Tigers in must-win situation with Panthers
By Michael Butler
After last week's pivotal area sweep by Holtville over Tallassee, the Tigers need a victory against Elmore County to punch their ticket for the playoffs.
Holtville swept THS 4-2 in Tallassee on Thursday and 5-0 in Holtville on Friday. The Bulldogs have had a stellar season with a 22-5 record garnering a No. 6 ranking in the latest Alabama Sports Writers Association Class 4A poll.
Holtville leads the Class 4A/Area 5 standings with a perfect 6-0 record. Tallassee is second at 2-2 with a sweep of Dadeville included. Dadeville is 2-4. Elmore County is winless at 0-4 in area action.
One win in this week's series in Tallassee and Eclectic would clinch the Tigers' fourth straight post-season berth.
Game one of the series will be on Wednesday, April 11 at 4:30 and will be broadcast on 1300 WTLS/106.5 FM with an airtime of 4:00. Thursday's doubleheader in Eclectic starts at 4:30.
