By D.N. PENNELL, Jr.
The Alexander Central Lady Cougars rallied from an early 2-0 deficit to take an 10-2 win over the Porter Ridge Pirates in the fourth round of the NCHSAA 4A State Softball Playoffs on Wednesday afternoon, May 22, in Indian Trail.
Kiana Millsaps took the mound win to improve to 20-0 on the year.
Millsaps, Taylor Wike, and Bailey Rhoney had two hits each. Wike blasted a two-run homer.
With the win, ACHS gained a bit of revenge for a playoff loss to the Pirates in 2012 and the Cougars move into a best-of-three series against SE Guilford to determine a Western Regional Champion.
The Lady Cougars (29-1) are slated to host SE Guilford in game one of the three-game series on Thursday, May 23, at 6 pm at Central Park in Taylorsville.
