FALCON FIESTA TOURNAMENT

GRANITE HILLS 12, SAN DIEGUITO ACADEMY 0

On Monday up in the North County the Granite Hills Eagles showed how dominant they can be as Catie Dobbs (2-2) tossed a five-inning no-hitter and the bats came alive in a big second inning.

Granite Hills (6-3) in the second inning started off with a Dobbs walk, Erica Simon (2R) into run. She would later come into score to give them a 1-0 lead on a Brooke Bertussi (1-2, 2R, RBI) base hit to right field, Haley Johnson (2-3, R, RBI) who singled in her at-bat came into score on a base hit by Taylor Rose (1-3, R, RBI), after a Bailey Wallace (1-1, R, RBI) walk to load the bases the Eagles would score a third run as Rylee Omahen (R, RBI) drew a walk which plated Bertussi to make it 3-0.

Still with the bases full and looking to do more damage the Eagles were able to do so as Staci Chambers (1-2, R, 4 RBI, HR) crushed the offering over the right-field fence for a grand slam and third home run on the season.

Leading 7-0 after the slam by Chambers the Eagles would go onto add four more runs which included Amaya Esparza scoring on a sacrifice fly by Mackenzie Boehm (2 RBI) and a Wallace single bringing home Bertussi to round out the scoring in the inning.

Granite would add their final run in the top of the third inning with one out as Sydney Huse (RUN), Chloe Knepp and Dobbs walked consecutively to load the bases. With the bases packed, Johnson was able to bring Huse home as she smacked a base hit to center field.

With a comfortable 12-0 lead, Dobbs matched the offense in the circle as she retired the Mustangs one-by-one.

San Dieguito Academy (1-7) was no match for Dobbs as she overpowered them the entire day and were only were able to muster three measly walks.

The Eagles roughed up Mustangs pitcher Charli Shinstine for 10 runs in 1 1/3 innings in the loss.

Dobbs in the victory went 5 innings in which she struck out 10 while giving up 0 runs and 0 hits.
