut out a game Greenbrier squad 3-0 in the semifinals last night. It was the second time this season McIntosh had beaten the Wolfpack. The Chiefs have now won 43 straight games and will face Houston County in the semifinals. 

 

-Dalton is back in the Class AAAA finals after beating Spalding 5-0 Tuesday night in the semifinals. The Catamounts have beaten four playoff opponents by the combined score of 29-1. 

 

-St. Pius X, also a defending state champ, made the finals once again in Class AAA after a 4-0 win over North Hall. The Golden Lions sent the Trojans home, who had been on a Cinderella run until last night.

Wildcats have won three straight Class AA titles, but GAC has been ranked No. 1 all season and has beaten Westminster twice this season. 

 

-In Class A, Area 5 has proven to be the best this season as defending champion Paideia has shaken off an early-season malaise to make the final where it will play AIS. The Eagles were ranked No. 1 for much of the season but was knocked off its perch by the Pythons on April 23, a 4-2 Paideia win.

championship on Tuesday by eliminating teams that they had previously beat in the regular season. Lambert was the only in-state school to beat Milton this season (13-11 on March 18) and grabbed another two-goal victory (10-8) Tuesday night over the Eagles to advance to the state championship for the fourth straight season. 

 

The Longhorns were paced with a pair of first-half goals by Sean Curruthers and took a 10-2 lead heading into the fourth. Milton scored six unanswered to make it a 10-8 game, but Lambert was able to hold the comeback attempt short.

 

Roswell also used an early lead to hold off its opponent in the semifinals and defeated visiting Walton 12-8. The teams traded goals early and the score was tied 2-2 before Roswell netted five consecutive goals to take a 7-2 lead. Walton did its best to rally back and used a 4-1 run to cut the deficit to 8-6 entering the final quarter. Peter Kavney opened the fourth quarter with a Walton goal to make it 8-7, but Roswell was able to pull away. The Hornets swept the season series with Area 2-rival Walton with their 12-9 victory on April 23.

 

Roswell and Lambert faced once this season and the visiting Longhorns won the March 12 matchup with a 9-8 edge.

 

Class A-AAAAA set its girls state championship on Tuesday as Kell and Westminster advanced to the finals. Kell survived Blessed Trinity with a 12-11 victory and advanced to the program's first state championship. Westminster, the four-time defending state champs dominated St. Pius X with a 19-9 win to return to the finals.

 

Westminster has lost one game to an in-state opponent all season and it was a 14-9 loss to the high-powered Longhorns. Kell's semifinals victory moved the school to a record 19 wins. Leslie Ferguson netted five of Kell's 12 goals in the semis and teammates Haley Swift and Izzy Palermo both tabbed hat-tricks. Swift led Kell in the first round with four goals and six assists and the potent Kell offense is averaging 16.6 goals per game this season.
