UPDATE: Louisiana sends NC Angels home

A bounce off the glove of North Carolina first baseman Gracie Spivey allowed a South Carolina player safe passage to first base during Sunday’s second round World Series game in Carthage. Spivey enjoyed redemption soon after, as the ball bounced from the glove of an SC defender at first base. (Deuce Niven photos)

Tuesday post
    Scoring first in the fourth found of the Dixie Girls Softball Angels X-Play World Series in Carthage was not enough for the North Carolina State Champions South Columbus Angels (ages 9-10).
    Louisiana came back with four runs in the fourth inning, another in the top of the fifth for a 5-1 win, sending the North Carolina girls back to Tabor City with their second loss in the double-elimination tournament.
    Louisiana will play Alabama for the World Series title Wednesday.

Monday post
    A strong Alabama team handed the North Carolina State Champions South Columbus Angels (ages 9-10) their first defeat in the Dixie Girls Softball Angels X-Play World Series in Carthage Monday.
    North Carolina will face Louisiana at 2 p.m. Tuesday, in a loser’s bracket match that will send one of the teams home.
    Alabama, claiming a 14-0 win over Mississippi on Sunday, scored once in the second inning, two more in the third on the way to a 4-0 victory over the South Columbus based team.
    North Carolina could face Alabama again.
    Alabama plays the South Carolina team North Carolina defeated Sunday. A win by Alabama, and by North Carolina over Louisiana, would set up an NC-Alabama rematch at 2 p.m. Wednesday. A win by Alabama there would end the tournament, while a win by North Carolina would force a 4:30 p.m. game to decide the champion.

Sunday post
    Three runs in the bottom of the second inning was all the advantage the North Carolina State Champions South Columbus Angels (ages 9-10) needed on the way to a 4-1 victory over South Carolina in the second round of the 2015 Dixie Girls Softball Angels X-Play World Series in Carthage Sunday.
    A series of pitching errors from the Aynor area based South Carolina champions left some South Columbus based NC All-Stars with bruises and free base hits in a game with some real defensive drama.
    North Carolina moves on to the third with a 4 p.m. game Monday, taking on Alabama on the heels of its 14-0 win over Mississippi Sunday night.
