Hutchinson, KS-Twice this season, the Broncbusters have played arguably their best defensive game against Hutchinson. But both times, Garden City couldn't muster any offense.

Sophomore Naomi Waithira scored a pair of goals, and the Blue Dragons completed a season sweep of the Broncbusters with a 3-0 victory Saturday night at Don Michael Field.

Incredibly, Hutchinson outshot Garden City 18-0, marking the second time this season that the Broncbusters were held without a shot against the Blue Dragons.

Waithira got Hutchinson on the board in the 32nd minute when she blasted home a feed from Addi White. The score stayed that way until the early stages of the second half when Angela Rader's rocket ripped past Kaylee Keller, putting the Blue Dragons up 2-0. Meantime, Waithira finished off her big day with a goal in the 86th minute.

Keller recorded seven saves for the Broncbusters, who dropped to 1-12 on the season and 1-8 in conference play.

Garden City is back home on Wednesday against Cloud County with a 3:30 p.m. start time.
