Garden City, KS-It was a long night for Corey Bryant's team.
Garden City dropped a 4-0 decision to Dodge City on Wednesday night, marking the fourth time in their last five matches that they were shutout.
And the Conquistadors got going early.
Four minutes into the match, Grecia Hernandez snuck a ball past Kaylee Keller to make it 1-0. In the 19th minute, Dodge City just missed extending the lead when D'ana Prieto's 25-yard rocket was swatted away by the sophomore goalie.
The score stayed that way until 13 minutes into the second half when Sandy Ledoux found the back of the net for a 2-0 Dodge City advantage. But the most frustrating goal of the night came in the 64th minute when Raewyn Murphy sent a rainbow shot from 40 yards out that deflected off of Keller into the net. The Conquistadors added a score in the final four minutes to complete the shutout.
Dodge City out shot Garden City 19-1, and Keller had nine saves.
The Broncbusters are back on the road Saturday afternoon vs. Barton. Match time set for 2 p.m.
