SILER CITY — Both teams were strong on the rubber Friday, but when all was said and done Jordan-Matthews defeated Wheatmore 2-1 in 2A PAC 7 Conference softball action Friday evening in Siler City.

Jocelyn Mitchell allowed just three hits to Wheatmore in claiming the win as the senior right-hander went the distance and yielded one unearned run and three walks while striking out six.

With the game scoreless in the bottom of the second, Jordan-Matthews got things going when Mitchell and LeeAnn Lilly singled to put runners at the corners, Aubree Wilson grounded out, scoring Mitchell, and Auburn Campbell smacked an RBI-single to left to plate Lilly.

The Campbell single and RBI put the Jets up 2-0, and would turn out to be the eventual game-winner as Mitchell did the rest on the mound.

Wheatmore recorded its lone score of the night when Abbey Parrish ripped a two-out single, the Jets committed their lone error of the evening and Parrish scored on an RBI-single by Kynnedy Thrift. Mitchell coaxed a fly out from Victoria Blevins to end the Warriors threat before retiring the side in the seventh to clinch the victory.

Skyler Swaney went six innings, allowing two runs on six hits, striking out five and walking zero in taking the loss for Wheatmore.

Mitchell and Lilly were each 2-for-3 at the plate offensively to lead the Jets while Campbell was 1-for-2 with an RBI, and Avery Headen 1-for-2.
