In a game heard right here on KCHA last night, the Charles City Comet softball team was in a Northeast Iowa Conference road contest against Crestwood.  Offense was hard to come by for both teams in the early going as Crestwood had scored the only run of the game heading into the sixth.  The Comets scored four runs in their half of the sixth and that would be more than enough as they were able to win the game 4-1.  Shae Etherington led the Comets by going 4-4 with a run scored and a stolen base and Megan Roethler got the win as she pitched all seven innings and scattered nine hits and struck out four.  The Charles City girls are now 11-4 overall this season and are 5-3 in NEIC play and will travel to Waverly tonight for a NEIC game with the Go-Hawks.

The Charles City Comet baseball team was also in Northeast Iowa Conference action last night as they were on the road in Oelwein.  The Comets struggled on offense as they were only able to get two hits on the night and lost the game 4-1.  Theo Arndt pitched well in the loss as he threw a complete game and gave up two earned runs on three hits and struck out two.  The loss gives Charles City baseball an overall record of 6-6 this season and they fall to 4-4 in conference play.  The Comets will host Decorah tomorrow night.

The Nashua-Plainfield Husky baseball team was in Northwood last night for a Top of Iowa Conference game against the Vikings.  Devin Koob and Jason Fisher each had three hits for the Huskies, but there was too much Northwood-Kensett offense as Nashua fell 7-5.  The Huskies fall to 7-8 overall this season and are 4-5 in conference action.  The Nashua baseball team will be in action again tonight as they will host Janesville.

The North Butler Bearcat softball team took care of Mason City Newman last night on the road in Top of Iowa Conference action 7-4.  Taylor Graven had another sparkling performance on the rubber as she struck out 11 batters for the Bearcats who improve to 9-2 overall and 7-0 in conference play.  The North Butler softball team will be at home tonight to take on Belmond-Klemme.

The Osage Green Devil baseball team was in Top of Iowa Conference action on the road at Central Springs last night.  The Osage defense surrendered at least a run in all but the first inning and did not have the offensive power themselves to overcome that as they lost 7-3.  Noah Krabbe had two hits and two runs scored to lead the Green Devils who fall to 4-10 overall this season and drop to 2-5 in league play.  Next up for Osage baseball will be a home game against Saint Ansgar tomorrow night.

The Osage Green Devil softball team dropped their game against fourth-ranked Central Springs last night 13-3 in six innings.  Kayla Tubbs supplied most of the offense on one swing for the Green Devils as she hit a two-run home run in the fourth inning.  Osage softball drops to 6-6 overall this season and are now 3-5 in Top of Iowa Conference play.  The Green Devil softball team will be in action again tonight at home against Waukon.

The Rockford Warrior softball team held a 5-0 lead over West Fork last night in Top of Iowa Conference play in Rockford before the Warhawks scored three unanswered runs to make things interesting.  The Warriors held on though as they won the game 5-3.  Skylar Schmitt led Rockford’s offense with a double, a run scored and an RBI while Marissa Norby picked up the win inside the circle as she pitched the complete game, struck out five and walked none.  The Warrior softball team will be in action again tonight at home against Nashua-Plainfield.

Offense was on display last night for the Top of Iowa Conference contest between Rockford and West Fork.  Unfortunately it was West Fork’s offense that was more dominant as Rockford fell to the Warhawks 24-11.  Clay Kuhlmeier led the Warrior offense as he finished with three hits and three runs batted in while his teammate Justin Reams had two hits, two runs, and an RBI in the loss.  Rockford baseball is now 1-9 overall this season and 0-7 in conference play.  They will look to snap a seven game losing streak tomorrow night at home against North Iowa.

The Saint Ansgar Saints baseball team continued its great season last night by giving Algona-Bishop Garrigan their first home loss of the season as they beat them 8-4.  The Saints are now 12-3 on the season and they will be back in action tonight at home against Osage.

The Saint Ansgar Saints softball team fell to Algona-Bishop Garrigan last night on the road 8-1.  They fall to 7-7 on the year and they will be in action again tonight at home against Iowa Falls-Alden.
