CALUMET CITY | It may have been a windy and rainy day. T.F. South may have been a little late getting to the game.

Neither bothered Rebels starter Devin Pieper for a minute.

Pieper no-hit T.F. North over five innings on the way to a 16-1 win over the Meteors on T.F. North's Senior Night in South Suburban Blue play.

The Meteors' lone run came when Pieper hit first-inning leadoff batter Makiah Garrett, and she later came around to score.

After the early glitch, Pieper settled in and struck out 10 of the final 14 hitters she faced. The win was Pieper's second no-hitter of the season, her first coming in a perfect game against Hillcrest on May 8.

"I warmed up enough to get by," Pieper said. "I think I was good to go and we did good as a team. We're getting along really good, and we're playing together as a team."

T.F. South (16-6, 11-5) jumped all over Meteors starter Antonia Jones (0-8), who walked three Rebel batters in the first. The Rebels plated six runs in the first and added nine runs in the second.

Leadoff hitter Tiambris Tate was 2 for 5 with six RBIs, including a grand slam in the top of the second.

"I'm just going out there and doing my best, going up to the bat and seeing the ball," Tate said. "I was just excited to hit the ball. It's a great feeling hitting the ball."

Ashtyn Kapovich was 2 for 3 with a home run, three RBIs, and three runs.

T.F. North (0-24, 0-17) was unable to get the bats going against Pieper (9-6), but the Meteors went down swinging and had their clean cuts at the Rebels starter.

"The girls have been working a lot on their batting especially against faster pitchers," T.F. North coach Kara Zentz said. "They're getting used to it, and they're getting better at it."

T.F. South will face Bremen at 4:30 p.m today for the Rebels senior night. The Rebels outlasted the Braves in nine innings earlier in the season.

"(Today) is a big game against Bremen," T.F. South coach Jamie Arundel said. "They're just behind us in the conference, it's the field dedication, and it's senior night. It's a big game for us."
