Sadie Perkins went the distance for the win as she allowed 4 earned runs, struck out 6 and did not walk a batter.

The Lady Panthers had their second big offensive performance after beating South Point 14-10 on Monday.

“Our offense was patient and worked the counts. Overall, it was a great job on the road.”

The Lady Panthers will stay on the road as they visit Wheelersburg at 5 p.m. Thursday in the sectional finals.
