In its second game, Zion Harvey homered and drove in four runs as Warren Central crushed Brookhaven 11-2.

Trailing 2-0 entering the inning, the Lady Vikes got RBI singles from Kamryn Morson and Sarah Cameron Fancher, as well as run-scoring groundouts from Lola Crozier and Mary Evelyn Hossley to take a 5-2 lead.

Morgan worked out of a bases-loaded jam in the top of the fifth inning to keep it there, and the game ended via the tournament time limit in the bottom of the fifth.

In game two, Warren Central scored in every inning and had no trouble beating Brookhaven.

Harvey drove in two runs with a single in the second inning, and hit a two-run home run in the third. Makayla Jackson also was 2-for-2 with a double, two RBIs and one run scored.

Three pitchers combined on the win. Madison Pant worked the first three innings and finished with six strikeouts.

Warren Central’s next three games are on the road, beginning Monday at 6:15 p.m. at Cleveland Central.
