HAMLIN — A single run in the first inning proved to be just enough for Lincoln County as the Panthers defeated Spring Valley 1-0 Thursday evening in the Class AAA Region IV Section 1 softball tournament.

Lincoln County’s first two batters in the lineup reached on an error and a walk and then each advanced on a wild pitch. Pitcher Ryleigh Shull gave herself some cushion with a sacrifice fly that scored Hayleigh Adkins.
