In a rematch of the Region 4-AA semi-finals from a year ago, the DeKalb County Tigerette fast-pitch softball team returned the favor to the District 7-AA runner-up. The Greenbrier Lady Bobcats pitched an 8-0 shutout of the Tigerettes a year ago, but DC got the best of the re-match, winning 5-2, Monday in Smithville, to advance to the Region 4-AA Tournament final for the first time since the 2001 season.
The game was scoreless through three innings, but Greenbrier struck first with a run in the top of the fourth inning on an RBI single by Jordan Rehl. The Tigerettes fired back with four runs on four hits in the bottom of the fourth. Kristina Stephens and Morgan Page led off the inning with back-to-back singles, and Sarah West followed with an RBI double. Shay Sullivan scored Page on a fielder's choice, and Brittney Armour drove two more runs in with a triple.
