South Fulton’s Marina Barclay prepares for a tag attempt on Union City’s Angela Chesteen on Wednesday.
The South Fulton softball team is standing on a familiar plateau after its 2-0 blanking of rival Union City.
The Devilettes won their 20th game of the campaign for the eighth straight season and for the 12th time in Curt Lee’s 13-year tenure with the club.
South Fulton begins postseason play in the District 14A Tournament at Union City on Saturday at 1 p.m. against the winner of Friday’s game featuring Trenton and the victor of today’s Lake County-Humboldt contest.
The LC-H’boldt game will be played at Union City this afternoon at 5 due to flooding in Tiptonville and the Strawberry Festival in Humboldt.
Union City returns to the sandlot on Friday at 7 against the winner of today’s play-in contest between Bradford and Greenfield.
In Wednesday’s only other prep action, the Community Christian Academy of Paducah baseball team outslugged South Fulton 10-8 in an make-up game that was added to the schedule late.
Today’s prep slate has the SF baseball team at home against Fulton County in its regular-season finale.

SF 2, UC 0
South Fulton centerfielder Sam Murray made easily the defensive play of the game and likely saved her team’s triumph when she made a diving sprawl of Angela Chesteen’s sinking liner in the top of the seventh and turned a double play by catching Taylor Hargrove off first base.
Union City had put the tying runners aboard when Hargrove reached on an error and Brittany Parker singled to begin the inning to provide the Lady Tornadoes with their best scoring threat of the game.
Chelsie Pitts was a perfect 3-for-3 for the Devilettes (20-6).
Pitts doubled and scored once, while teammate Savannah Larson also smacked a two-bagger and Kacie Daugherty accounted for a run.
Desiray Sturgeon, Macy Maxwell and Marina Barclay each had one hit for South Fulton.
Barclay and Larson both drove in one run.
On the mound, winning pitcher Haley McKinney struck out seven and allowed just two hits. McKinney is 13-3 on the campaign.
Angela Chesteen and Brittany Parker had a double and single, respectively, for the Lady Twisters (17-13).
Losing pitcher Sadie Hollis (11-8) went the distance and fanned three.
CCA 10, SF 8
South Fulton led through four innings, but the Kentuckians tied the contest in the home half of the fifth and tacked on five more runs in the sixth to take a 10-5 advantage into the final frame.
During the sixth frame, SF committed all three of its errors.
Kyle Clouse homered for the Red Devils (14-9).
Meanwhile, Harrison Hawks was 3-for-4 with all of his hits single.
South Fulton’s Ryan Prince, Cody Tatum and Chance Hamlin all had two hits.
Curtis Cathey drove in one run for the Redemn as did Tatum and Hamlin.
