Brookwood forced to cancel third game this season

THOMASVILLE —

Mother Nature continued its plague of Brookwood’s baseball schedule.

The Warriors were rained out for the third time in three weeks on Friday. The weather woes, however, are yielding a cancellation altogether rather than a reschedule.

The victim this go-around was a road tilt at Macclay (Tallahassee, Fla.), piggybacking consecutive games against Master’s Academy and Westwood two weeks ago.

“These games are literally going down the drain,” Brookwood coach Ken Johnson said.

Johnson received confirmation that Friday’s game was called at roughly 2:15 p.m., before the Warriors piled into the bus for the 30 mile trek. Brookwood is slated to play another game in Florida at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday at Munroe (Quincy, Fla.) – a rematch of Brookwood’s extra innings, 4-3 defeat on March 8 – though the forecast calls for a 60 percent chance of showers during the day.

Johnson said he should know by mid-morning whether or not they will get the game in.

The genesis of the all-out cancellations stem from differing schedules. The Florida leagues are well into their seasons and will begin district playoffs in just a few weeks, whereas Brookwood only began three weeks ago. Johnson remains optimistic that the Westwood game could resurface, though the school hasn’t been as receptive as he’d like.

More importantly, Johnson said, is that he wants to shake off the two game region skid the Warriors are riding.

“We’d like to get back in a groove, and were looking at this weekend to do so,” he said.]
