Spring sports scores from Thursday

Spring sports were in full effect tonight with the GHSA State Tournaments for baseball, soccer and lacrosse all underway. 

On the baseball diamond, the Loganville Red Devils took on the Carrollton Trojans in the second round of the playoffs. In game one, the Trojans went up 1-0 in the top of the second off an RBI double from Ty Murray. Loganville had a chance to tie the game in the bottom of the inning, but runner Michael Knight was thrown out at the plate by right fielder Charlie Lanier. The Red Devils finally plated two runs in the third following a homerun from Blaine Marchman over the left-center wall to give Loganville the lead. The Red Devils continued to tack on the runs, adding two more in the fourth to increase their lead. Carrolton managed to score once more but would lose game one 5-2.

Now in game two, Loganville picked up where it left off with an RBI single from Ian King to gain an early lead. Carrolton loaded the bases in the bottom of the first but failed to plate any runners. The Red Devil bats continued to shine as Loganville increased its lead to 9-1 by the top of the fourth, giving the Trojans a heavy deficit to come back from. Carrollton tacked on three runs in the sixth to decrease Loganville’s lead, but would give up six more runs and give the Red Devils the 15-4 win as they move one step close to their third state title in three years.

On the soccer pitch, Luella previously advanced out of the first round of the boys Class AAAA playoffs as a No. 4 seed and visited Region 2’s second-seed Spalding to play for a spot in the quarterfinals. The Lions stunned Spalding early and jumped to a 2-0 lead just eight minutes into the action. Ashton Woods assisted a Haden Davis header to get Spalding on the board in the eleventh minute and then Bryan Franklin set up Adrian Perez for the equalizer. Franklin set up Davis in the second half to put Spalding up 3-2 and then Angel Madrigal assisted Bryan Franklin to build Spalding’s lead to 4-2. Luella found the net again in the 33rd minute, before Spalding closed out the 4-3 victory. 

In Class A-5A girls lacrosse, top seed Union Grove jumped out to a 14-2 lead at the half and defeated the Henry County Hawkettes 23-5. Margot Peters scored five of her game-high eight goals in the first half and Kimora Bailey also provided Union Grove with five first-half goals before tacking on sixth in the second half. Meredith Foreback (3), Skylar Smith (2), Amberly Graham (2) and Montana Harris also scored for Union Grove. Henry County sophomore Angie Forbes finished with a hat-trick, and teammates Elle Omokhudu and Porsche Davis also scored for the Hawkettes.
