SPRINGFIELD -- The threat of Hurricane Michael has prompted Effingham County to change the date and times of its opening-round Class AAAAAA softball playoff games.

The Lady Rebels will host Lakeside-Evans at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Tuesday instead of 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. Thursday as originally planned.

The date for a third game, if necessary, hasn't been announced.

The 19-7 Lady Rebels won the Region 2-AAAAAA title last week, beating Richmond Hill 1-0 and 9-0.
