An impressive run by a little league softball team from Pella came to an end last night, as the squad came just short of a state title. Mahaska Midwest was defeated by Boone 5-1 last night in the State of Iowa Little League Majors softball championship.
It was the second time in less than a week that the team from Boone had gotten the best of the local squad. Pella had also been defeated 6-3 last Saturday in extra innings during pool play.
The Mahaska Midwest little league softball team is sponsored by Pella Motors and played this season in the Mahaska County Little League. The team from Boone will now advance to a regional tournament in Joplin, Missouri.
