    Hair Razors hit only one ball out of the infield, a bloop single to right field by Kira Maddle leading off the fourth inning.

    The team scored its other two runs in the third inning on three walks and two wild pitches.

    They finished two strokes ahead of Tyler and Ryan Griffith and defending champions Erik Lassaline and John Stiles.

    Peter struck out three, walked three, and gave up two hits in three innings.

    The scheduled five-inning game was ended by rain in the bottom of the third inning. But since the trailing team had batted in the majority of the scheduled innings it was ruled a complete game.

    Freshman Austin LeClere hit a double to back Peter in Perry Central’s five-hit attack.
