The Colby Community College Lady Trojans softball team stretched their win streak to eight Wednesday after coming from behind twice to sweep Barton Community College 9-2 and 5-3 at Carl Adams Softball Field.
Barton's Kat Frakes put the Cougars on top in game one with a first inning two-run blast. It would be their only scoring for the game.
After giving up two runs in the first inning, CCC pitcher Cassi Clouse settled down and threw a complete game. She surrendered two runs on six hits while striking out two. Her record is now 10-1 with a 1.50 ERA.
In game two, a second-inning double by Emma Horsch gave a 1-0 lead to Barton, (7-11, 4-2).
Colby pulled even in the bottom frame when Katie Adler was caught in a rundown between first and second base, and Farnsworth stole home.
In the third, a throwing error allowed the Cougars to capture a 2-1 lead. It was quickly erased, however. Kaitlynn Withers singled and Alexis Kagan lined a homer to left, putting the Lady Trojans up 3-2.
Barton made it 3-3 on a home run by Hailey Pop in the fifth. CCC again responded in the bottom half with a clutch two-run single by Amador that plated Eastman and Farnsworth.
Colby is on the road Saturday in El Dorado for a battle with Butler Community College (17-3, 4-0). The 2016 and 2017 national champions also have an eight-game winning streak on the line. The first pitch of the double header is 2 p.m.
