Manchester pitcher Brooklyn Howard tossed her second no hitter of the season Monday, as the Lady Squires remained perfect in TRC play with a 5-0 win over North Miami.
The Lady Squires would jump on the Warriors in the first inning when Emma West led off with a single, advanced to second on a passed ball before stealing third. With one out Cierra Carter drew a walk before a Kierra Stacy single scored West for a 1-0 lead. Carter would then score on a passed ball before a Sydney Day single scored Stacy to lead 3-0.
Not that she needed it, but the Squires gave Howard 2 more runs in the fifth. With one out Howard would hit an infield single before a Carter walk. A passed ball would move up the runners before Day reached on a two out error, scoring Howard and Carter for the 5-0 score.
Howard would shut down the Warriors the remainder of the game with Kennedy Fierstos catching a fly ball in left to secure the no hitter and a 5-0 win.
