SNOW HILL -- Greene Central won back-to-back games for the first time this season and did it unusual fashion Thursday afternoon.

The Rams traveled to Farmville Central for a non-conference game and prevailed 3-0. They returned home and handed Tarboro High a 13-0 setback in Eastern Plains 2-A Conference play.

Brittany Leggett fired a five-inning no-hitter against Tarboro. She struck out six and walked one in the contest shortened to five innings because of the 10-run mercy rule.

Leggett helped her cause with a two-hit performance. Cassie Webb provided three hits.

The win boosted the Rams (5-16) to 3-6 in the EPC heading into next Tuesday's regular-season finale at South Lenoir.

Webb yielded no runs in seven innings on the mound and yielded one hit against Farmville Central, of the Carolina 1-A Conference. Webb fanned four Jaguar batters.

Elizabeth Cooper led the way offensively with two hits for the Rams.

Margo Brady got the loss for the Jaguars.
