Garden City, KS-Colby scored early and often in this one.
Emily Brackett, Jayda Shaw and Whisper Doliwa all homered, Mahealani Haegele tossed a two-hit shutout, and the Trojans blanked Garden City 14-0 in five innings Friday afternoon at Tangeman Sports Complex.
Colby scratched two runs across in the first; then blew the game open in the second with five more, including Shaw's line-drive, two-run homer to left that made it 7-0. In the third, Brackett led off the inning with a solo jack before Makenna Pendergrass ripped a two-run double to stretch the lead to 10-0.
The score stayed that way until the fifth when Haley Fox cranked an RBI double, and Doliwa mashed a two-run homer. Later in the frame, Pendergrass scored on a passed ball, and Colby was up 14-0.
Pendergrass finished 3-for-3 with three RBI for Colby. Fox, Doliwa, and Shaw each knocked in two.
