Mackenzie Peavler fired a perfect game as the Central Kentucky Batcats 14-and-under softball team routed the Gateway Heat, 9-0, in the championship game of the August Blowout, held over the weekend at Anderson County Community Park.

The gem was a fitting end to a tournament in which Peavler went 3-0 and allowed one earned run.

The Batcats are made up primarily of players from Anderson County and saw their record for the summer improve to 18-8 with the tournament title.

The local team put together a 14-hit attack in the final, led by Molly Burkhead's 4-for-4 performance. She had three RBI. Rebecca Hawkins went 2-for-3 for the team. Both hit .500 for the tournament.
