CHESAPEAKE — One definition for noble is “impressive in quality or appearance.”

Melanie Noble lived up to that definition as she pitched a three-hitter to lead the Chesapeake Lady Panthers to an 8-0 shutout of the Tolsia Lady Rebels on Friday.

Noble struck out six and did not walk a batter to get the win.

“Noble pitched a nice game. The big key was walks. She didn’t put anyone on. She made them hit the ball and we played good defense,” said Chesapeake coach Aaron Rice.

After a scoreless first inning, Chesapeake’s offense ignited with a six-run second.

Ali Ransbottom reached on an error, Noble had an RBI double and Sydnee Hall tripled in a run.

Carrie Brock singled in a run, Laura Rice singled and Kelsey Huff had a two-run single. Macy Allen capped the rally with a run-scoring single.

Two more runs scored in the fourth. Huff and Allen singled and an outfield error scored a run. Ransbottom grounded out as the final run scored.

Chesapeake had 11 hits with Hall going 2-2, Huff and Noble 2-3 and Allen 2-4.
