FISHERSVILLE, Va. -- Riverheads High School junior pitcher Elijah Dunlap threw a complete game gem to lead the Gladiators to a 6-1 win over Wilson Memorial Tuesday night.

Dunlap needed only 72 pitches over seven innings to shutdown the Green Hornets. He gave just three hits, zero earned runs, and didn't allow a walk while striking out six batters.

With the win, Riverheads (14-2 overall, 10-2 Shenandoah District) sweeps the season series over the Green Hornets and builds a two-game lead over Wilson Memorial (10-6 overall, 8-4 Shenandoah District) for second place in the district standings. Page County (16-0 overall, 12-0 Shenandoah District) is alone in first place.
