The Clayton Ridge/Central (CR/C) War Eagles wrapped up their regular season last week with an overall record of 4-14. 

The final week before the playoffs started on July 6, with a doubleheader against the MFL Mar-Mac Bulldogs. In game one, the War Eagles were winning 2-1 heading into the sixth inning when the Bulldog bats exploded for five runs, putting the game out of reach. The War Eagles eventually lost the game 9-4. 

While CR/C actually totaled more hits than the Bulldogs, it was the amount of walks (six), hit batters (two) and stolen bases allowed (five) that were the team’s undoing.

The Central Warriors softball team had another tough week, losing the final four games of the regular season to end with an overall record of 3-13. 

It all started with a doubleheader on July 6, against the conference-leading Turkey Valley Trojans, who won game one 12-2. 

Warrior pitcher Chelsia Larson continued her valiant effort as the team’s main pitcher, but could not overcome the onslaught of the Trojan bats.

Freshman Delaney Scherf performed well offensively for Central, amassing two hits, including a home run, and two RBIs.

Rain dampened much of the MFL MarMac softball team’s schedule last week, postponing a doubleheader with Turkey Valley and canceling one game at North Linn. Even the two games the Bulldogs managed to sneak in on June 23 against Central were played a night later than planned due to inclement weather. 

The Bulldogs made the most of their limited time on the field, though, sweeping Central in a key Upper Iowa Conference match-up.
