Senior pitcher Kristie Hurman threw a one-hitter yesterday to lead the No. 1 Chesapeake-AA softball team over No. 3 Severna Park, 1-0, at Severna Park.

The win put Chesapeake at 13-2 for the season and 10-1 in the county, while the Falcons fell to 13-2 overall and 9-2 in the county.

Protecting a 1-0 lead that came in the first inning on shortstop Tracey Dahlen's run-scoring single, the Cougars kept the Falcons off the bases with strong work in the field.

Center fielder Emily Bolling made a diving catch to get the first out in the fourth. With the tying run on second base and two outs in the same inning, Dahlen stayed with a soft liner that popped out of her glove and threw a strike to first.

To start the fifth, right fielder Amanda Santoni went a long way to track down a foul pop near the fence.

With a runner on second and one out, second baseman Meghan Hickman snared a line drive and Brittany Owen did the same at third to end the inning.

Severna Park pitcher Kaila Jenkins allowed just three hits while striking out seven.
