In muddy and mucky conditions Purdy's senior southpaw Cameron Terry pitched a one-hit gem to help the Eagles defeat College Heights 3-0 on April 1.

Logan Hobbs' single in the fifth inning represented the Cougars only hit in 21 total plate appearances for College Heights.

Terry threw seven innings, allowed one hit, walked three and struck out 11.

"We didn't hit the ball very well today," said Purdy coach Joshua Hughes. "Cameron was able to keep us in the game until we could get a lead. We found a way to win."

The Eagles (2-2) manufactured a run in the fourth frame when Austin Hancock reached on an error. Hancock stole second and moved to third on a wild pitch.

Terry hit a one-out sacrifice fly to score Hancock.

The Eagles tacked on a pair of runs in the sixth.

Jared Smith began the hit parade with a double and Brent Cornman followed with a single to put runners at the corner with no one out.

Hancock flew out to center to score Smith and Terry doubled to plate Cornman and complete the scoring.

The Eagles host Galena on April 5. First pitch is set for 5 p.m.
