Williams throws no-hitter for Mountaineers against Chazy

CHAZY — On most days the Minerva/Newcomb offense would have been the highlight of Wednesday’s softball game.

But Cheyenne Williams took the spotlight for the Mountaineers.

The pitcher tossed a complete-game no-hitter in Minerva/Newcomb’s 18-0 victory over Chazy in Mountain and Valley Athletic Conference softball action.

Williams struck out eight while allowing just two walks.

“Minerva/Newcomb was led by excellent hitting, solid pitching and a good defense earning Williams a no-hitter,” Eagles coach Frank Cote said.

Astasia Myler was a perfect 4-for-4 from the plate, including a double and a two-run homer, as the Mountaineers belted 19 hits in the game. Gabrielle McNally added a 4-for-5 performance with a triple and a double.

Mary Labar finished with three hits, including a double, while Danielle McNally added a pair of hits.

Paige Barcomb suffered the loss for the Eagles, striking out seven and allowing two walks.
