---- — By The Daily Item


LOCK HAVEN -- Sometimes, throwing a no-hitter just isn't enough to win a ballgame.

Jillian East threw a no-hitter for the Milton Major Division All-Stars in Wednesday's Section 3 game against Clinton, but it came in a 3-2 loss in day two of the tournament for the District 13 champs.

MeKayla Schrock hit a double and Milton scored both of its runs in the first inning.

Clinton eventually scored the game's tying and winning runs in the fourth.

Milton next plays the Minersville and Potter-McKean winner today at 5:30 p.m to stay alive in the tournament.

Should Milton win, then the team advances to the championship game Friday at 5:30.
