The Mid-Prairie Golden Hawk softball team hosted Fairfield in a non-conference doubleheader Wednesday at Carr, Vincent, Gould Field in Kalona. Fairfield won game one 9-1 and Mid-Prairie got the second game 3-2. The Trojans asserted control early in game one with a five run, six hit, second inning to take a 5-0 lead. They scored four more times in the sixth to put the game out of reach. Mid-Prairie’s run came on a solo homer from Cassidy Rourke in the bottom of the sixth. That was one of just two hits allowed by Fairfield starter Allison Rebling in her win.
In game two, Fairfield again took an early lead, scoring twice in the second against Golden Hawk starter Myah Lugar. Things stayed 2-0 until the fifth when Mid-Prairie came through with five hits and three runs including RBI from Kendra Schaefer and Rylee Vercande off of Trojan starter Coty Engle. The three runs proved to be enough for Lugar and the Mid-Prairie defense. With the split, the Golden Hawks are now 5-12 on the year.
