Lowndes rallies past Colquitt for final playoff spot

MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) - Lowndes scored three runs in the top of the 7th for a comeback win over Colquitt County Friday night in Moultrie.

The 6-5 win gives the Vikings the final playoff spot out of Region 1-AAAAAA and eliminates the Packers from postseason play.

Trailing 5-3 entering the 7th, five straight Vikings players walked to tie the game. The Packers were able to turn a double-play, but the go-ahead run came across on the play.

Colquitt County put two runners in scoring position in the bottom of the 7th, but a groundout to shortstop ended the rally.

"That's what we've done all year," says Lowndes head coach Rusty Beale. "We're going to make it a little interesting. But our guys came through at the end, and all the credit goes to them."

The Vikings will be the three seed out of Region 1-AAAAAA.
