Scratch run, 2-hitter win for N. County

Pitcher Evans also scores only run against Falcons

April 14, 1999|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

Top-ranked North County scratched across an unearned run in the fourth and Kellie Evans limited Severna Park to two hits as the Knights defeated No. 3 Severna Park, 1-0, yesterday in Ferndale.

Evans, a senior, had all her pitches working yesterday, relying on a fastball with good location but using an occasional slow change to keep the Severna Park batters guessing.

She struck out three and had plenty of defensive support. She also scored the game's only run after singling in the fourth inning.

Evans barely beat out a ground ball to short to reach base with one out. Brandi Schickton moved her to second with a sacrifice bunt, and Evans scored when Severna Park shortstop Meredith McAlister threw high to first on Brittany Boyd's grounder.

North County is now 8-0 and enjoying its status atop the metro area rankings.
