SMITHSBURG - Alyssa Reed fired a two-hit shutout with 10 strikeouts to lead Smithsburg to a 1-0 win over No. 6 Brunswick in an MVAL Antietam softball game Wednesday.

"I felt good," Reed said. "I was just moving the ball around and keeping it low. I felt like I was in control all night. I felt like I had it tonight."

Smithsburg (11-6, 10-3) got its only run in the bottom of the fourth. Candace Stanford reached on an error and stole second base. Amy Miller followed with a single to center and Stanford scored when the center fielder bobbled the ball.

"When we came up to bat in the bottom of the third inning, I told our players that it was going to be a defensive game," Smithsburg coach Brian Getz said. "I also told them that whoever scores the first run will win the game."

Brunswick coach Chris Shullenbarger was impressed with Reed's pitching.

"Alyssa Reed is a good-looking pitcher and she has got good-looking speed," Shullenbarger said. "She was able to strike out some of our batters. Some of our hitters were able to figure her out and they hit some hard line drives. They just happened to go straight to the fielders."

Brunswick falls to 10-4, 7-4.
