In a couple of games heard right here on 951 The Bull last night, the New Hampton Chickasaws hosted the third-ranked Charles City Comets in a Northeast Iowa Conference double-header. In the first game Savannah Anderson held the high-powered Comet offense to just three runs, but the Chickasaw offense managed just one hit off Sami Heyer and could not get any runs across as they dropped it 3-0. In the second game, New Hampton took an early 2-0 lead as Lauren Frerichs scored in the first inning and Maddi Moorman scored in the second. Kerrigan Tenge held the Charles City offense scoreless through four innings, but gave up two runs in the fifth which had the game tied at two. Charles City would then score a run in the top of the seventh and held on to beat New Hampton 3-2. The Chickasaw softball team falls to 21-11 overall and they finish the NEIC season at 11-7.
