Central Softball’s Streak Ends at Twelve

The Central softball team was able to extend their streak to 12, but get no further, as they split their Iowa Conference doubleheader against Dubuque on Saturday. Five-innings was all it took in the first game, as the Dutch won 10 – 2, thanks to a six-run first. Errors in the second game cost Central. After jumping out to a 2 – 0 lead, a pair of runs scored on miscues by Central, then a three-run shot in the seventh over the left-field fence by the Spartans pushed Dubuque over the top, 5 – 2. With the split, four teams are tied atop the standings in the league; Central, Dubuque, Coe and Luther are all 5 – 1 in the Iowa Conference, and Central will try Monday to play a doubleheader at home against Buena Vista.
