ST. PETERSBURG — Top-seeded Cambridge (14-11) came into Tuesday’s Class A, District 9 semifinals as the easy favorite.

The Lancers lived up to their top billing, jumping all over Keswick Christian with solid pitching by Zach Hessinger and Brett Torrens, who combined for a no-hitter in a 14-0 mercy-rule win.

In the first inning, Cambridge’s Spencer Wynn got a hit with the bases loaded to help put the Lancers up 5-0. And they never looked back, adding three runs in the bottom of the second.

In the early semifinal, Canterbury eked out a 5-4 victory over Carrollwood Day.

CDS took a 1-0 lead in the first inning. After loading the bases, Ryan Hill came up to the plate and hit what appeared to be a foul ball into leftfield. After a brief conference, officials ruled it was a fair ball, resulting in a grand slam to put Canterbury up 4-1. The Crusaders  hung on down the stretch with solid pitching from Harrison Hall and DaSean Thomas.
