The Midway Lady Green Waves won their third consecutive District 3-A regular season championship following a 7-0 win over Harriman Thursday at Midway.

Midway will now be the No. 1 seed in the upcoming District 3-A Tournament while the Lady Devils will be the No. 2 seed.

Midway pitcher Hannah Colyer threw her second shutout against Harriman, but did not get the no-hitter this time like she did in the first game. Colyer allowed five hits, three of the five were bunt singles or infield hits, and walked two. She again piled up 13 strike-outs against the Lady Devils.

Harriman pitcher Kayla Turner gave up only seven hits to Midway, but fell victim to four Harriman errors that allowed six of the seven Midway runs to score. Turner walked only two, but hit three batters. She had seven strikeouts.

The first Harriman hit came very early when Moriah Anderson laid down a bunt single in the first at bat of the game. Anderson tried to steal second and was cut down while Whitney Goldston drew a walk.

After the early Harriman rally, they were able to put together only one more rally when Turner and Kayla Pressley slapped back-to-back singles in the fourth inning. But with two outs, Jasmine Fuqua bounced out to end the inning.

Lindsay Daugherty got a bunt single in the fifth and Turner beat out an infield single in the sixth for the last Lady Devil hits of the game.

Midway had a difficult time getting control of the game. They pushed in two runs in the third and then two more in the fifth. They finally broke loose for three runs in the sixth to get the 7-0 lead.

Taylor Narramore led off the third inning by getting hit by a pitch. Alex Coffman singled then Lacey Davidson flew out to right field, but two Harriman throwing errors on the play allowed both runs to score.

In the fifth inning, Davidson walked with one out. Colyer reached on an error on the put out attempt. After the second out, Michelle Walden slapped a single to drive in both runners.

With the game still hanging in the balance, Midway scored three runs in the sixth to help settle some of the dust.

Haley parks doubled to lead off the inning then Krystal Rue reached on an error. Narramore singled to drive home Parks. Coffman bounced out, but drove in Rue from third then Davidson hammered a double to easily score Narramore.
