Visiting 8th-ranked Loganville swept Woodland in a doubleheader Wednesday night to win their Class AAAAA best-of-three opening round state playoff series.
The Lady Red Devils won the opening game 6-3 and took the second game 13-3 to close out the series.
Woodland pitcher Sarah Baynard (7 IP, 6R, 3ER, 13H, 2BB, 1K) suffered the loss.
Woodland had a 2-1 lead through three innings and led 3-2 going to the fifth inning, but Loganville scored four runs in the top of the fifth to provide the margin of victory in Game 1.
Morgan Bailey and Brittany Cox (RBI) had two hits each for Woodland. Cox, Jordan Duck and Ansley Evans had the Woodland RBIs.
In the nightcap, Loganville scored in every inning to close out the Lady Cats in five innings. Woodland scored all three of its runs in the third inning to narrow the lead to 4-3 at the time, but that is as close as it would get.
Evans had two hits that included a double and RBI for the Lady Cats.
Woodland’s season ends with a 14-17 mark.
