The Havre de Grace-Aberdeen UCBAC Susquehanna Division softball game Wednesday was a true pitcher's duel.

Visiting Aberdeen's Mackense Greico and Havre de Grace's Leah DuBois combined for 32 strikeouts in a game won by the Warriors, 2-0.

Both Havre de Grace runs scored on errors.

In the top of the fourth, Mackenzie Ellis hit a one-out single. With Ellis moving to second on a passed ball, Leah Dubois followed with a bloop toward the Eagles second baseman, who bobbled the ball then threw it away at first, allowing Ellis to score.

The Warriors added their second run in the sixth. Hailey Emerson reached on an error and got to second on the play. Olivia DuBois put down a bunt that Greico fielded. Greico elected to throw the ball to third to get Emerson, but the ball glanced off shortstop Demoni Moore's glove and Emerson raced home.

Aberdeen's best scoring chance came in the fourth. Greico singled leading off the inning. She stole second and moved to third on Raechel Bowman's single. Bowman stole second, but with runners at second and third, Leah DuBois buckled down and struck out the next three batters.

Greico added a one-out single in the sixth, but before Bowman added her second single, Greico was thrown out trying to steal third.
