SNELLVILLE — For the second playoff series in row, a team from Gwinnett saw its season end at the hands of Etowah.
This time it was Brookwood, which fell 3-1 to the Eagles on Thursday night in Game 3 of the Class AAAAAAA state quarterfinals at the Dave Hunter Complex.
Etowah pitcher Andrew Keene, who no-hit Mountain View in five innings to win its second-round series, was also the winner against Brookwood, going six strong innings with one run on six hits with three walks and seven strikeouts.
The win sends the fourth seed from Region 4-AAAAAAA to the semifinals where it will be at Mill Creek, while Brookwood, the champs of Region 7-AAAAAAA, ends its year at 29-8.
LAWRENCEVILLE — Mountain View simply had no answer for the one-man wrecking crew that was Andrew Keene in Game 3 of its second-round Class AAAAAAA state playoff series with Etowah.
The senior right-hander threw a five-inning no-hitter with nine strikeouts and belted two home runs with eight RBIs at the plate to help the Eagles win the series with a 10-0 victory Saturday at the Top of the Mountain.
“He was pretty impressive, obviously,” Mountain View coach Jason Johnson said after Keene helped end the Bears’ season at 19-17. “He swung the bat real well, to say the least. And we just couldn’t get anything going offensively. It was just a tough day for us.”

The East Coweta Indians certainly had their chances at home Saturday in the deciding contest in a three-game series with Etowah to open the Class AAAAAAA playoffs.
In the end, head coach Franklin DeLoach’s team dropped a heartbreaking 5-2 decision in eight innings.
A 1-1 tie at the end of seven sent the game into extra innings, and Etowah broke open the game with four runs in the top of the eighth.
Drew Waters belted a three-run homer and and teammate Weston Campbell had a solo homer for Etowah.
Ryan Dyal tried to keep the Indians in the game with a solo home run in the bottom of the eighth, but it wasn’t enough.
Saturday’s game was needed after the two teams split in Friday’s action.
Etowah won the first game 5-3, but the Indians kept the series alive with a 15-1 victory in the second contest in a game called after six innings.
On Saturday, neither team was able to score until the bottom of the sixth, when the Indians pushed the first run of the game across the plate.
Senior leadoff hitter Devonte Brown ripped a triple to start the inning and scored Emilio Morales, who had reached on a single.
Etowah tied the game in the top of the seventh when pitcher Andrew Keene reached on a base hit and scored on Jackson Sisk’s double.
