After a 21-1 win at Greenback six days earlier, the Midway Lady Green Waves completed the season sweep with a 15-0 win Wednesday at Midway.

Midway improved to 10-4 overall and remained perfect at 4-0 in District 3-A. 

Although they are unbeaten in the district at this point, they still have several games to play and have not faced Grace Christian, Harriman and Tellico Plains.

Lady Wave pitcher Payton Kelley made short work of Greenback, firing a no-hitter. She faced only 14 batters and struck out 10 of them. 

Only two Lady Cherokees reached base. One was a walk in the first and the other was on a dropped third strike out causing an error on the throw out at first base. Only two more Greenback batters even put the ball in play.

Midway built a 10-0 lead through the first three innings and the bench finished the game with five more runs in the bottom fourth of the fourth inning.

Midway scored seven runs in the first inning with Abby Bertram and Kallie Sohm singling to start the game. Both runners then scored on a single from Raygn Hall. 

Jayde Rose kept the hitting going with a single and Kelley walked to load the bases. Kaylee Burton slapped out a single to score Hall and Rose. Katy Brookshire walked to reload the bases then Michaela Langley singled to plate Kelley and Burton. 

After an out, Bertram singled to score Langley and Sohm walked before the next two batters made outs to end the inning.

Kelley doubled to start the second inning and scored the only run on a one out single from Brookshire.

Hall was hit by a pitch to begin the third and Rose singled. Kelley and Burton walked to force in Hall then Rose scored on a two-out walk to Langley.

The bench got in some playing time when they scored five runs in the fourth. 

Cayleigh Collins walked to start the inning then Juilee Kilby singled. May singled to drive in Collins and Kilby. 

Alexis Bosnak and Mary Broucek drew walks to load the bases then Langley singled to drive in all three base runners and end the game because of the 15 runs after three innings run rule.
