When Molly Scullion saw teammate Brittany Colombo hit a triple that one-hopped the fence in the first inning Thursday, she said to herself that she wanted to do that, too.
Instead, the senior outfielder for Nazareth Academy did one better. She sent a pitch sailing over the center-field fence for a two-run home run a couple of innings later.
Scullion's blast was one of many displays of hard hitting for the Pandas, as they continued to roll through the Catholic Academies league, defeating Villa Maria, 13-3, in a game called after five innings because of the mercy rule.
In their six league games this season, the Pandas (7-1 overall, 6-0 Academies), ranked fifth in Southeastern Pennsylvania by The Inquirer, have outscored opponents by 66-9.
