South tied it 5-5 in the third, but Junction City scored single runs in the fourth and fifth innings. "We blew some opportunities," Puvogel said.

From Staff Reports V HIGH SCHOOL SOFTBALL Salina South's Mitchell no-hits Hutchinson Cougars win game one 8-0, but have winning streak halted in second By The Associated Press HUTCHINSON — Sara Mitchell's no-hitter sparked Salina South to an 8-0 victory over Hutchinson in the first game of Thursday's softball doubleheader. The Salt Hawks snapped the Cougars' 15-game winning streak in game two, scoring twice in the bottom of the ninth for a 3-2 victory. Mitchell faced just two batters over the minimum in Game 1, striking out four and allowing no walks in improving to 10-0 on the season. "She had a strong outing," South coach Daryl Hoelting said. "She was in control and worked ahead (of the hitters) most of the day. "And our defense made some great plays behind her. Megan Daily at second and (shortstop) Jessica Watson both had what I considered a great play that helped us to win." Leah Wahlgren, Andrea Heinrich and Tai Kerbs each had two hits for South. Tied 1-1 in the ninth inning of game two, Jaci Jahnke doubled and scored on Kelsey Snavely's single to put South in front. But Hutchinson, which failed to score after loading the bases with no outs in the eighth, answered with a pair of runs in the last of the ninth for the win. "Hutch has a nice ballclub," Hoelting said of the Class 6A Salt Hawks, who stand 15-5 on the season. "I was a little disappointed that we had a couple of opportunities to score a run or two and win the game in seven innings, but didn't execute and that was the difference in the game. But that's not taking anything away from Hutch. "We all hate to lose, but I don't think this loss is going to be detrimental to us in any way. I told the girls after the game this might help to refocus and get re-directed ,, and get us going again." : Now 18-2, South will be the NO. 1- seed at Monday's regional at East;:' Crawford and will play either Topeka West or McPherson in its- opening game. ~r ^ Events of the Day the Salina Journal Saturday until 10 a.m.- Don't miss these three early .
