Jordan McKee hit a two-run single to cap the scoring in the first inning for the Lady Sentinels against Norwood-Norfolk June 6.
However, it was also the final runs that the Sentinels would score as they were eliminated from state playoff competition.
Andrea Rich and Jessica Blodgett each singled in the opening frame, with Blodgett driving in the games first run. Megan Campney and Calsie Granger were then walked and, with two outs, McKee connected for a two-run single, scoring Blodgett and Campney.
The Sentinels had a scoring threat in the second inning, but Blodgett hit a line drive to shortstop that confused the baserunners as to whether or not it was caught, resulting in a double play to end the threat and the inning.
