The Cabot Lady Panthers put on an offensive explosion while beating West Memphis 28-0, but also lost a tight one to the Marion Lady Patriots.

Against West Memphis, Cabot scored those 28 runs in just three innings while starting pitcher Anna McCluskey pitched a no-hitter while striking out five.

The Lady Panthers had 12 hits in the win while taking advantage of 11 walks and several errors.

Cabot batted around twice in the second inning while pushing 17 runs across the plate. Heather Hill homered in the inning for the Lady Panthers.

Against Marion, Cabot let a 3-0 lead slip away into a 7-6 conference loss.

Marion cut into the lead with a pair of runs in the top of the fifth inning. Cabot took a 4-2 lead in the bottom of the inning when Shauna Attendorn doubled, made it to third and scored on a sacrifice fly by Eckert.

The Lady Patriots suddenly found their hitting stroke in the sixth inning when they banged out two singles, two doubles and took advantage of a walk and an error to score five runs and take a 7-4 lead.

McCluskey held Marion scoreless in the top of the seventh inning, but came up just short in their final at bat.

With two outs, Felder started the rally with a hard single. Abbott reached on an error, then both scored when Molly Wood drilled a double that put the tying run in scoring position. A line drive back to the pitcher ended the night for the Lady Panthers.

Vines and Felder led Cabot with a pair of singles from each.
