Bleckley ties with Perry in International City Brawl pool play game.

Bleckley ties with Perry in International City Brawl pool play game.

Lana Maddox hit a first inning two-run home run in the top of the first at Perry Wednesday.  The Lady Panthers tied in their half of the inning.   Bleckley worked their way out of a bases loaded, one out jam in the bottom of the second but would be unable to capitalize on having three runners in the scoring position in the fifth and sixth.  Pool play games in the International City Brawl have a 75-minute time limit.  So Wednesday's contest ended in a 2-2 tie.  Marlee Bryan allowed one hit over the final four innings and went 1 for 2 with a sacrifice bunt.  Kelsey Darsey was 1 for 2.  Pool play resumes Friday when the Lady Royals take on Thomas County Central and Colquitt County in Perry.  Game times are 4 and 5:30 pm.
