Freshman Rylie Beddingfield tossed a complete-game gem Tuesday as Winder-Barrow picked up a 5-1 win at Habersham Central in a GHSA Region 8-AAAAAA contest.
The Bulldoggs bounced back from an 8-5 loss at Buford on Monday to improve to 4-3 overall and 2-1 in region play. Beddingfield allowed just the one run on five hits and struck out three without any walks or hit batters. The Bulldoggs also played error-free defense to help the pitcher out in the field.
Dayton Power led the Bulldoggs at the plate, going 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles and two RBIs. Her RBI double in the top of the third broke a scoreless tie, and she had another one in the fifth that put WBHS up 4-1.
Carlee Schotter was 2-for-3 with a double and two RBIs; Rachel Harwell was 2-for-4 with a double; Abby Polk was 2-for-2 with a double and a walk; and Kendal Miller had an RBI double.
The Bulldoggs have a non-region game at Hebron Christian on Wednesday and will be back in region action Thursday at Dacula.
