Great as the hitting was, the pitching was even better. Madison Currence and Leah Correll combined for a no-hitter. Currence walked just one batter over three innings while striking out seven. Currence walked none and stuck out three in her two innings.

Taliyah Thomas had a home run and a triple and Jaelyn Freeston also homered. Hailey McFadden went 2 for 2, had two rbi's and scored two runs.

East Lincoln beat Forestview in the first round and will now travel to Gibsonville to play Eastern Guilford on Thursday.

Isaac Armstrong struck out 11 batters, allowed just four hits--only one double an extra base hit, and walked just two over six-and-two-thirds innings. He also helped his own cause with a solo home run. Trey Spees batted 3 for 3, had two rbi's and scored two runs. Armstrong was 2 for 3 at the plate. Forestview chose to stay away from powerful Garrett Michel; the home run hitter with 20 this season walked three times. Graham Smiley went 2 for 4 including a double and an rbi.

Pleasant in round two on Thursday.  Lincoln Charter beat Surry Central 7-5 taking advantage of five errors by the visitors and 9 bases on balls by their pitchers.  The Eagles will host Forbush on Thursday.  

Cherryville opened the 1A playoffs with a 10-0 win over Piedmont Community Charter.  The Ironmen will host Mtn. Island Charter on Thursday.  

[NOTE: Since the forecast is calling for rain Friday, most of the softball and baseball second round games will likely be moved up to Thursday. The softball games involving East Lincoln, North Lincoln and Bandys; and the East Lincoln vs Eastern Guilford, Lincoln Charter vs Forbush, Foard vs West Henderson, and Bandys vs Mt. Pleasant baseball games are already set for Thursday.]

Lincoln Charter will play Pine Lake Prep in the semi-final round of the NCHSAA 2A team playoffs at Spartan Park on Beatties Ford Road (Huntersville). Coach Scott Fowler says Tyler Ramanata from PLP is the best 2A player in the state, so the Eagles will need strong performances in the other singles matches and (if the match goes that far) in doubles. The two teams split their meetings during the regular season.

The Lincolnton girls soccer team hasn't lost since they suffered a 1-0 shutout against Newton-Conover in late March. They've now won 11 games in a row and have a season record of14-5 and a Catawba Valley Conference record of 12-1, tops in the league. They beat second place Maiden 4-1 Monday. The Wolves will host West Lincoln in their final regular season match at 6:30 Wednesday evening. West lost at East Burke 2-0 Monday. Maiden finishes the regular season at Newton-Conover Wednesday (5 PM).

The Mustangs have one regular season match left--at home against Hickory on Thursday (6 PM). Hickory, which had been tops in the league, is in 2nd place with an 11-2 conference record.

North Lincoln finished the regular season last Thursday with an 8-0 win over Statesville. Fred T. Foard beat West Iredell 9-0 Monday in the Tigers' last regular season game.
