Columbia vs Gainesville softball 


2017 7A regional semifinals 





Heading into this game Columbia was coming off a win over Creekside who had ended their season back in 2014. Gainesville was coming off defeating Bartram Trail 


During the season Columbia lost to Gainesville at home but then defeated Gainesville on the road and in the district championship held in Middleburg which had Columbia with a 2-1 edge heading into this game 


Columbia however was eliminated from the playoffs in the same round in 2016 and was the only team to score a run on Gainesville during their playoff road to winning state






Columbia fell behind 6-0 and would stay behind 6-0 before scoring 4 runs in the 5th to make it 6-4 trailing and another in 6th to make it 6-5


Gainesville would load bases in top of 7th and get a run to make lead 7-5 heading into bottom of 7th


With 2 outs Columbia would get a 2rbi triple to tie the game and a wild pitch would lead to runner on third scoring a walk off steal of home plate



Definitely a game worth watching if you haven't already

    • Only 4 FL HS teams have won a single FHSAA state football title and failed to win at least 10 playoff games in their school histories.  Blake(3 p/o wins)-After traveling to Columbia and winning in the semis, Blake went on to defeat Leesburg to win the Class A title in 1969.  Has appeared only once in the playoffs in the past 50 years, losing 31-0 to Crystal River in the first round in 2000.   Westminster Academy/Fort Lauderdale(6 p/o wins)-Led by hs qb phenom Danny Kannell(who went on to qb at FSU), won 6 playoff games between 1989-1991.  Won the 1990 Class A title in 1990, defeating University Christian 6-3 in one of the lowest-scoring title games in FHSAA history.  In 1991, UC returned the favor, defeating WA in the title game.  WA has not won a playoff game since, and has only appeared 3 times (97, 99 and 01). Cardinal Mooney(9 p/o wins)-Won the Class A title in 1972, winning 18-13 at Wewahitchka.  Since then, CM is 7-15 in playoff games and has never advanced past the third round.  After winning their title, it took them 27 years to win another playoff game.   Hollywood Hills(9 p/o wins)-South FL coaching legend Dick Saltrick led the Spartans to the 1973 Class 4A title with a win over Raines.  HH traveled to Orlando and beat Edgewater in the semis.  Since then, HH is 5-13 in playoff games and has never advanced past the second round.   The Spartans have only won 2 playoff games in the past 25 years.    ...some others worth mentioning: Northview-1 title(2012) and 10 playoff wins Miami Edison-1 title (1970) and 11 playoff wins Chiefland-1 title (1997) and 11 playoff wins    
    • ...a little off-season fun here.  A number of FL hs teams have a color in their school or mascot name.  For example, in college we have the Duke Blue Devils and the Bowling Green Falcons. Can you think of any such high schools in FL?  There are quite a few.
    • Not sure if Cocoa is right now, but they will after this next draft that's for sure.
