The Moore County Raiderettes faced their biggest District 9-A test of the season Tuesday night at Huntland.
Even though they had six hits and got a sterling 13-strikeout performance from Kasey Harvey in the circle, it was a lone hit in the second inning that proved to be the difference.
Emily Parks’ solo home run gave Moore County a 1-0 lead. As it turned out, that’s all Harvey needed as the Raiderettes held on to defeat the Hornets 1-0.
Harvey’s 13 Ks helped the Raiderettes earn the shutout. She pitched a no-hitter through six innings.
Kyleigh Camp had two hits for Moore County, with a single in the fourth inning and a single in the sixth. But Camp was stranded at third in the fourth and left on base in the sixth as the Raiderettes failed to take advantage.
Emily Powell, Savannah Stevens and Harvey each had hits for Moore County as well.
Tuesday’s win followed a long weekend for Moore County, during which the Raiderettes went 3-2 at the Chik-Fil-A Brentwood Classic.
