After a 4-0 win over visiting Gordonsville in the first game of a District 8-A double header Thursday, Friendship Christian trailed 2-1 going into the second inning when first-year coach Erica Powell lit into her Lady Commanders.
Chastised, Friendship took it out on the Tigerettes with eight runs in the inning en route to a 14-2 thumping.

Leadoff batter Camille Cross drove in six runs in the nightcap. She put Friendship in front with a two-run homer and swatted a two-run single later in the inning. She sent another two-run blast over the scoreboard in a five-run fifth.
