Northern Valley received outstanding pitching from Sawyer Smith and Tyler Harris, but South Parkland's Matt Hurd was even better.
Hurd tossed a three-hit shutout to hand Northern Valley a 1-0 defeat in its Lehigh Valley Legion opener on Tuesday.
Smith hurled four innings, allowing just one run on three hits. He walked two and struck out four. Harris relieved the NV starter and pitched three scoreless frames, giving up two hits while fanning a pair.
South Parkland (2-2) scored the game's only run in the top of the third when Jake Rosenblatt drove in Damin Muth.
