A roundup of Monday's action at the Dixie Ponytails World Series at Oscar J. Frazier Park in Bluffton:

Rockingham West (N.C.) 7, Columbia County (Ga.) 6: Taylor Graves beat the throw home in the bottom of the sixth inning to send North Carolina to a thrilling walk-off victory over Georgia.

Graves led off the final frame with a single, moved to second on a sacrifice bunt and then stole third. She then came home on Alyssa Seabolt's grounder to second base, sealing North Carolina's comeback victory.

Georgia had taken a 6-5 edge thanks to Macie Widener's go-ahead RBI single in the fifth after the team scored a pair of runs on wild pitches an inning earlier to pull even at five apiece.

But North Carolina tied things up in the bottom half of the frame on a controversial call, as umpires ruled the tying run had crossed home plate before runners interference ended the inning. That set the stage for Graves' heroics an inning later, which eliminated Georgia in the process.

Hanahan (S.C.) vs. Wewahitchka (Fla.), ppd.

The teams were scoreless in the second inning when the game was postponed due to Monday's storms. Action will resume at 10 a.m. Tuesday.
