Lassiter pulled off a successful squeeze play in the eighth inning, giving it a 6-5 win at Allatoona and capping off a perfect Saturday.
The Lady Trojans were coming off a 4-0 shutout of Harrison.
The Allatoona game was deadlocked at 5-all entering the eighth, when Lassiter’s Abby Ferrier was placed on second base. She moved to third on a grounder before scoring as she ran on contact from Emily Syvarth’s well-placed bunt.
Kelly Sinclair and Catherine Pizza each went 2-for-4, with Pizza contributing a pair of RBIs. Jesse Beasenburg also had two RBIs.
Brianna Michaud pitched 6 2/3 innings of effective relief, striking out 10.
Sydney Kayler and Piper Wagner combined for the shutout of Harrison, fueled by Sinclair’s two RBIs and two hits apiece for Syvarth and Maggie Aarons.
Lassiter (3-0) will continue non-region play Tuesday, hosting Brookwood.
