LUMBERTON – Getting a perfect game from ace pitcher Carson Fall, the Bridge City Cardinals stayed perfect in District 22-4A action with a 2-0 road victory over the Lumberton Lady Raiders Tuesday night.

Fall struck out 19 without allowing a single hit as the Lady Cardinals upped their 22-4A mark to 6-0 to wrap up the first half of district play.

The Lady Cardinals scratched in a pair of runs against tough Lumberton pitching on a Marlie Strong swinging bunt that the Lady Raiders threw into rightfield after a bad pickoff attempt.

The Lady Cardinals will play host to West Orange-Stark Friday.
