RUSSELL SPRINGS - Garrard County couldn't get a hit off Mary Beth Pennington, but the Golden Lions still got a win over Boyle County in the 12th Region Tournament here Tuesday.
Garrard beat Boyle 1-0 behind the one-hit pitching of Tiffany Meadors to advance to tonight's semifinals against South Laurel at 6. The other semifinal will pair Danville, a 14-4 winner over Mercer County, against Pulaski Southwestern at about 7:30.
"It was probably our best overall defensive game of the year," Garrard coach Jeff Meadors said. "We didn't make an error and really looked tough. If we can hit the ball a little better and if Tiffany pitches well again, who knows what might happen against South Laurel."
Tiffany Meadors allowed only one hit - a third inning double by Pennington - and struck out eight for Garrard (19-16).
