Eagles, Cardinals Split

Two different sets of birds went home happy after Friday night’s games between Pella Christian and Newton. The baseball team for the Eagles walked away with an 8 – 6 victory. Dillon Branderhorst, Caleb Morgan and Spencer Fynaardt all went 2-for-3 at the plate and scored a run. Morgan added two RBI’s to the cause and Fynaardt added one himself. Andrew VanderHart got the win on the mound and Branderhorst came in relief to pick up the save. The softball game went to extras, and the Cardinals prevailed 6 – 5 in eight innings. Chloe Dembski went 2-for-3, and Jaynee VandeWeerdhof had a double and two RBI’s. The baseball team is off until Monday to play two with Oskaloosa, and the softball team will be participating in tournament action later today.
