Brookwood loses play-in; opens vs. Pinewood in state tourney

THOMASVILLE —

Brookwood will have to work its way up from the bottom in the GISA AAA state tournament.

The Warriors retained the fourth and final seed for the postseason after falling 6-1 to Deerfield-Windsor in Monday’s play-in game.

Brookwood allowed just seven hits but tallied five fielding errors which manifested into four of Deerfield’s six runs. The other two were scored on bases loaded walks. 

“We make those mistakes in the playoffs, and we’re going to have a quick exit,” Brookwood coach Ken Johnson said.

Starting pitcher Peyton Latmore tossed 5.1 innings with seven strikeouts, two walks, three earned runs and six hits allowed before paving way for Drew Goodwin, who threw the final 1.2 innings.

Brookwood added to its busy agenda an unscheduled road game on Tuesday against Terrell Academy as a favor.

Terrell, like many of the Thomasville times, was afflicted by rain in recent weeks and forced to cancel its senior game against Sherwood Christian Academy.

Johnson, who is good friends with Terrell coach Ashley Walker, agreed to make the haul for the Eagles seniors.

Brookwood ousted Terrell 8-5 behind a scattered series of pitchers and recovered offense.

Johnson again sent Goodwin to the mound for three innings, then passed the torch to Cale Deese for an inning and Tyler Thompson for the final three.

The teams tied or traded the lead five times after Terrell jumped to a 2-1 advantage through the first inning. The Eagles extended their mark to 5-3 through four before the Warriors responded with five in the final two innings.

Brookwood (14-9, 2-5) now eyes the first official round of the GISA AAA Tournament after Monday’s play-in. 

The Warriors travel to take on Pinewood Christian (16-3, 7-1) in a best-of-three series beginning Friday at 4:30 p.m.

Johnson said he’s looking forward to two infield practice sessions at home on Wednesday and Thursday after recent weather woes and playing four games in just as many days.
