Buford softball advances in state playoffs
Lady Wolves beat St. Pius X in two games
Buford High’s Jazmin Hawkins steals second base as the throw gets past St. Pius X shortstop Maggie Ketner during the fourth inning of game one of the Lady Wolves’ Class AAA state playoff game Wednesday afternoon at Buford High.
BUFORD — The last time Tessa Daniels pitched for Buford, she was the winning pitcher in the clinching game of the 2011 state championship series, delivering the Lady Wolves a fifth consecutive state championship. This time, she pitched two innings, allowed no runs and struck out two Wednesday to jump start a 13-1 win over St. Pius X in Game 2 of the first round of the state playoffs which, coupled with a 11-4 win in Game 1, moves top-seed Buford (26-2) into the second round of the Class AAA playoffs against the winner of the North Murray/Franklin County series. The series will start next Wednesday with a doubleheader at Buford.
