The HCMS softball team opened conference play with a 10-0 rout of Park View Monday.

HCHS got a tremendous pitching effort, as Miyana Ross, Courtney Epps and Beth Thomas combined on a no-hitter. Brianna Pierce had a three-hit game to spark the offense.

HCHS also capitalized on shaky defense by the Cougars.

HCMS got its first two runs in the first inning, as Pierce had a basehit and Meg Bane reached on an error. Both runners eventually scored on wild pitches for a 2-0 Lion lead.

HCMS then blew it open in the third inning, after extending its lead to 3-0.

Megan Puckett scored the third run after reaching on a one-out error.

Halifax eventually sent 11 batters to the plate and led 10-0 after scoring seven runs.
