Jessie Odom struck out nine and allowed just one hit as South Central scored a 2-0 softball victory against Eastern Carolina 3-A Conference foe Eastern Wayne on Thursday.

The Falcons scored in the first inning with the help of an error. Karen Harker, who opened the frame with a single, trotted home when the Warriors couldn't handle a grounder by Nicole Nunamaker.

Harker also accounted for the only other run in the game. After opening things with a single, Harker stole second base. Odom followed with an RBI single to left field to push the lead to 2-0.

Emily Sasser collected the Warriors' lone hit.

Eastern Wayne right-hander Ginny Narron suffered the pitching loss and surrendered both runs on five errors.

South Central (11-2, 9-1 ECC) will return to action next Thursday in the D.H. Conley Spring Softball Tournament.
