GUYTON -- Sparked by Alex Brown at the top of their order, the South Effingham Lady Mustangs swept Bradwell Institute 16-1 and 10-2 in a softball doubleheader Thursday.

Brown, a senior shortstop, delivered four hits, four RBI and four runs scored in her stellar day at the plate.

In the first game, Mattie Turner matched Brown's three-hit effort. Chloe Turner and Sarah Messex added two hits apiece.

Bailey Kendziorski was the winning pitcher. She allowed three hits and fanned seven in a contest that ended after four innings because of the mercy rule.

In the second game, Kiley Hale paced South Effingham (17-2-1, 9-1 in Region 2-AAAAAA) with three hits,  three RBI and three runs scored. Elizabeth Crafton added three hits and two RBI.

Chloe and Mattie Turner also chipped in two hits each.

Haleigh Maruca and Kendziorski split the duties on the mound.

The Lady Tigers slipped to 1-7 overall and 1-7 in the region.
