The Hawks kept their undefeated record in tact thanks in part to a four-hitter by pitcher Sabrina Curtiss (4 strikeouts).

Katie Smith did a good job on the mound for Marriotts Ridge, allowing just two earned runs and six hits, but was done in by a couple of bad innings. River Hill scored four in the third and two in the fourth.

In the third, Courtney Doyle singled, Meg Sterling walked and Kinsey Johnson singled to load the bases. Then a Mustangs’ error led to a run and Kristy Selby followed with double to right to plate a couple more.

The fourth inning for River Hill was highlighted by an RBI single from Doyle.

Howard 5, Mt Hebron 4 (9 innings)

It took a couple extra innings, but the Lions earned a key victory Monday over the Vikings thanks to a game-winning hit by Alli Jakubek. Jakubek delivered a single that scored Kayli Paugh, who had started the inning on second base.

In the top of the ninth, Jakubek had made a huge play at catcher to spoil a Mt. Hebron scoring chance. With a runner on third with one out, Jakubek threw out the runner on a potential squeeze play.

Courtney Merson was the winning pitcher for Howard in a complete-game effort, while Brittany Bryson (2 hits, double, 2 RBI to tie game in sixth), Jakubek (2 hits, RBI), Taylor McGrann (double) and Katie Wilkinson (RBI) were the offensive standouts for the Lions.

Mt. Hebron had scored four runs in the third inning to grab a 4-0 lead that held up until the bottom of the fifth.

Offensive standouts for the Vikings were Evvie Buehlman (double, RBI), Erin Vogan (two hits) and Aaliyah Montague-Bass (RBI).

Centennial 2, Reservoir 1

The Eagles bounced back from a couple of tough losses last week with a total team effort against the Gators at home. The game was 0-0 going into the sixth inning when the Gators got a couple runners on base and scored on a passed ball.

The score stayed 1-0 in favor of Reservoir until the seventh when Emily Bowman led off and got on base courtesy of an error. Emily Allen followed by getting hit by a pitch. After two straight outs, Sammy Kastner walked to load the bases.

That all set the stage for Josefine Jensen to deliver a walk-off single up the middle.

Bowman had a season-high of 10 strikeouts and allowed just one hit.

Anna Bennett had the lone hit for Reservoir.
