SALINEVILLE OH Riley McElwain was brilliant on the hill on Monday, as he threw a no-hitter to lead Columbiana Varsity Clippers past Southern 27-0.

Devin Daugherty collected four hits in four at bats to help lead Columbiana to victory. Daugherty doubled in the first, singled in the second, singled in the third, and doubled in the fourth.

The Clippers got things started in the first inning when Zachary Pleska hit a solo homer.

Columbiana scored 15 runs in the second inning. Their big inning was driven by singles by Eddie Clancy, Daugherty, McElwain, Trevor Dearing, and Matteo Mazzotta, walks by McElwain, Alex Eusebio, Seth Spooner, Eusebio, and Brady Kridler, a sac fly by Clancy, a fielder’s choice by Bayden Pipoly, and an error on a ball put in play by Kridler.
