BLUE HILL — The Eagles wore their hitting shoes Thursday as they romped to a 13-1 Class C quarterfinal win over the 10th-ranked Dexter Tigers.
GSA got things started early against Dexter righthander Olivia Gardner, scoring four runs on five hits in the first inning.
Those hits included singles by Leah Mattson and Stevie Theoharidis, a run-scoring single by Alida Peake, a two-run double by Lydia Clapp and a triple by Stephi Davis.
The Eagles pushed the lead to 11-0 in the second inning with singles by Mattson, Theoharidis, Peake, Clapp and Mindy Carter and another triple by Davis.
The Tigers pushed across their only run in the fourth inning as Clapp, who pitched a complete game for the Eagles, gave up a leadoff single to Taylor Gross and a run-scoring triple to Macee Gustin.
GSA added a run in the fifth when Carter singled and scored on a single by Theoharidis.
And the game ended under the 12-run mercy rule after Clapp reached on an error and scored on a pop single by Davis.
Clapp drove in three runs with a double and a single, Theoharidis had four singles and drove in two runs and Davis tripled twice and singled with two RBI.
Clapp pitched a three-hitter, striking out eight batters.
