PECATONICA, Ill. - The South Beloit softball team is one win away from capturing an IHSA Class 1A regional title.

The SoBos, behind Madison Carlson and a terrific offensive performance, rolled over Pecatonica 10-0 Tuesday.

Carlson pitched a perfect game, retiring all 15 hitters she faced with 11 strikeouts along the way.

Jenna Lynde and Kristina Counts each had two hits for the SoBos, who were also able to take advantage of five Pecatonica errors.

The SoBos will take on Hiawatha in Friday's regional final at Hiawatha.

• BELOIT MEMORIAL 4, VERONA 0: The Purple Knights picked up their finest win of the season Tuesday behind a terrific pitching performance from Corbin Ovist.

The Beloit senior threw a complete-game three-hitter at the Wildcats, allowing three walks while striking out five.

The Knights scored all four of their runs in the fifth inning with two outs.

Chad Dixon led off the frame with a single, but after a pair of strikeouts and a wild pitch was on second base when Jake Raisbeck hit a triple to score Dixon with the game's first run. Liam Flanagan followed with a single to chase home Raisbeck, and after Ovist singled, Brett Kiger hit a two-run double to cap the scoring.

The Knights will play at Verona Thursday.

• BIG FOOT 14, EDGERTON 13: In a wild game, the Chiefs outlasted the Crimson Tide in nine innings.

Edgerton led 10-3 heading into the top of the seventh inning before Big Foot rallied for nine runs to take a 12-10 lead.

Edgerton promptly put up two runs to send the game into extras. The Chiefs scored twice in the ninth, then held the Tide to one run in the bottom of the inning to end the game.

Jack Hereley led the way offensively for the Chiefs as he went 4-for-5 with five RBI's.

• SOCCER: VERONA 5, BELOIT 0: The Knitro were shut out Tuesday at home by the Wildcats despite a terrific performance by Knitro goalie Meghan Drucker, who finished the game with eight saves.

"She played a monster game for us," Knitro coach Brian Denu said. "She was the only reason the score wasn't much higher tonight. Verona did whatever they wanted all night. We are a little banged up right now, but so is everyone else at this point of the season. We have three games to get out of this funk before the playoffs start."

Verona scored twice in the first half and three more times in the second half to close the win.

• HONONEGAH 4, GUILFORD 0: The Indians advanced to the IHSA Class 3A regional finals with a shutout win against the Vikings Tuesday night.

Adri Fiorini scored to make it 2-0, while Wedig and Lauren Wagner closed out the scoring.
