McGann-Mercy showed no mercy for Southold yesterday on the softball diamond, taking a 9-0 lead in the first inning as the Monarchs batted around in their first at-bat.

Southold was missing six of their regular players and had a rough time containing Mercy’s mighty bats.

Southold couldn’t find a hit, as Sarah Penny was solid in the circle, pitching a two-hitter. Mercy was relentless and added five more runsto bring the schore to 14-0 after four innings. The game was called on the mercy rule after Southold failed to score in the top of the fifth.

McGann-Mercy’s next home game is Monday, April 16 at 4 p.m. against Islip.
