Twenty one up, 21 down … that was the day Olentangy softball team ace Sophie Low had in the circle.

Just 24 hours after tossing a one-hit shutout, Low came back with en even better gem, firing a perfect game to lead the Braves to a 3-0 win over Slippery Rock (PA) Friday afternoon in Myrtle Beach, SC.

She struck out 12, throwing first-pitch strikes to 10 of the 21 batters she faced.

The Olentangy (4-1) offense, meanwhile, was powered by Morgan and Payton Cox, who each homered in the win. Morgan Cox finished 2-for-3 with a run and two RBI while Payton Cox closed 2-for-3 with a run and one knocked in.
