PAYNESVILLE — Senior Megan Schaefer threw both victories as Paynesville rolled by Atwater-Cosmos-Grove City 5-0 and 7-4 on Friday in West Central South softball.

She tossed a 3-hitter in game one and a 6-hitter in the nightcap. Brooke Wuertz pitched to one batter.

The offense contributed 10 hits in each game facing Falcons’ ace Sydney Larson.

The Dogs jump to 6-0 in the league and 13-0 for the season. They host the BOLD Warriors on Tuesday in a twin bill to end the WCS log.

Sophomore Kayla Schaefer drove in four runs in game two with a triple and a single. The Falcons Hanna Lang had a pair of hits in the late game.
