In a game heard right here on KCHA last night, the Charles City Comet softball team took on league leading Waverly-Shell Rock in a Northeast Iowa Conference showdown. The Comets struck first in as Shae Etherington had an RBI double that scored Megan Staudt in the top of the third inning. Waverly tied it in the bottom of the third and then scored two runs in the bottom of the sixth that Charles City could not answer and the Go-Hawks took the game 3-1. Staudt and Jamie Sindlinger had two hits apiece as the Comets managed just six hits in the ball game. Megan Roethler pitched well as she threw the complete game, gave up two earned runs and struck out seven. The loss puts the Comets at 11-5 this season and they are now 5-4 in NEIC play.

First pitch from Sportsman’s Park will be at about 7:30.

The Nashua offense out-hit Rockford in the first game 6-4, but the Warriors walked eight times and took advantage of some Nashua miscues in the field. In game two, the Warrior offense was hot as they pounded out eleven hits including home runs by Fallon Marth and Marissa Norby.
