Duncan allows just a hit in 7-0 Seymour victory
Miranda Duncan already has a perfect game to her credit.
The Seymour came awful close to another on Thursday, striking out 12 Cherokee batters and allowing just one hit in a 7-0 victory. Kara Mahan’s single in the fifth was the only blemish.
Duncan got all the run support she needed in the first when she drove in Lauren Irwin with a double to left. She would also score a run herself in the fifth.
The Eagles had seven different batters drive in seven different runners. Irwin, Duncan, Taylor Erjavec and Danielle Mull had two hits each.

GATLINBURG — Chris Kilbourne had two goals in his return from injury while Luis Sauceda added a tally on a 40-yard free kick.
Highlanders coach Zach Schrandt said Kilbourne is at only about 75 percent but he adds a boost to G-P’s lineup.
“It gives us another scoring option,” Schrandt said. “He’s a left wing who can cut in with his right foot. We really missed that piece to our puzzle the last couple weeks.”
