Mount Mercy women win golf title

PEOSTA - Madison Goodfellow and Meg Monson both shot 6-over-par 77's Sunday to help Mount Mercy take top honors at the Loras Spring Invitational at Thunder Hills Country Club in Peosta.

Goodfellow was declared the winner on the score sheet and Monson was listed in second place. Kelsey Dircks shot an 81 for the Mustangs.

Mount Mercy beat Clarke by five shots, 333 to 338, in the seven-team field.


Bees sting Kernels in 12 innings

BURLINGTON - The Cedar Rapids Kernels fell to the Burlington Bees in 12 innings Sunday afternoon, 2-1, in a soggy Midwest League game before 562 fans at Community Field.

Michael Hermosillo's walk-off RBI single in the bottom of the 12th inning scored pinch-runner Erick Salcedo. Hermosillo's hit into left-center came with two outs.

Sam Clay (0-1) took the loss for the Kernels, allowing one run on two hits in 1 2/3 innings. He struck out two and walked one.

Four Kernels pitchers combined to strike out 18 Bees. Felix Jorge struck out nine in five innings, allowing one run on five hits. Cam Booser punched out three hitters in two perfect innings. Trevor Hildenberger went three innings, allowing no runs on one hit while striking out four.


Goerdt's 3 homers power Kohawks

Coe senior Michael Goerdt was being mobbed by his teammates at home plate Saturday at Daniels Park when one of the Central College players asked a good question.

"What are we pitching to HIM for?," the Central player wondered aloud in frustration.

The Dutchmen did not learn their lesson and Goerdt made them pay dearly.

Goerdt set a school record with three home runs in a single game and belted the game-winner with nobody out in the bottom of the ninth for a dramatic 7-6 victory in the nightcap of an Iowa Conference doubleheader.

Central won the first game, 8-0.


RoughRiders swept in USHL playoffs

The Cedar Rapids RoughRiders failed to score on six power-play opportunities Saturday night and bowed out of the USHL playoffs before 2,164 fans at the Ice Arena.

The Dubuque Fighting Saints beat the RoughRiders, 2-1, and swept the best-of-5 series in the Eastern Conference semifinals.


Kernels fall to Bees in opener

BURLINGTON - The Burlington Bees topped the Cedar Rapids Kernels, 4-3, Saturday night before 765 fans at Community Field in Burlington.

Burlington scored three of its four runs in the first two innings and held the Kernels to just six hits.

Austin Robichaux (1-1) recorded his first Midwest League win. The Bees right-hander allowed two runs on four hits and one walk while striking out three.

Michael Cederoth (1-1) suffered the loss for Cedar Rapids. Cederoth allowed four runs on six hits and two walks while striking out six in his second start of the season.

Burlington (6-4) struck first with a two-run first inning. Jake Yacinich led off with a walk for the Bees. Caleb Adams followed with the first hit of the game, a single through the right side, giving the Bees runners on first and second with no outs.
