***EDITOR'S NOTE: Apologies go out to all the Southwest Georgia high school and college teams that called in their results Friday night to The Herald. Unfortunately, all the call-ins and roundups that were taken over the telephone were saved into a file that wound up being corrupted and ultimately -- and inexplicably -- deleted at the end of the evening when it was being saved for the final time. Only two games were managed to be salvaged -- Sherwood baseball's loss on the road to Mount de Sales and Baconton Charter's win against Terrell County. Of course, by the time this error was realized, it was nearly midnight Friday and far too late to follow back up with any of the diligent coaches who called to report their scores.To all those coaches and teams that The Herald's sports staff spoke to Friday night, if you could please call us today at (229) 888-9306 to give us the information for a second time, we will be happy to run the roundup a day later in Sunday's edition. Again, apologies to everyone for this rare mishap.

MACON -- Sherwood Christian Academy, which was coming off an emotional 9-8 victory against Southland Thursday, lost its first game of the season Friday, falling to Mount de Sales, 6-1.

The good news is that Zane Hood, who was hit in the face with a line drive while pitching in Thursday's victory, made the trip to Macon.

"He was a lot of support,'' SCA coach Alan McWilliams said. "We just couldn't get the bats going. We dug ourselves in too big of a hole.''

SCA (2-1) used two pitchers. Robert Wilson, who had the game-winning hit Thursday, went two innings and Adam Snyder pitched four scoreless innings in relief. SCA ran into trouble in the second when three walks and an error opened up a six-run inning for Mount de Sales. Sherwood came back with its only run in the fourth when Josh Holwick doubled in a run.



BACONTON -- The Baconton Charter Blazers baseball team improved to 8-2 overall Friday with a 15-0, four-inning rout of Terrell County, which managed only two hits against winning pitcher Bo Tipler, who allowed no runs in just two innings of work.

Tipler also was hot from the plate, going 3-for-3 with three runs scored.

But the big highlight of the day belonged to Douglas Nobles, who blasted a home run and finished 2-for-3 with two runs scored.

Chance Tompkins notched a double and an RBI, and Tyler Neeld contributed one hit, while scoring three runs.

Also, Brock Pinson -- who had been hitless on the year -- broke out of his slump in a major way, going a perfect 3-for-3 in the win.

One of Terrell County's two hits came from Greenwave star basketball player Brian Browner.

Baconton gets back on the field Monday against Worth County, while Terrell County next faces Pelham on Monday.
