Wednesday, April 04, 2001

LLOYD, Ky. – Forget about scoring. How about just getting a hit off Tara Layne.

Layne fired a one-hitter Tuesday as the South Point Lady Pointers blanked the Greenup County Lady Musketeers 4-0.

Layne has now thrown two no-hitters and a three one-hitters. The only game she did not pitch, Allison Perdue hurled a no-hitter.

Layne struck out 12 and did not walk a batter as she improved to 5-0 on the season. The only hit Layne allowed was a bloop single in the second inning.

South Point broke the scoreless deadlock with a run in the fifth when Perdue doubled, stole third, and scored on a passed ball.

The Lady Pointers upped the lead to 4-0 in the sixth.

Sarah Baise doubled, Layne singled, and then Perdue cranked a three-run homer over the fence in left.

Baise, Layne, and Perdue all went 2-for-3.

South Point, 6-0, hosts Chesapeake at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday.

ONA, W.Va. – Alisha Shull singled home the winning run to right field over the head of a drawn-in outfield in the bottom of the ninth to give Cabell Midland a 4-3 win over the Chesapeake Lady Panthers Tuesday.

Chesapeake started the scoring with a run in the third when Emily Delimpo walked, stole second and third, and scored on an error.

Midland tied the game wit a run in the fourth when Shannon Wood doubled and scored on a two-out error.

Delimpo, who went 2-for-2, doubled to start the fifth and scored on an error for a 2-1 lead.

The Lady Panthers regained the lead in the sixth when Jessica Rice singled, moved up on a sacrifice, took third on an error, and scored on a sacrifice fly by Kristin Thacker.

Childers doubled to start the seventh and scored on a fielder’s choice as Midland tied the game in the bottom of the seventh to force extra innings.
