Davis threw a three-hitter and struck out 15 batters as Cherokee County won 4-0 to advance to the second round.
The second-ranked Warriors (40-7) will play third-ranked Haleyville (42-12) later Thursday.
Cherokee County’s first two runs came from a aggressive base running after Darbie Rosser scored in the first when pinch runner Summer Smith attempted to steal second, Oak Grove catcher Jaina Walden called Smith’s bluff and threw down. While Smith slid under the tag, Rosser sprinted home, scoring easily.
Rosser was at it again the fifth inning, hitting a two-run home run after Jessen Burk singled, stole second and scored on an infield single by Molly Brewer.
Rosser led the team offensively with two hits, two runs and two RBI. Madison Millsaps, Kayle Moon, Davis and Burk each had a hit as well.
Cherokee County’s next opponent, Haleyville, defeated the Warriors in the state championship last season.
