The Heritage softball team played its shortest and most dominating game of the season Tuesday night, in a 15-0 rout of visiting Cedar Shoals.

The Patriots took just three innings and 42 minutes to dispatch the Jaguars and win their 13th straight game of the season.

Kamryn Toney, improved to 7-1, giving up just one hit, and tallied strikeouts for seven of the game's nine outs. The other two was a ground out to first and a fly out.

Heritage (18-1, 5-0 Region 8-AAAAA) hitters had just two innings to put up 15 runs, but took advantage of both of those frames.

Sophomore Jamiya Barker was 2 for 2 with a triple and three RBI's, Taylor Mauser was 2 for 3 with a single, a double and a triple, while driving in five runs. Cierra Davenport and Diamond Callwood also had two hits each, with Davenport driving in a run and Callwood notching a triple.

"It was another win in the region," Heritage coach Jason McBay said. "One of our goals this year was to win the region, and coming in I think we were favored to be in the top four, but not among the best."

Some of the other teams predicted to be in the top four are Loganville and Gainesville.

The Patriots will face both of those schools soon, along with Winder-Barrow which is also undefeated in region play and defeated coaches poll-ranked Loganville. Heritage faces Gainesville Thursday, Winder-Barrow Tuesday and Loganville Thursday in its next three games.

"Another win in the region is another step in right direction," McBay said. "I don't want to lose momentum, I just continue to gain and I think we did it this week."
