Penn Charter softball coach Don Mittica described the scene in the Quakers dugout on Wednesday afternoon:

"Nobody talked about it. A couple kids didn't know. . . . I think the team handled it very well."

"It" was the pitching performance of Kayla Quinn, who threw a perfect game to power Penn Charter to a 7-0 victory over host Notre Dame in the Inter-Ac League.

The sophomore got out of a jam in the fifth inning, after falling into a 3-0 count, to preserve the gem.

Mittica heaped praise on his pitcher, saying: "She knew she had to come back. She's a real competitor."

Quinn induced a ground ball to shortstop to cap the game.

Also in the Inter-Ac, Georgia Fortunato doubled and drove in two runs to lead visiting Agnes Irwin over Springside Chestnut Hill, 10-0.

Central. Senior shortstop Maron Scherer went 2 for 3 with an RBI as host Haverford defeated Ridley, 13-6.

Courtney Scarpato fanned 10 in a complete game and also drove in a run to power visiting Springfield (Delco) over Harriton, 11-0.

Strath Haven's Maddie Geary went 2 for 5 with a triple and two RBIs to pace the host Panthers to a 9-3 win over Marple Newtown.

Suburban One. Senior Lauren Quense threw a complete game and struck out 12 as Neshaminy eased past host Abington, 10-2.

Ches-Mont. Kennett's catcher, Camille Brown, went 3 for 3 and knocked in six runs to lift the Blue Demons to a 10-4 win at Oxford.

Sara Ercolani drove in three runs as host Downingtown East won, 5-1, over Downingtown West.

Friends' Central surged to a five-goal halftime lead en route to a 16-11, nonleague win over visiting Hill School. Senior midfielder Ashley Tedesco scored the first three goals for the Phoenix and finished with six overall. She also had two assists. Emma Dahle added five goals.
