Rain suspends Lanier Point tourney
By Jeff Hart Staff
GAINESVILLE -- Rain interrupted play at the 11th annual Lanier Point Tournament Friday.
Late showers forced the third set of games on the opening day of the two-day tournament to be rescheduled until 8 a.m. Saturday morning at the Lanier Point Softball Complex.
As a result, games originally scheduled for Saturday will now begin 90 mminutes later. The 8 a.m. games are now scheduled to begin at 9:30 with bracket play now set to begin at 2 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.
The finals are tentatively set to start at 9:30 p.m.
All but one team - West Hall - played at least one game before play was suspended. West Hall will now have to play six games on Saturday while most of the other teams will only have five games left to play.
Here are the results from Friday's action:
Commerce defeated Gainesville 5-0, Jefferson defeated Johns Creek 6-3, Flowery Branch routed North Hall 11-2 in four innings, White County defeated East Hall 6-1, Wesleyen defeated Dawson County 8-4 and Gilmer defeated Rabun County 6-2.
There were two other games still being played when play was stopped. Habersham Central was beating Fannin County 8-1 in the fourth inning and defending tournament champ Union County was beating White County 8-5.
