In a game heard right here on KCHA last night, the Charles City Comet baseball team was in Cedar Falls for a non-conference contest against the Tigers. With the score at 6-4 in favor of Cedar Falls in the top of the fourth inning, the rain came and forced the players off of the field. There is no make-up date that has yet been announced or if there will even be a make-up date. The Comet baseball team will next be in action tomorrow night as they will host New Hampton for a Northeast Iowa Conference double-header.
The rain last night also effected several other area games. The Nashua-Plainfield Husky baseball and softball teams had their games with Garner-Hayfield-Ventura cancelled. The Husky baseball team will next have a game tomorrow night and will look for their first win at home against West Fork. The Nashua softball team will also be trying to pick up their first win as well Friday night at home against West Fork.
The Osage Green Devil softball and baseball teams could not get their Top of Iowa Conference games against Rockford in last night. The softball game has been cancelled and will not be made up while the baseball game has been rescheduled for July 6th. Next up for Osage softball will be a match-up with Algona tonight at home while the Green Devil baseball team will next play tomorrow night at home against Northwood-Kensett. The Rockford softball and baseball teams will both play tonight at Hampton-Dumont.
The North Butler Bearcat baseball and softball teams had their Top of Iowa Conference games against West Fork postponed. The baseball game will be made up tonight while the softball game will be played on Saturday.
The Saint Ansgar Saints softball and baseball teams were able to get their games in last night as they both were in Top of Iowa Conference action at Northwood-Kensett. In the softball game, the Saints waited a little bit too long for their bats to get going as their three runs in the top of the seventh weren’t enough as they lost the game, 5-4. Caitlyn Juhl led Saint Ansgar with two hits and an RBI and Kylie Juenger drove in a pair of runs. The Saints softball team falls to 13-22 overall and 4-10 in league play. They will play again tonight at home against Forest City. In the baseball game, the Saints had little trouble with the Vikings as they defeated them 15-1 in five innings. Jared Mayer led the Saint Ansgar offense with two hits and five RBIs, Cole Willert, and Collin Kramer each drove in three runs while Ben Boerjan had a pair of hits and a couple of RBIs. The Saint Ansgar baseball team is now 19-5 overall and 11-1 in TIC games. They will next be in action tomorrow night at home against Mason City Newman.
