Albany -  Deerfield-Windsor ace Justin Lott threw a no-hitter and faced just 23 batters in the Knights 1-0 win over George Walton in round one of the GISA state playoffs.

Lott got pinch-hitter Clark Fisher to hit a soft line drive that the future Middle Georgia Warrior caught for the final out.

George Walton's Kenny Anderson held the Knights scoreless until the sixth.

Michael Matthews led off the frame with a single to center.

Grant Massee bunted  Matthews to second and a Evan Boyd single moved him to third.

Cullin Brown then singled to left to plate the only run of the game the Knights would need after getting a no-hitter from Justin Lott.

Justin Lott said "I had all my pitches working. My defense played good behind me. It made my job easy.

 Rod Murray said "I didn't know until late in the game. I knew they were struggling at the plate. Justin was running up there pretty good. He was getting his breaking pitch across in this game and that is big time for a guy that throws as hard as he does."

Game two is Friday at 2:00 p.m. at Deerfield-Windsor and a third game if needed would follow.
