(WSAV) — A pair of women’s basketball games with regular-season regional title implications unfolded Tuesday night.

Brunswick earned the highest ranking in its Class 6A region with a 51-41 win over Statesboro. The Pirates entered the day one game ahead of Statesboro, but could have been forced to settle for a tie with a loss in their final regular season game. Instead, the Pirates will be the undisputed number one seed when their regional tournament begins next week.

The Screven County women’s team captured a regional title with a 50-47 road win over Claxton. Both teams suffered just one loss on the day. Although Screven County still has one game left in its regular season, they have now beaten the Tigers twice, giving them the tiebreaker advantage.

Tamyia Taylor led the way for the Gamecocks with 18 points, followed by Asia Roberson with 12. Azaria Goethe led Claxton with 11 points.
