SOFTBALL: Lauren McIntyre scattered three hits as Lee-Davis took advantage of Patrick Henry defensive miscues to win their Central Region quarterfinal matchup, 5-1 Tuesday night in Ashland.

The Confederates advance to a rematch with defending state champion Cosby, who defeated Matoaca 9-4. Lee-Davis handed Cosby their only loss of 2013, 8-2, three weeks ago in Chesterfield.  The semifinal will be Thursday, 5pm, at Lee-Davis, as they are hosting this year's tournament.  The Confederates will be the "visiting" team.

Atlee advanced in the other bracket, easily handling Mills Godwin 11-2, as Mattie Fitzgerald had two hits in spite of a broken cheekbone and Jessica Holte had two hits, two runs, and nine strikeouts in the circle. The Raiders will play Manchester, 4-0 winners over Dinwiddie Tuesday, in the Thursday 7pm semifinal at Lee-Davis.

Patrick Henry's 15-game winning streak, and season, come to an end at a mark of 18-3.

SOCCER: A disappointing end to the season tonight for both the Atlee boys and girls as both fall at home to Colonial District opponents in Central Region quarterfinal action.

The girls fell 1-0 to Douglas Freeman. Blair Mickel scored in the 10th minute and the Rebels shut out the Raiders to make it the game-winner.  Meanwhile, the boys team battled Deep Run to a 2-2 draw, forcing penalty kicks. The Wildcats nipped Atlee in PK's, 5-4 to take a 3-2 victory, ending the Atlee season.
