Lizzy Galloway faced just 22 batters in Goshen’s 2-0 win over New Brockton in the first game of the area tournament Thursday afternoon.

Galloway allowed no hits, no walks in the complete-game shutout, with the only blemish being a Goshen error in the fourth inning.

Galloway used a pinpoint fastball and dominant rise ball to mow down batters and get numerous ground balls.

“Lizzy has really turned it on since the Elba tournament,” said Goshen head coach Amy Warrick. “She had struggled some before, but since that tournament, she has been lights out. The defense was cleaned up well today as well, which I am really proud of.”

Goshen’s first run of the game came in the bottom of the second inning on a sharp ground ball up the middle from Haley Hughes. Katie Thomas scored on the play.

The Lady Eagles picked up an insurance run in the bottom of the fourth inning on a bloop single to left off the bat of first baseman Tessa Little.

“The hitting wasn’t where I liked it today, but we were able to get the win,” Warrick said. “We have to do a better job tomorrow.”

Goshen will meet rival Zion Chapel in the winner’s bracket game Friday at 3 p.m.

The tournament championship game is slated for 7 p.m.
