In what had to be the best defensive performance in recent memory for the South Shelby Cardinals, they were able to earn their first shutout of the year with an eye-opening 32-0 victory over Palmyra on Friday night at South Shelby.
   The Cardinals set the tone early on the defensive side shutting Palmyra down on its first two drives. On the Cardinals’ second possession, they started from their own 49 yard line. Trace Windsor broke loose for a 42 yard run down to the Panther nine yard line. After a procedure penalty pushed the Cardinals back to the 14 yard line, Brett Threlkeld raced in for the first score of the night. The point after by Bryce Fifer was good making it 7-0 South Shelby with 7:44 to play in the opening quarter.
   Both teams traded possessions for the remainder of the quarter.
   The Cardinals, starting from their own 20 yard line, had a gain of 26 yards from Windsor to the 46 yard line. Two plays later a pass interference call on Palmyra gave the Cardinals a first down at the Panther 38 yard line. South Shelby continued to spread the ball around as Windsor, Threlkeld and Chase Morrow all carried it on the drive. It was Threlkeld scoring from 16 yards out to give the Cardinals a 13-0 lead with 4:13 to play in the first half.

The South Shelby Lady Birds came from behind three times against Monroe City to tie the game, but could never take the lead and ultimately lost to the Lady Panthers 6-5 in eight innings on Thursday, September 11, at South Shelby High School.
   Monroe City scored its first run in the top of the first and held a lead until South Shelby tied the game in the bottom of the third inning on back to back triples by Ebony Teter and Kenzie Kendrick.
   The Lady Panthers regained the lead and led 3-1 heading into the bottom of the fifth inning. Whitney Fountain led off the bottom of the fifth for the Lady Birds with a walk. She stole second base, went to third on a groundout, and scored on a passed ball to cut the lead to 3-2. Teter walked and reached second on a passed ball. She would later score on a fielder’s choice to tie the game at three.
   Monroe City, once again, regained the lead with two runs in the top of the sixth inning.
