Plymouth, CGA bow out at St. Joe tilt

May 24, 2012

LAKEVILLE — Neither Plymouth nor Culver Girls Academy could wake up their bats, and both finished out their seasons with Class 3A St. Joseph’s Sectional losses at Newton Park Wednesday.
CGA recorded just two hits in a 9-0 loss to the host Lady Indians in game one, while Plymouth batters rallied with a run in the top of the seventh, but it was too little, too late in an 8-1 loss to Jimtown in the nightcap.
The Jimmies and St. Joe will play in the tournament’s championship tonight at 6 p.m.
