Warner Robins has a lot of work to do if it wants to win a state fastpitch softball championship.
The Demonettes lost their first game of the GHSA Class AAAAA Elite Eight in Columbus 1-0 to Peachtree Ridge. Warner Robins had a chance to score in the fifth inning when it had the bases loaded. But the Demonettes had two outs and couldn't push a run across.
The Lions loaded the bases with no outs in the bottom of the sixth, but Warner Robins held them to one run.
The Demonettes were retired in order in the top of the seventh.
Warner Robins (25-11) will play East Coweta at 9 a.m. Friday morning in an elimination game.
