CHESAPEAKE — Melanie Noble found out that practice makes perfect.

Maybe not perfect, but close enough.

Noble’s extra work paid off as she pitched a two-hitter and the Chesapeake Lady Panthers blanked the South Point Lady Pointers 2-0 Friday in an Ohio Valley Conference game.

Noble struck out four and walked one in going the distance.

“She threw very well. She just located the ball well. We’ve been working on that and she’s really worked hard at that and she stayed down in the zone,” said Chesapeake coach Aaron Rice.

Chesapeake (2-3, 1-2) scored the only runs of the game in the second inning.

Noble led off the inning with a single. Breanna Skeens singled with one out to score courtesy runner Robin Frye and Skeens went to second when the ball was bobbled in the outfield. Alyssa Scott then singled to score Skeens.

Haley Rawlns and Bonnie Hileman had the only hits for South Point (3-2, 2-1).

Kaitlyn Brown took the loss. She gave up just five hits, struck out one and walked one.
