UC no-hits mark; Central still waits

UC no-hits mark; Central still waits
There was “no-no” way Bradford was going to upset Union City on Tuesday afternoon in the District 14A Softball Tournament at Trenton.
Twister hurler Karly Hollis spun a no-hitter, allowing just two walks and striking out a dozen as the locals whipped Bradford 10-0.
With the triumph, Union City advances to the semifinals of the winners’ bracket at 4 p.m. today against Halls.
South Fulton also plays in the winner’s bracket semis against host Trenton at 5:30. The winners of those two games play at 4 on Thursday. The losers of today’s two games play each other at 7 tonight with the victor advancing to face Lake County on Thursday at 5:30.
The championship round of the 14A Tournament is set for Friday at 5. Game 2, if necessary, would follow.
In other local softball news on Tuesday, there was simply no way that Obion Central could play at Haywood for the second consecutive day.
The Lady Rebels’ do-or-die District 13AA Tournament game with Milan was postponed for the second consecutive afternoon due to soggy field conditions at Haywood.
Now, the OC girls are slated to play the Lady Bulldogs today at 5 in Brownsville.
If the Lady Rebels win their game against Milan, they will play the winner of today’s Westview-Dyersburg game at 7 tonight.
The loser’s bracket finale is set for Thursday at 5 with the first game of the championship round to follow at 7. Game 2 of the 13AA title round, if necessary, is scheduled for Friday at 5.
All of the district softball action currently being played leads to Monday’s Region Tournament. The district champion will host in the semifinals of the regional event, while the runner-up hits the road.
