The Newnan Times-Herald

The Newnan Cougars used some eighth-inning drama Tuesday night at home to defeat Wheeler 3-2 in a Region 2 7A contest.

Austin Roberts singled home Jett Lovett with two outs in the eighth to give the Cougars the walk-off victory.

Wheeler enjoyed a 2-0 lead early in the contest before the Cougars scored twice in the bottom of the fourth.

The game remained scoreless until the Cougars produced their walk-off eighth inning fireworks.

Seth Bruce had two RBIs for the Cougars.

Hunter Keith had four strikeouts and Lovett two.
