Saturday's tournament in Waverly was one to forget for the Iowa Falls-Alden softballers.
A low scoring game turned into a rout during the final innings of Friday's North Central Conference softball clash between Algona and Iowa Falls-Alden.
South Hardin and Grundy Center were tied at 2-2 in the top of the sixth when the game was called on May 30. The two were scheduled to pick up the rest of that game and play the second time around when they went to Grundy Center.
At the end of the season, South Hardin is going to want to take both games against Grundy Center back. The first time through, the Spartans won on a weather shortened contest (5-4).
If there was ever a time to be leery of a winless team with a roster of nine eighth graders and six freshman, Iowa Falls-Alden Coach Brendon McNulty thought Friday was that moment.
Ben Macy hammered AGWSR’s first home run of the season Thursday in Sheffield. It came from the leadoff spot in the first inning, and gave the Cougars a 1-0 lead.
