TUPPERS PLAINS, — I guess you could say it was just a great night.

Eastern junior Grace Edwards tossed a no-hitter and struck out 11 batters Thursday night, but the exceptional Lady Eagle also got it done on offense, hitting a homerun and helping her team to a 2-0 victory over Tri-Valley Conference Hocking Division guest Southern.

The Lady Eagles (6-0, 3-0 TVC Hocking) broke through with a Jess Coleman double in the bottom of the second, for the game’s first hit. Hannah Hawley drove in Coleman with a two-out single, giving EHS the 1-0 advantage.

After three scoreless, hitless innings Grace Edwards hit a one-out, solo homerun to give the Green and Gold a little insurance. Southern (3-2, 3-1) reached base for the first time in the game in the top of the seventh, via error and base on balls, but failed to score and Eastern took the 2-0 triumph.

Grace Edwards was the winning pitcher with a complete game, no-hit, shutout, in which she allowed just one base on balls and struck out 11.

Despite surrendering just two runs, three hits and a walk in seven innings, Jordan Huddleston was the losing pitcher of record on the night.

Edwards led the EHS offense with a homerun and a stolen base, followed by Coleman with a double and a run scored and Hawley with an RBI single.

These teams will meet again on April 25, in Racine.
