SILER CITY — Savannah Beaver hurled a one-hitter to lift Eastern Randolph to a well played 3-0 victory April 4 over Jordan-Matthews in 2A PAC 7 Conference softball action.

Jordan-Matthews fell to 4-5 in league play with the loss and to 4-11 overall while Eastern Randolph remained atop the PAC 7 standings with a mark of 8-0 in the conference, and 12-3 overall.

The loss overshadowed a strong mound performance by Jordan-Matthews senior hurler Jocelyn Mitchell, who went all seven innings and threw 105 pitches while allowing nine hits, three runs, and no walks while striking out three.

Beaver trumped the Mitchell effort, however, with the one-hit gem that included two walks and seven strikeouts.

The contest was scoreless until the top of the fourth when Kelsey Craven singled to left, Brooklyn Rush sacrificed her to second, and Olivia Hall smacked an RBI-single to center to plate Craven to send the Wildcats in front 1-0.

Hall would eventually score behind back to back singles to center by Leighanna Ward and Gerrilyn Milligan.

Eastern Randolph would add an insurance run in the visiting half of the seventh when Courtnee Carter and Aniyah King slammed doubles to spark the tally and 4-0 advantage, a score that would hold behind the pitching of Beaver.

Aubree Wilson had the lone hit of the day for Jordan-Matthews, a two-out single in the fifth to right center, while Avery Headen and Ashlyn Ray drew walks.

Craven led the Wildcats as the plate with a 2-for-4 outing that included a run, an RBI, and a double. Milligan was 2-for-3 with an RBI and stolen base while Carter was 2-for-4 with a double and stolen base, and Hall was 1-for-3 with a run, an RBI and a double.
