North Kossuth ended the Laurens-Marathon softball team's hopes for a second consecutive state tournament berth here Saturday night with a 1-0 win over the Chargers.
Charger righthander Bryn Johnson took the hard luck mound loss, giving up just two hits and one run, which was earned. She didn't walk a batter and struck out three North Kossuth hitters.
Laurens-Marathon was held to just two hits, including singles by Jacqulyn Schmidt and Amber Sandvig.
The Chargers were flawless in the field, not committing a single error.
