CASTLEWOOD — Once Bath County hung a five-spot on the board, the writing was on the wall for Castlewood’s softball team.

Jailyn Ford took it from there, striking out 13 batters en route to a complete-game, two-hit shutout as Bath County advanced to the semifinals of the VHSL Group A, Division 1 state tournament with a 7-0 victory over the Lady Blue Devils on Tuesday.

The Lady Chargers broke open a scoreless game by batting around in the third inning, using five hits and a sacrifice bunt to take a commanding lead.
