ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

With their backs against the wall, the Knights showed no fear in Saturday's semifinal doubleheader.

After a game one loss Thursday, one loss meant season over. However Deerfield-Windsor dominated Heritage in game two 17-3, and followed that up with an 11-6 game three win.

Scoring runs wasn't much of a problem for the Knights all day long, and head coach Jonathan Davis was proud of his kids' fight.

"We really had one bad inning all day with both games," said Davis. "So we've got to clean that up if we want to finish this thing well. But it was more about our pitcher's ability to get back in the zone and put more pressure on them."

Deerfield will face the winner of Valwood and Trinity Christian in the GISA Class-AAA title game next weekend at Georgia College.
