Jillian Compton and Jessie Hufstetler, two of the Central Coast's brightest softball stars, were locked in a pitchers' duel on Friday in a key PAC 7 League showdown between Arroyo Grande and Atascadero High Schools. The Fresno State-bound Compton carried a perfect game into the fifth inning, while the San Jose State-bound Hufstetler carried a no-hitter into the fourth inning.
In the end, Marissa McClain stole the show with a two-run home run to end Compton's no-hitter in the bottom of the fifth inning propelled Atascadero to a 3-0 win. McClain was playing in just her third game since returning from a torn hamstring, an injury she suffered in the first game of the preseason.
The first place Hounds improved to 8-1 in league, while defending champion Arroyo Grande fell to 5-4.
Hufstetler finished with a one-hit shutout with 3 strikeouts. Maurisa Dominguez had the Eagles' only hit, a double in the fourth inning.
Compton allowed 3 runs and 5 hits in the game. She struck out 8 Greyhounds, including 6 of the first 9 hitters she faced in the game.
