"I've never witnessed anything like that before," Cedar Grove head coach Nicole Velardi told The Record. "She really held it together. We didn't realize until the last inning that she was doing it."

In her last appearance, Fiaeta struck out all 15 batters she faced. She has thrown 321 strikeouts this season, according to the North Jersey Record.

The win puts the Panthers in the finals of their playoff tournament. They play again Tuesday.
