Tara Baney pitched a one-hitter to lead Bellefonte past Penns Valley 10-0 in six innings Friday.
Baney threw a complete game, striking out six and walking three to earn the win.
“Her rise and screwball were working well,” Bellefonte coach Fred Caldwell said.
The Lady Red Raiders jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the first inning, highlighted by Jenna Ault’s two-run single. Bellefonte then added four runs in the second inning and ended the game on Ault’s two-run double in the sixth.
