Thanks to a big upset on the other side of the bracket, the John Milledge Academy softball team gets to host their GISA AAA state semifinal this weekend.
The third-seeded Lady Trojans will take on No. 7-seed Trinity Christian in a best-of-three series Saturday to determine who advances to the state championship round. Game 1 is scheduled for 11 a.m. with game 2 set for 1 p.m. Game 3 will be played Monday if there is a split.
JMA swept Southland 11-1 and 15-3 last weekend to advance to the semis.
Trinity defeated second-seeded Tiftarea Academy 2-1 in their series that was completed Tuesday. Trinity took game 1 by a 3-1 score, lost the second game 16-1, then bounced back to take the series and advance in the deciding game 3, 4-1.
John Milledge and Trinity met on the diamond only once this season, and that was all the way back on Aug. 6. The Lady Crusaders of Dublin won that contest 2-1.
