In a couple of games heard on our sister station 951 The Bull last night, the Charles City Comet softball team was in New Hampton for a Northeast Iowa Conference double-header.  In game number one, the Comet bats were on fire as they laced 21 hits, three of which were home runs and blew out the Chickasaws 16-1 in five innings.  Megan Staudt, Sara Martin, and Tayler Schmidt supplied the homers and Martin, Schmidt, and Jamie Sindlinger each had three runs driven in.  Megan Roethler picked up the win inside the circle as she pitched all five innings, gave up the one run on five hits and struck out four.  Game two went quite differently last night as the Comets were trailing after three innings 2-1.  Charles City scored a run in the top of the fourth to tie it up, and then took the lead with a run in the sixth and two more in the seventh to secure a 5-3 win.  Sara Martin had a homer in this game as well for the Comets and she drove in two, Sindlinger had three hits and drove in a pair as well.  Megan Roethler pitched five innings in this game to pick up the win and Tayler Schmidt pitched the final two to earn the save.  The two wins gives Charles City softball an overall record of 17-7 and they are now 8-5 in NEIC play.  The Comet softball team will be in action again tonight at home against Algona.  You can tune into this game right here on KCHA starting with a pregame at about 7:15 and first pitch is scheduled for 7:30.

The Osage Green Devil softball team shut out Nashua-Plainfield last night in a Top of Iowa Conference match-up 12-0 in three innings.  Joslyn Perrin and Kourtney Chambers each collected two hits for the Green Devils in the win.  Osage softball is now 11-10 overall this season and they improve to 5-8 in conference games while Nashua falls to 1-17 and 1-13.  Osage will play again tomorrow in a tournament held in Decorah while Nashua will play at home on Monday night against North Butler for their next action.

The Osage and Nashua baseball teams were in an epic battle last night in Top of Iowa Conference action in Osage.  Nashua jumped out to a 5-0 lead, but the Green Devils chipped away and tied it at five after seven innings sending it into extras.  Osage would hold the Huskies scoreless in the top of the eight and then plated a run in the bottom half for the walk-off win.  Hunter Wagner led the Green Devil offense with four hits last night while his teammate Caleb Bushbaum added three.  Nashua’s offense was led by Devin Koob who had two hits and two runs batted in.  Osage baseball improves to 6-14 overall and 3-8 in conference games while Nashua falls to 9-11 and 6-8.  Osage will next be in action tomorrow in Waukon while Nashua will host North Butler on Monday night.  North Butler baseball was in an extra inning game of their own last night.  The Bearcats were able to slide past Riceville 9-8 in eight innings.  First pitch for the Nashua vs. North Butler game Monday in Nashua will be at about 6pm.

The Rockford Warrior baseball team dropped a non-conference game in Clarksville last night as the Warriors were beaten 5-3.  Kaden Lyman had two hits and two driven in to lead Rockford’s offense and Justin Reams gave up three earned runs on the mound and struck out four.  The Warrior baseball team falls to 3-13 overall this season and they will be in Top of Iowa Conference action tonight at Central Springs.

The Rockford Warrior softball team was able to get a non-conference win over Clarksville last night on the road 8-4.  Alyssa Staudt and Kylie Vollbrecht each had two runs batted in for Rockford who improves to 14-6 overall this season.  The Lady Warriors will hit the road tonight for a Top of Iowa Conference match-up with Central Springs.
