KITTERY — Traip Academy pitcher Reilly Eddy had a dominant first start of the season, striking out 16 Buckfield batters and taking a no-hitter into the seventh inning of a 3-0 victory in a softball season opener.
The Bucks (0-1) broke up the no-hitter on a Cara Merrill triple in their final turn at the plate. Julia Dow pitched a four-hitter for Buckfield, allowing just four singles.
The Rangers (1-0) got the only run they needed in the bottom of the first, and added single runs in the third and fifth. Addy Hale had a pair of hits for Traip, which took advantage of four Buckfield errors.
