Batting ninth for the Grove City High School softball team, Taryn Allmon was 2-for-2 and scored the game's lone run on a squeeze play as the Greyhounds - who also got another no-hitter from Paige Myers - edged Hilliard Darby 1-0 in a Division I regional semifinal Thursday at Ohio State's Buckeye Field.

Batting ninth for the Grove City High School softball team, Taryn Allmon was 2-for-2 and scored the game's lone run on a squeeze play as the Greyhounds - who also got another no-hitter from Paige Myers - edged Hilliard Darby 1-0 in a Division I regional semifinal Thursday at Ohio State's Buckeye Field.

Grove City improved to 27-3 and will face Lebanon in the regional final at noon Saturday back at Ohio State.

They Greyhounds took control when Allmon hit a triple with one out in the bottom of the sixth inning. Leadoff batter Erin Galloway hit a bunt-single in the next at-bat to score Allmon.

"It was Galloway," Allmon said. "She basically got it down for me."

Scoring opportunities were few and far between for the Greyhounds. Allmon singled to right field in the third inning and then was thrown out by Darby catcher M.K. O'Shea trying to steal second on the first pitch to Galloway.

After Allmon's triple, Grove City coach Ted Williams waited until Galloway hit a foul ball on the first pitch before trying to advance the runner.

"I was going to give Erin one pitch to take the ball backside," Williams said. "If you take the ball backside, we're going to play the run here. After that first pitch, I knew we were squeezing."

Myers had 15 strikeouts and allowed two walks. Darby pitcher Kellie Roudabush, whose team finished 23-6, allowed four hits and had seven strikeouts. She started the game with six consecutive strikeouts before giving up the single to Allmon.

Darby's best scoring chance came in the fourth inning with Hiedi Graessle on first base. With two outs Roudabush hit a fly ball to right field that made Allmon dive for the catch.

"Hiedi was on her horse," Darby coach Kevin Moody said. "She would have scored on that if they didn't come up with that catch.

"I think we played a pretty solid game. Obviously, Grove City played a pretty solid game. They had just one timely hit that we didn't get for ourselves."
