Kaitln Sturgeon reached on an error and scored on a hit by Sydney Campolo.

Olivia Wolffe pitched for the Panthers and was on her ‘A’ game, according to head coach Joe Henry.

“As the innings got longer, she got faster and was hitting her spots,” Henry said. “Sheridan is now 14-0 and well-coached. We had our chances to score but couldn’t deliver.

“The girls left everything on the field and played well,” Henry said. “The coaching staff was pleased with the performance.”

Wolffe allowed three hits and one earned run. She struck out seven and walked two.
