Northwest Rankin sweeps Warren Central from playoffs

Published 12:05 pm Wednesday, October 6, 2010

It took Northwest Rankin just 45 minutes to go one up in its best-of-three playoff series with Warren Central.

It took another 45 minutes for the Lady Cougars (17-8) to finish off the Lady Vikes and move on to the second round of the Class 6A slow-pitch playoffs. Northwest swept WC 10-0 and 11-0, with both games ending in the fifth inning by run rule. The losses end WC’s season at 9-17.

Lady Vikes coach Dana McGivney was not happy with how poorly her team played in the first-round series, and at home, no less. WC made four errors in the first two innings of Game 1 and had no runs and just eight hits in the two games overall.
