Senior Darrah Shields scored three first-half goals to pace the Priory girls' soccer team to a 6-0 romp over No. 10 seed Pacific Collegiate (11-5) in the opening round of the Central Coast Section Division III playoffs on Wednesday in Portola Valley. The No. 7-seeded Panthers (13-5-2) now advance to face No. 2 Santa Cruz (12-4-3) in a quarterfinal on Saturday.

Shields got things rolling with 25:27 left in the first half with a penalty kick. With 18:48 remaining, Shields left-footed a rocket from outside the penalty box for a 2-0 lead. Senior Eugenia Jernick made it 3-0 after beating the keeper on a 1 v 1 with 16:05 left and Shields made it 4-0 in stoppage time with another long-range goal.

Priory's offensive fireworks in the first half didn't carry over into the second half despite controlling the ball much of the time. With 9:50 left, freshman Siobhan Gillis made it 5-0 when she launched a long shot from the left side that bounced up and hit the crossbar, then angling back down into the corner of the net. In stoppage time, junior Anna Gillis matched her sister by tapping in a loose ball in front of the goal.
