Softball: Spring-Ford edges Upper Perkiomen behind Scogna; Perkiomen Valley's Sciarra fires no-hitter

Spring-Ford 2, Upper Perkiomen 1 – Bri Peck snapped a scoreless deadlock with an RBI-single in the top of the sixth inning and Madi Walsh followed with a run-scoring double to carry the Rams to the PAC crossover victory Monday in a battle of divisional leaders.
Jules Scogna was exceptional in the circle, going the distance for the win, allowing just four hits and one walk while striking out 11. The right-hander lost her shutout in the home seventh when the Indians' Sierra Fretz followed Dani Freer’s single with a run-scoring double, but Scogna buckled down and sealed the deal by inducing a pop out and strikeout.
Taylor Croak was the hard-luck loser for Upper Perk, allowing five hits, two earned runs and two walks against two strikeouts.
Spring-Ford’s Lexi Wescott was 2-for-3 - the only player for either side with multiple hits.
