Sara Reams was almost perfect.
The South Fulton senior righthander tossed a no-hitter with six strikeouts, allowing one walk and committing an error to account for Trenton’s only baserunners as the Devilettes pounded Trenton 10-0 in a run rule-shortened win Monday at the Red Devilette field.
In other games involving Obion County entries Monday, Obion Central hammered visiting Ripley 16-3, while Union City dropped a 3-2 decision at Huntingdon.

Huntingdon 3, UC 2

UC was up 2-0 entering the bottom of the fifth before Huntingdon scored all its runs with the aid of a pair of walks.
The Twister girls outhit the host Fillies 8-5, but failed to cash in on a pair of golden scoring opportunities — one a bases-loaded-nobody-out situation, and the other time with runners at second and third with less than two outs.
“We’ve just got to figure out how to finish a team off when we have the opportunity,” first-year head coach Wade Maddox said after his club fell to 10-5.
Bettye Claire Beachum had two hits and knocked in both UC runs. Brittany Parker and Courtney Sherrill also had a pair of singles, while Ivey Westbrooks and Tory Reedy were responsible for the Lady Tornadoes’ other safeties.
