Region 2-AA Softball Playoffs

The Region 2-AA softball playoffs begin today (Wednesday) and will last a week.
Wednesday’s games pit No. 5 seed Swainsboro vs. No. 8 seed St. Vincent’s Academy and No. 6 seed Bryan County against No. 7 seed Toombs County in single game playoffs.
Thursday, No. 3 seed Bacon County will host the lowest seed advancing and No. 4 seed Metter will host the highest seed advancing, both in best-of-3 series.
Next Monday, play begins with a pair of best-of-3 series, No. 1 seed Jeff Davis hosting the lowest seed advancing and No. 2 seed Vidalia hosting the highest seed advancing. The games in Hazlehurst will be at 4 and 6 p.m. and the if-game will be Tuesday at 6.
Play winds up next Thursday. The winners of the Monday-Tuesday series will play one game for the No. 1 and No. 2 seeds in the state playoffs. And the losers will play one game for the No. 3 and No. 4 seeds.
Both of next Thursday’s games will be played in Hazlehurst.
As the regular season games came to an end, Jeff Davis, Vidalia and Bacon County each had 10-2 region records. Jeff Davis’ losses came to Bacon, Bacon’s losses came to Vidalia and Vidalia’s losses came to Jeff Davis, so there was no head-to-head tie-breaker. The next tie breaker used the least number of runs allowed by each school in games against the three teams tied, with the team giving up the most runs eliminated and the other two teams seeded by head-to-head competition.
Jeff Davis had given up 16 runs, Vidalia 17, and Bacon 18. That would eliminate Bacon, leaving Jeff Davis and Vidalia. Since the Lady Jackets defeated the Lady Indians in both games, the Lady Jackets were awarded the No. 1 seed.
