The loss propelled the Lady ’Dogs into the losers bracket where they were set to face Carrollton (19-11) on Tuesday, October 14 (results of that game will be in the next edition of The Cedartown Standard). If the Lady ’Dogs were to beat Carrollton they would play the Central-Carroll/Cass loser with the winner of that game being guaranteed one of the top four spots in the region, and a automatic bid to go to the State Sectionals.
