The Lady Warriors team is in the middle of a very busy string of days with 9 games over a 9 day period. Last Thursday North Cobb dropped a tough 2-0 game at Hillgrove. Although only managing 2 hits to the Lady Hawks, the Lady Warriors were in position to tie the game in the 7th but couldn't get the tying runs in from 2nd & 3rd base. The JV team was also in action at Hillgrove on Thursday also dropping a heartbreaking 5-4 decision in the last at-bat. JV score 2 in the top of the 6th but Hillgrove plated two runs of their own to take the victory. On Friday & Saturday, North Cobb participated in the Allatoona Buc Bash. The Lady Warriors on Friday lost an early lead to Etowah in an 8-7 defeat then tried to rally from a late 3-0 deficit to Columbus but came up short losing 3-1. On Saturday North Cobb bounced back with a big win over Seqouyah by an 8-2 score.

After Wednesday's JV game vs Cherokee at home, the Varsity & JV face off with Kennesaw Mountain on Thursday. Then the Varsity will head to St. Simons for the annual Softball in the Sand tournament. The Lady Warriors have 3 games over Friday & Saturday during the trip.

Lady Warrior Metro Blue With 2 Big Wins

Last Updated: August 31, 2016 8:31 AM

The North Cobb Metro Blue Lady Warriors are now 3-1 after a couple of key wins on the road as they took down a perennial power Pope on Sunday, and took down a tough Allatoona squad on Monday in an extra inning game.

On Sunday, North Cobb took the last of five lead changes in a back-and-forth affair against Pope, securing a 3-2 victory. They scored on an RBI single by Mackenzie Mathews, plating Bailey Brumley. But it was the defense on this day that won it. Behind stellar defense & Samantha Mathews on the mound, Pope had no answer for the Lady Warriors. Sam pitched a complete six inning game, allowing only one earned run off of three hits, three strikeouts, and just two walks. Sam took advantage of a great defense behind her, and there were some stellar performances out on the field. It was a complete team win on defense.

On Monday, North Cobb followed up the Pope win by outlasted Allatoona in a high-scoring extra inning affair. Emotions were high and the bats were busy, but when the dust cleared, North Cobb had a 13-10 win over Allatoona in five innings. The teams totaled 26 hits in the game and traded runs for most of the contest. North Cobb finally managed to grab the lead after a strong ITB fifth inning. A wild pitch scored Sydnee Wendel to give North Cobb the lead for good. Sydney Brown boosted her batting average thanks to a perfect 3-3 day at the plate to pace North Cobb, with two RBIs and a stolen base. Wendel got the win for North Cobb, with two strikeouts, four walks, and 10 hits.

North Cobb will be back in action with three back to back games starting on Saturday, September 10th at Walton, home on Sunday vs. Campbell, and then home on Monday vs Harrison.

Lady Warriors Drop 2 Extra Innings Games

Last Updated: August 25, 2016 11:32 AM

The North Cobb Lady Warriors lost two extra inning affairs last night at North Paulding HS. The Varsity rallied from a 5 run deficit to tie the game in the 7th to send it to ITB before losing 6-5 while the JV took a late 1-0 lead only to fall 2-1 also in ITB.

In the Varsity match-up, North Paulding pulled ahead with single runs in the 1st, 3rd, & 5th innings and then scored two more in the 6th to take a 5-0 lead heading into the 7th inning. North Cobb could only muster 1 hit over the first 6 innings before the bats woke up and the Lady Warriors put up 5 runs to tie the game in the top of the 7th. The inning started with back to back singles from
Hannah Bednarek
and Katherine Bywaters. Then the first of two costly errors by North Paulding and an RBI ground-out by
Julie Sanderlin
helped the Lady Warriors pull to within 5-2 with 2 outs.
Iman Muhammed
lined sharply into right field to drive in pinch runner Kennedy Kirklin to make it 5-3.
Angela Cecere
put down a terrific drag bunt single that the North Paulding catcher threw into the right field corner scoring both Muhammed & Cecere!
Samantha Simcox
, pitching in relief, shut the door on North Paulding in the 7th to force extra innings. Unfortunately North Cobb was unable to push across
Jasmine Copeland
, who started the inning at 2nd base, leaving the game tied going to the bottom of the 8th inning. North Paulding loaded the bases eventually and a sharp line drive single into centerfield brought home the winning run. Sanderlin, who started the game in the circle, got a no-decision going 5 1/3 walking none and striking out 2. Simcox took the loss giving up 3 hits in 2+ innings of relief.

The match-up of the JV teams earlier in the afternoon was a defensive battle with North Cobb taking a 1-0 lead in the top of the 7th on a single to right field by
Rayna Ezzell
, that broke up the North Paulding no-hitter. Then with 2 outs
Autaria Morgan
hit the left centerfield fence with a triple to drive in Ezzell for the first run of the game. Going to the bottom of the 7th,
Tessah McAllister
who pitched a brilliant game, got 2 quick outs before North Paulding strung together 3 straight hits to tie the game at 1 and send it to ITB. North Cobb failed to get Trinity Wilkinson, starting the top of the 8th inning running at 2nd base, while North Paulding's cleanup hitter ripped a double to left centerfield to drive home the winning run. McAllister took the loss but pitched well enough to win giving up 10 hits and striking out 2 while walking just 1.

Both Lady Warriors teams will be back in action on Thursday as North Cobb travels to region 3-AAAAAAA foe Hillgrove. The JV will play at 4:30pm with the Varsity following at 5:55pm. #GoWarriors

Season Kicks Off With A Bang!

Last Updated: August 05, 2016 1:34 PM

The North Cobb Fastpitch Lady Warriors kicked off the 2016-2017 season last night with a strong outing vs Campbell in a scrimmage game. In front of a great crowd, the Lady Warriors used all facets of the game, offense/pitching/defense/base-running, to pull away from an early 2-2 tie to win 16-5. The starters were able to offensively pull away from Campbell and everyone was able to get into the game and contribute to show what they can do. The defense was solid behind 3 different pitchers over the 6+ innings. The team thanks all the fans, including the JV & metro teams, for coming out and supporting them.
