    Notre Dame-Cathedral Latin pitchers Alex Mould and Lily Rader combined to hold Lake Catholic hitless in a 16-1 five-inning win on Tuesday.

    Mould picked up the pitching victory after holding the Cougars hitless and scoreless with two strikeouts in two innings of work. Rader allowed one unearned run and struck out four in three innings.

    “I was incredibly happy that I was able to contribute to the no-hitter,” Mould said. “My goal was to start strong to gain momentum for my team. I was just as happy to see my teammate Lily Rader succeed and do her part as well.”

    Mould and Rader were efficient in mowing down the Cougar hitters.

    They combined to throw just 84 pitches with 54 of them finding the strike zone.

    “The key was to hit the spots that our coach was calling and to stay loose on the mound,” Mould said. “We both had trust in our coaches and ourselves. Without that, we would not have seen the same outcome.”

    NDCL’s offense provided plenty of run support for their pitchers as the Lions scored six runs in the first, four in the second, five more in the third, and closed out their scoring with one in the fourth.

    Maya Rowan powered the Lion offense as she went 3-for-5 at the plate with a double, two runs scored, and she knocked in two runs.

    Celia Anthony was 2-for-4 with a run scored and Lucy Joyce, Becca Wooke, Mould, Bella Wooke, Giavanna Beatrice, and Lila Baeslach each recorded one hit in the win. Becca and Bella Wooke both scored three runs and Beatrice knocked in a pair.

    “As a pitcher, my team producing offensively helps me to remain calm,” Mould said. “With runs on the board, I feel more comfortable in my pitches. This is because I know that if the other team scores a run, I can rely on our offense to get it back. My team has my back and that helps me to stay confident even when we are down.”

    The Lions, who improved to 4-6 with their second straight win, host Beaumont on Wednesday.
