The Marshall County Tigerettes continued their winning ways on Wednesday at Rudderville, beating the Page Lady Patriots 7-2.

MCHS hurler Marlee Woodard turned in a gem in the circle for the Tigerettes, coming within three outs of a perfect game.

Woodard did not allow a Page baserunner until the bottom of the seventh inning when the Lady Pats reached on an error and three subsequent hits made it 7-2 before a grounder back to Woodard in the circle ended the game.
