North East pitcher Morgan Sargent set down the first 14 batters she faced, eight by strikeout. Meanwhile, it was Sargent that also put her team ahead with a run in the second inning.

Madison Husfelt roped a one-out double and with two away, Sargent singled her in.

The Indians added another run in the third. Abby Riley reached on an error and raced to third on a sacrifice bunt by Alesia Doctor.

Delaney McDilda, who went 3-3 with three RBIs, plated Riley with a single.

In the fifth, North East scored twice more to build up a 4-0 lead. Aubrey Runyons (2-3) doubled and scored on a Doctor sacrifice fly. Jess Choplinsky singled in McDilda with the fourth run.

In the bottom of the fifth, Havre de Grace freshman Natiah Turner singled with two outs to break up the no-hit bid of Sargent.

“I noticed she was throwing rise balls, so I got on top of it and just swung,” Turner said.

Emily Wolf then walked and with Katy Brooks at the plate, an errant pickoff throw to first went up the fence line. Turner scored easily from second and Wolf slid safely into third.

Brooks eventually walked as well, but Sargent, who struck out 11 in the win, struck out the next batter to end the inning.

Sargent then retired the final six batters in order, while North East pushed across three more runs in the sixth inning.

The Indians strung together five consecutive singles to produce three runs. McDilda drove in two with a long single to center field.

Wolf took the loss for Havre de Grace. She gave up 11 hits and two walks, while striking out four.

“They are a good team and she had a lot of movement which caused us a lot of struggles,” Warriors coach Austyn Ripken said. “Until that one inning we were right there, the wheels fell off.”
