Point Pleasant came to town and had ideas of a Logan County sweep.
The Lady Knights had played down the road at Logan on Friday night and came away with a 6-2 win over the Lady Wildcats before staying overnight in an area hotel.
Point Pleasant looked to make it 2-0 for the weekend, however, the No. 1-ranked Chapmanville Lady Tigers had other ideas as CHS blanked the No. 9 Lady Knights 1-0.
Chapmanville all-state pitcher Brooke Carey was the star of the game as she fired a complete game, seven-inning no-hitter. Carey struck out 16 and walked just three.
Carey had one of two Lady Tiger hits with freshman Bre Thomas getting the other.
The Lady Tigers scored the only run of the game in the bottom of the sixth as Poppy Ramey stole home on a wild pitch.
CHS (3-1 overall and 2-0 in the Cardinal Conference) returns to action on Tuesday at Class AA sectional rival Scott. Game time is 5:30 p.m. The Lady Tigers host Wayne on Wednesday, go to Poca on Thursday and travel to 3A Cabell Midland next Saturday.
In Saturday’s JV game, Chapmanville beat Point Pleasant 11-7.
Ashley Banks and Danielle Brewster had two hits each for the Lady Tigers. Erika Richards, Brianna Blankenship, Brittani Lowe and Chynna Gilman had one hit each.
Richards was the winning pitcher.
Winfield 10, Logan 2
The No. 2-ranked Logan High School girls’ softball team was hoping to bounce back from Friday night’s 6-2 defeat to Point Pleasant in its home opener.
But a tough Winfield team stood in the way.
In the end it was No. 4-ranked Winfield which routed the Lady Cats 10-2 at the Logan softball field.
The Generals ran their record to 4-0 overall and 2-0 in the Cardinal Conference with the win.
