On Tuesday night the Iowa Mennonite softball team fell at Montezuma in a non-conference matchup with the Bravettes by a 10-2 final. IMS got on the board first when Rubye Ney drove in Suzanna Yoder in the top of the first with a sacrifice fly but Montezuma poured it on early, scoring three times in the first, four times in the second and three more in the third to open a 10-1 lead. IMS would tally once more when Sarah Miller drove in Mia Graber with an RBI double in the fourth but 10-2 was as close as IMS would get on the evening. After the game, IMS head coach Kathryn Ney talked about her team’s night. “Suzanna came up and got a really nice hit. We were on board and really working the count. I thought we came out really strong. I was surprised to see the game turn on us the way it did. I told the players I thought it was the strangest game I had ever seen in my life. It was a combination of hits up the middle and a lot of bloopers.”
Yoder led the way at the plate going two for four with a run scored. Ney and Miller each had one RBI. Leah Bontrager took the loss in the circle going six innings allowing 10 runs, four earned on 10 hits. With the loss IMS falls to 0-8. Montezuma improves to 5-9.
