WEST BURLINGTON - The Kirkwood Eagles needed to win their weekend  series against Southeastern to win the conference baseball title, but  their hopes were dashed Friday in West Burlington.

The fourth-ranked Southeastern Blackhawks swept the 11th-ranked  Eagles, 9-1 and 3-2, to clinch the conference title.

Kirkwood hosts Southeastern in another doubleheader Saturday at 1  p.m., but the Eagles have been eliminated from title contention and  have fallen into third place.

Southeastern tops the ICCAC standings at 22-4. NIACC has jumped into second place at 19-6-1, with Kirkwood now third at 17-6-1.

Kirkwood got only five hits in the 9-1 loss in the opener and had only  four hits in the 3-2 loss in the nightcap. Kal Youngquist hit a home  run for the Eagles in Game 2.

Cameron Leff (7-2) allowed five runs in five innings and took the loss  in the opener. Peyton Long (2-2) allowed only two earned runs in eight  innings in the nightcap, but absorbed the loss despite having 12  strikeouts.
