AMHERST, Mass. -- Senior Elizabeth Morris threw a no-hitter Friday to lead Middlebury to a 1-0 win at Amherst.

Locked in a pitchers’ duel with Jeff starter Jackie Buechler, Morris allowed just two base runners, retiring 14 consecutive batters after issuing a lead-off walk in the bottom of the first. Striking out five, she improved to 4-1 on the season. Also going the distance, Buechler scattered five hits in the loss, fanning six without handing out a free pass. 

Kaitlin Silkowitz drew a walk for Amherst in the first, stole second and then tried for third, but overslid the bag, allowing Kelsey Martel to apply the tag.   

Beating out a ground ball to short, Middlebury’s Carlyn Vachow notched the game’s first hit in the top of the second inning. Hye-Jin Kim then singled up the middle, before Martel punched a single through the right side to plate Vachow for the game’s only run. The Panthers left two of its four runners on  base in the inning, leading 1-0 after two.

Still hitless with two out in the fifth, Carolyn Miller reached on an error. But Morris quickly shut the door, getting Alena Marovitz to hit into a fielder’s choice to short.

Kim finished the game 2-or-3 to lead all hitters.
