Warrensburg 1,

Whitehall 0

WARRENSBURG - Warrensburg scored a sole run in the first inning and put forth a stellar defensive effort the rest of the game to secure a shutout victory over Whitehall last week.

The run was accomplished by a trio of Seniors with Abby Roth getting a walk, moving to third on Rachel Simkins' sacrifice bunt, and scoring on a single by Kirsten Bentham.

Simkins pitched a complete game, striking out four while allowing only five hits and one walks. Warrensburg's tough defense stranded five Whitehall players on base.

Whitehall's Brittney Putorti pitched similarly well, recording a three-hitter with five strikeouts, but allowing four walks including the one that allowed the winning run to get on base for the Burghers.
