After defeating Deerfield, the Tattnall Trojans will need to knock off Southland this weekend for a date in the AAA baseball Championship series.

Thursday the guys had an early practice where they scrimmaged against one another.

Head Coach Joey Hiller says his guys have looked sharp the last few days.

He also added Southland is going to be tougher because they did better in the region than Deerfield. This is a special run for the Trojans because they've won the state trophy two years in a row. They would go down in the history books with another consecutive Championship cup.

"Three in a row is tough and we've had a couple of opportunities to do that and haven't gotten it done, it hasn't been done since the mid-Eighties when Stratford did it," Hiller explained. "So that's a big challenge for us and we've been looking forward to that challenge and talking about it all year."

Tattnall and Southland will play two on Saturday starting at noon. A third game, if necessary, would be played on Monday.
In the other semi-final, Stratford plays Tiftarea Friday in Tifton. First game gets underway at 4:30.
