The Jackets had seven hits to South Granville's eight hits, but the Jackets eight runners left on base hurt the Roanoke Rapids team. Third base is as close as the Jackets would make it on the bases.
Haley Farrow and Abbi Carpenter had two singles each, Breanna Allen had a double and Michelle Stewart and Meagan Colston had a single each.
Breanna Allen pulled the complete seven innings on the mound for the Jackets allowing eight hits, walking three batters and only striking out one batter.
Post game comments from Lady Jackets head coach Steve Milligan, "It was a tough loss, but pleased with the teams effort. We held the number one 2A team/ number ten team in the state according to MaxPreps to only four runs and all were unearned. We must learn how to execute the bunt better. We had runners in scoring position but could not advance them and had some opportunities."
