FRANKLIN FURNACE — Micah Lewis took it easy and made hitting very hard for the Symmes Valley Lady Vikings.

Lewis fired a no-hitter as the Green Lady Bobcats posted a 10-0 five-inning Southern Ohio Conference win on Wednesday.

“Micah pitched really well. She throws hard but she tries to be too perfect sometimes. Tonight she just relaxed,” said Green coach Dale Royse.

Lewis struck out 11 and walked only one as she got her first career no-hitter.

Green (11-13, 7-5) got the only run it needed in the first inning when Lewis singled, moved up on a passed ball and scored on Jenna Crawford’s base hit.

Kayla McCallister walked, Krashawna Jones singled, Rayna Boggs walked and Lewis had a two-run single as the lead went to 3-0 in the second.

The Lady Bobcats got three in the third. Crawford walked, Erin Imes reached on an error, Boggs walked for a run and Cline had a two-run single.

The lead went to 9-0 in the fourth.

Imes singled, McCallister and Jones reached on errors for two runs and Emma Salisbury had an RBI single.

The game ended in the fifth when Lewis walked, stole second and came home on a throwing error.

Lewis was 2-2 as Green had seven hits.
