The 2017 Belize City Softball Competition continued on Monday 17th July, at Rogers Stadium with a scheduled game between the defending champions the Belize Bank Bulldogs and Beacon.

Beacon still recovering from its extra inning 12-9 loss to the Belize Bank Bulldogs on Friday 14th July, but for unknown reasons, the ghosts of softball past showed up on Monday night when Ayannah Smith hurled the season’s first no-hitter and her first shut-out win against the Belize Bank Bulldogs. Not only it was her first no-hitter of her young career, she also blanked the Belize Bank Bulldogs by the score of 12-0 in 4 innings.

Beacon scored 3 runs in the first inning, added another 3 in the second inning, 3 more in the third inning and then scored 3 more in the fourth inning for the shut-out win.

Beacon collected a total of 7 hits off the Belize Bank Bulldogs starting and losing pitcher Renisha Richards.

With that win, Beacon is now posting a 4-7 record with at least 4 more games to play in the competition. The team has its eyes set on the number one spot into the playoffs and a place in the national championship.

Ayannah Smith now joins the likes of Isolene Heath, Linda Lewis, Margaret Peters, Margaret Usher and Linda Reyes in tossing at least a No-Hit shut out game in the prestigious Belize City Senior Female Competition.
