The East Coweta Indians held the Campbell Spartans to just one hit, but had trouble with their own timely offense.

Caleb Cashion’s RBI in the bottom of the eighth inning gave the Indians the region win.

East Coweta finished the game with eight hits.

He also drove in the Indians’ first run of the game in the bottom of the fourth.

That RBI tied the game at 1-all.
