Soddy-Daisy 10, Cleveland 1
SODDY-DAISY, Tenn. (WRCB) -- Both Cleveland and Soddy-Daisy made underdog runs through the District 5-AAA Tournament this week, but only one could join tourney champ Ooltewah in next week's regionals.
On Thursday, the magic ran out for the Blue Raiders.
Soddy-Daisy erupted for five runs in the second inning and never looked back while claiming a 10-1 win that clinched the district's second spot in next week's region bracket.
The Trojans, who finished the regular season with an 8-21 mark before going 3-1 in tourney play, will travel to Cookeville on Monday night. Coffee County visits Ooltewah in the other regional contest.
Cleveland's season ends at 17-19 overall.
Levi Thornton had three hits and drove in two runs to pace Soddy-Daisy's 14-hit attack, while Christian Amos and Cale Morgan added two hits apiece. Devan DeMatteo had just one hit but drove in three runs. Dillon Clift also drove in two.
The Trojans also took advantage of five Cleveland errors.
Amos tossed his second complete game of the tournament to earn the win. He struck out six and allowed the Blue Raiders' lone run on a solo homer in the fifth.

TUNNEL HILL, Ga. (WRCB) -- A quick turn-around led to a disappointing exit for Northwest Whitfield in the GHSA Class AAA state playoffs.
Two days after wrapping up a win in their rain-delayed first round series with Grady, the Bruins were swept by visiting Stephens County in a second-round doubleheader to bow out of the postseason.
The Indians claimed the first game 7-1 and out-slugged Northwest 16-14 in the nightcap to clinch the series and advance to next week's state quarterfinals at Crisp County.
