The Trojans never looked back after taking a 3-0 lead off a three-run home run by Caleb Hanley in the bottom of the first as they cruised to a 10-0 win in five innings over in-county rival Vardaman.
Bruce scored 10 runs off 9 hits while Vardaman could only string together 4 hits on the night that left two runners on in scoring position for the Rams.

"We were coming of back-to-back one-run losses so the girls were down, but did a good job to come out and get a lead early," said first-year Lady Trojan head coach, Seth Burt.
"Taylor Moore set the tone for us by getting on base early, Raven Nabors hit the ball really well for us, but I felt like it was a good total team effort."
Bruce improves to 2-3 on the year with the win.
