    Bats send Turner to state in Class 2A
    BURNEYVILLE — The runs of the district round were nowhere to be found through two games for Turner.
    Then the rematch game came. Facing elimination, Turner throttled Chattanooga 13-1 to advance to the Class 2A state tournament as regional consolation champion.
    Senior Conner Harmon was 2-for-3 with a home run and three RBIs to pace Turner (27-5). The Falcons scored more runs in the first two innings against Chattanooga in the consolation final than they did in the first two ball games of the regional.
    "We finally started hitting the ball," Turner coach Shane Hill said. "We're always going to play good defense it seems like, but Harmon finally unleashed on them.
    "In the (last) game, we finally started stringing hits together."
    In the first inning, McGill had a base hit and Harmon connected for a home run. The Falcons had four more hits in the next five at-bats.
    "I kinda challenged them to step up," Hill said. "They took a different approach at the plate, to not try to hit home runs and hit some gaps. They did and that's the difference."
    Turner won 3-2 against Chattanooga in Game 1, then lost to Soper 8-3 to send Soper to state as the regional champion.
    Soper beat Fort Cobb-Broxton 13-7, and Chattanooga beat Fort Cobb 9-2 to set up the first game rematch against Turner.
    The Falcons didn't miss in the second game. Andi McGill was 4-for-4 with two doubles, Taylor Foster was 3-for-4 with two doubles and an RBI and Perri McGill and Kylie O'Dell each went 3-for-4.
    Emily Hawthorne, Bree Hallum and Allie Foster each had two hits, Allie Foster drove in two runs and Turner scored in every inning but the third.
    "You've got to string together three or four hits in an inning," Hill said. "That's what we were able to do this game instead of the first game."
