Norton High pitcher Kelly Nelson fires to the plate against Millis High Thursday.

NORTON - Freshman Kelly Nelson was perfect in the pitching circle for the Norton High softball team Thursday, retiring all 15 batters that she faced - eight on strikes - as the Lancers routed Millis 13-0 in a Tri-Valley League game that was called after five innings due to the mercy rule.

"I have a good feeling about this team, it's jelling," said Norton High first-year head coach Wade Lizotte, whose Lancers finished second to unbeaten Hopkinton in the TVL. The Hillers sacked the Lancers with their only two losses this season.

The MIAA Division 3 South Tournament-bound Lancers head into their final regular season game today at 17-2 as they host New Bedford in a non-league contest.

Nelson did not allow a baserunner as the Lancers were flawless in the field.

Nelson also aided her own cause by smacking three of Norton's 17 hits. Cassie Phillips, Steph Nosky and Carli Arcaro each contributed two hits.
