In a couple of games heard right here on KCHA last night, the Charles City Comet softball team hosted Waverly-Shell Rock in a Northeast Iowa Conference double-header. In game one, the Comets poured it on and were able to win via the mercy rule, 10-0 in five innings. Tayler Schmidt had a grand slam in that first game to help propel Charles City to the victory. Sami Heyer was the winning pitcher. In the second game, it looked like the first game early as the Comets scored three runs in the bottom of the first inning to take an early 3-0 lead. Charles City got another run in the second to extend the lead, but Waverly chipped away in the middle innings and pulled to within one run in the seventh, but the Comets were able to hang on and win game two 5-3. Heyer was again the winning pitcher for the Comets and Ciana Sonberg led the offense with three hits. The second-ranked Charles City softball team is now 7-0 overall this season and they are 4-0 in the NEIC. They will play again tonight at Cedar Falls and you can tune into the game right here on KCHA starting with a pre-game at 6:45 and first pitch is scheduled for 7pm.
