What you need to know
We didn’t get a whole lot of surprises in the first round in 2A.
The one upset was Bogue Chitto beating Union, but the Yellowjackets (14-13) had cooled off a bit and finished 1-3 in their final four games of the regular season before losing two of three to the Bobcats.
St. Patrick and New Site both forced a decisive game three in their respective series against Mize and Pisgah, but couldn’t win the big game to advance.
Puckett’s Waylon Sebren had the best outing in the South in Friday’s 11-0 win over Perry Central. He struck out 12 batters in five innings of work and only gave up a pair of hits.
