IWSL softball teams beat the heat

The five teams in the Iowa Women's Softball League battled each other and battled the heat Sunday with some interesting results.

Three of the five games were shortened to five innings with the temperature in the mid-90's and another game ended in a scoreless tie.

Ironside Apparel and Hawkeye Convenience Stores battled to a 0-0  deadlock in the first game at Mount Mercy, with both sides flashing  some stellar pitching and defense.

Hawkeye Convenience Stores blanked Emil's Hideaway, 8-0, in the middle game. And Emil's Hideaway turned around and topped Ironside Apparel,  7-1.

Metro Sports Report swept its doubleheader from Bosch Financial, 2-1  and 12-6, at Simpson College in Indianola.

Emil's Hideaway rules the IWSL

Terrific defense and strong pitching were the order of the day in the Iowa Women's Softball League games at Mount Mercy on Sunday.

Unfortunately for the teams that were supposed to play at Simpson College, wet weather won the day in Indianola.

Emil's Hideaway won both of its games at Busse Field in Cedar Rapids, topping Ironside Apparel and Hawkeye Convenience Stores. Hawkeye Convenience Stores defeated Ironside Apparel in the other contest.

Bosch Financial and Metro Sports Report were rained out at Simpson.
