PETERSBURG, W.Va. — Brittani Bible hit a two-run home run during an 11-run first inning as second-ranked Petersburg made quick work of Pendleton, winning 14-0 in three innings and posting its first 20-win regular season on Wednesday.

Winning pitcher Marley Thompson ripped a two-run double, Cassidy Hedrick had an RBI double and a single, Kaitlyn Keplinger added two singles and an RBI, and Kamee Iman and Cheyenne Earle each stroked an RBI single for the Vikings.

Thompson allowed one hit and struck out three in getting the win.

Melissa Stump had Pendleton’s hit, a double.

The win makes coach Dwayne Hedrick’s Vikings 20-5. They play again today in a 5 p.m. doubleheader at Tucker County.

MOOREFIELD, W.Va. — Moorefield scored four times in the bottom of the sixth inning, turning a 3-2 lead into a 7-2 cushion Wednesday in game that locked up home field for the Yellow Jackets in the upcoming sectional playoffs.
