Northside Christian completed a regular-season sweep of district (2A-11) foe Shorecrest on Tuesday with a 4-2 victory on the road.
Tiffany Boyer broke open a 1-all tie in the third inning with a bases-loaded bloop single over second base that scored two.
The victory wrapped up the No. 1 seed in the district tournament.
After Shorecrest cut the Mustangs’ advantage to 3-2 in the sixth, Lauren Tozour hit a sacrifice fly in the seventh to score Kayla Turner and push Northside’s lead back to two.
Mustangs pitcher Jessica Anderson went the distance, giving up two runs on three hits with five strikeouts.
“Jess (Anderson) is throwing as well as I’ve seen her throw in a long time,” said Northside coach John Anderson, the pitcher’s father.
The Mustangs (13-2) were outstanding defensively, particularly shortstop Stephanie Bonalewicz, who made five plays in the field without an error.
“That’s the best defensive game we’ve had all year long,” Anderson said.
Two of Shorecrest’s three hits were doubles. Hannah Smith and Hayley Jayson had extra-base hits for the Chargers.
The Mustangs finish their regular-season district schedule undefeated.

Palm Harbor University 4, Seminole 3
David Teytelbaum and Nathan Lord’s come-from-behind victory at No. 1 doubles paced Palm Harbor University’s win over Seminole at home.
