CAMDEN — In a display of outstanding pitching from both teams, Perquimans scored the lone run of the game on a bases-loaded walk in the 11th inning to defeat Currituck and win the Albemarle Easter Tournament.

Evan Voliva struck out 20 in eight innings for the Knights, but he was matched by spot starter Nathan Gardner, who pitched what he and Pirates coach Justin Roberson said was the game of his life.

Gardner, while not overpowering, was a “bulldog” on the mound, Roberson said, able to throw curves and changeups for strikes, keeping them off-balance. He fanned nine, and struck out the side in the ninth before giving way.
