Social Circle forces decisive game three with 4-2 win over Kings Ridge

On Monday, the Georgia High School Association baseball state championship tournament resumed with the Kings Ridge Tigers hosted the Social Circle Redskins in Class 1A Division 1 action. The Tigers would convincingly take game one in the best of three series as they picked a 10-0 win, however, the Redskins would bounce back in game two, picking up a 4-2 victory and forcing a decisive game three set four Tuesday.


“I think it’s just moving on to the next play. That first game didn’t go how we wanted it to and we gave them two choices, they could either lay down and except their fate or they could fight back and get it to a game three,” Social Circle head coach, Kevin Dawkins said after the Redskins game two win, explaining how he and his coaching staff challenged their players after dropping game one. Dawkins added that he had to remind his players of past adversities in which they found themselves having to battle from behind and eventually landed in the semifinals.


“Take inspiration and that as an example of you don’t have to win the first one, go win the second and then go win the third and make a run,” Dawkins said he told his players. Meanwhile, the Tigers message from head coach Mike Power after the game two loss was quite simple. “We had a good one and a bad one,” Power said adding that ultimately he feels good about the Tigers’ chances heading into game three. “We have our number one pitcher going tomorrow, he didn’t throw today, we’ve been swinging the bats well, I feel good about where we’re at,” Power added.


Game three will take place on Tuesday at 4pm at American Legion Field in Alpharetta.
