Two times Thursday, the Thomas County Central Lady Jackets softball team staved off elimination, fighting their way to a winner-take-all championship game against top-seeded Harris County.
However, the offense ran out of gas against the Tigers, falling 4-0.
TCC earns a small consolation prize though: a home state playoff series as the region's #2 seed.
Earlier Thursday, the Lady Jackets knocked off Lee County in an elimination game.
Then, TCC defeated Harris County to force a second game.
Lee County will serve as the region's third seed in the state playoffs. Northside, Columbus is the four-seed.
