Central Comeback Halted by Coe in IIAC Softball Tourney

Posted By Sports On May 5, 2012 @ 5:56 am In Today’s Local Sports | Comments Disabled

A comeback that sprang to life with startling suddenness ended just as quickly as No. 19 Coe College held off the No. 6 Central College softball team 3-2 Friday in the Iowa Conference tournament, getting a game-ending double play on an attempted squeeze bunt. Coe (34-9) advances to today’s 1 p.m. final in the double-elimination tournament. Central (32-8) must come back at 11 a.m. against Luther College , who defeated Simpson 5-0 Friday. This morning’s winner must then defeat Coe twice to secure the league tournament title and an accompanying automatic berth in the 61-team NCAA Division III tournament.
