THOMASVILLE -- Tiftarea took advantage of its opportunities. Brookwood could not.

In a matchup of GISA rivals, the Panthers capitalized on six walks and three hitbatsmen by Warriors' pitcher Rann Day, to win 3-1.

The Warriors, on the other hand, stranded six runners on base, had a runner thrown out at the plate and popped into a double play, attempting to lay down a sacrifice bunt.

The game appeared bleak for the Warriors in the first inning, following a leadoff triple by Chris Qualheim and a walk to Pace Calloway. The Warriors failed to drive in the run, however, as Panthers' pitcher Brian Ellis got a ground out, strikeout and pop out. Ellis allowed just five hits, three to Qualheim, in seven innings, while striking out seven.

Brookwood's only run came in the third inning, on a throwing error by Tiftarea that allowed Qualheim to score.

The Panthers scored their runs in the first, third and fourth innings.

One came on a throwing error, one on an RBI triple by Caleb Latham and the other on a wild pitch.
