Northeast Softball falls in Kirkwood Doubleheader

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa – The Northeast Community College softball team took a 4-3 lead over No. 8 Kirkwood Community College in Game 1 of a doubleheader on Monday, but it wasn’t enough. 

The Eagles fought back to take Game 1, 10-8 and Game 2, 10-0 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. 

Jade Koch (Norfolk, Neb.) hit a three-run home run in the top of the third to give the Hawks (10-24, 4-18 ICCAC) a 4-3 lead, but the lead didn’t last long as the Eagles answered with six runs in the bottom half of the inning. 

Koch went 3-for-3 with a walk, two runs and a home run in Game 1. Brianna Aguilera (Pierce, Neb.) was 2-for-4 with two runs. 

It was all Kirkwood in Game 2 as they rushed out to an 8-0 lead after two innings. 

Abby Balfour (Nebraska City, Neb.) had a double in the loss. 

The Hawks host Iowa Central Community College for a doubleheader at 2 p.m. Wednesday at Ta-Ha-Zouka Park in Norfolk.
