From Miami Herald Staff Reports

With districts just a week away, the Westminster Christian softball team is getting hot at the right time.

Having recently celebrated coach Scott Doan’s 500th win, the visiting Warriors (16-4) beat defending Class 5A state champion Plantation American Heritage 2-0 on Monday.

Pitcher Kelli Kleis pitched a complete game shutout while striking out seven Patriots and giving up just three hits to improve her record to 13-4.

The Warriors scored once in the first and again in the third off American Heritage starter Madison Canby, and that proved to be all they would need.

Kaitlyne Musa went 3 for 4 and Brittany Husk went 2 for 3 to set the pace offensively for Westminster Christian, which registered 10 total hits against American Heritage (17-3).
