Moore threw 94 pitches of which 79 were strikes.

Kaleigh Murphy threw well in a losing effort. In 6 innings of work, Murphy gave up 8 hits, 5 earned runs, struck out 8 and walked 4.

Ironton (10-2, 7-1) took a 3-0 lead in the first inning keyed by Bella Sorbilli’s 2-run double.

Sorbilli was 2-3 with the double and 2 RBI. Emily Weber went 1-4, Graycie Brammer, Katelyn Moore and Keegan Moore 1-3, Aubrey Ferguson 1-2 and an RBI and Braylin Wallace 1-2 with a double.
