In a couple of games heard right here on KCHA last night, the Charles City Comet softball team was on the road for a Northeast Iowa Conference double-header with Oelwein. The Comets overpowered the Huskies in both games as they won game one 16-0 in three innings and took game two 13-0 in four innings. The two wins gives the Comet softball team an overall record of 27-3 and they move to 14-2 in the NEIC which is tops in the league as Crestwood was swept by Waverly to give the Cadets three conference losses on the season. Charles City will wrap up NEIC play tomorrow night at home against Decorah.

The Charles City Comet baseball team was at home last night in non-conference action against North Fayette Valley. The Comets once again had some mistakes on defense which allowed North Fayette to score three unearned runs which they used to their advantage to win the game 5-2. Theo Arndt led the Comet offense with a pair of hits and an RBI, Colton Slinger drove in the other run for Charles City. The Comet baseball team is now 9-13 overall this season and they will play again tonight at Cedar Falls.

The Osage Green Devil baseball team took on Forest City on the road last night. Osage was over-matched in the game as they lost it 14-1 in five innings. The Green Devil baseball team is now 9-12 this season and they will look to get back on track tonight at Rockford.

The Osage Green Devil softball team was in Forest City last night as well to take on the Indians. This game was tight most of the way as Forest City held a 3-2 lead heading into the bottom of the fifth, but were able to break it open with seven runs in the next two innings and beat Osage 10-3. For the Green Devils, the loss gives them an overall record of 10-18 and they will be on the road again tonight at Rockford.

The North Butler Bearcat softball team was dominant last night in their game at West Hancock. The Bearcats won 13-0 in five innings as they had big innings in the third and the fifth. The North Butler softball team is now 19-5 overall this season and they’ll be in Top of Iowa Conference action tonight at West Fork.
