Published: Thursday, May 17, 2012 5:30 a.m. CDT

The Hiawatha softball team’s season came to an end with a 3-0 loss to Ashton-Franklin Center in Wednesday’s Class 1A Indian Creek Regional semifinals.

A-FC pitcher Lexie James carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning before Hiawatha’s Haley Melendez singled to lead off the inning.

Ashley Tamraz look the loss in the circle for the third-seeded Hawks (14-13). Tamraz threw six innings, struck out eight and allowed nine hits against second-seeded A-FC.
Barbs lose in extras:
DeKalb lost to St. Charles East, 4-1, in eight innings. Haley Tadd hit a solo home run for the Barbs (17-12).

“Kaylin Kennedy threw fantastic today,” DeKalb coach Jeff Davis said. “We had opportunities to score today but could not generate enough offense.”
Knights win in 6:
Kaneland defeated Oswego East, 10-0, in six innings. Delani Vest got the win for the Knights (28-6). She struck out eight and walked two while Lanie Callaghan and McKinzi Mangers each went 3 for 4 at the plate.

Bobcats advance: Somonauk beat Earlville-Leland, 8-4, in the Class 1A Newark Regional semifinals. The Bobcats (13-17-1) will play Serena on Saturday in the regional title game.


Barbs fall to Rockets:
DeKalb took a tough, 3-2 loss to Burlington Central.

Patrick Aves and Jeremy Karasewski were each 1 for 3 with an RBI for the Barbs (14-15-1). Karasewski took the loss on the mound. He threw 51⁄3 innings and walked four.

DeKalb coach Jake Howells credited Burlington Central’s defense with making several outstanding plays to snuff out DeKalb rallies in what he called a “playoff type” game.

“It was well-played defensively,” Howells said. “They made some great catches and we turned some double plays.”

Spartans lose to Bulldogs: Sycamore took a 7-3 loss to Batavia to fall to 17-12. Matt Godinsky took the defeat on the mound but hit a two-run home run. Nathan Haacker added a double for the Spartans.

“Everything that could have went wrong in the first three innings did,” Sycamore coach Jason Cavanaugh said.
