ROCHESTER, Minn. - The ninth-ranked Kirkwood softball team belted its two opponents by a combined score of 42-1 in the season openers Friday in Rochester (Minn.).

Kirkwood men lose showdown to DMACC

BOONE - The Kirkwood men's basketball team will have to settle for second place in the ICCAC conference this season after losing to DMACC, 66-60, in a showdown for the league title Thursday night.

The Eagles (22-6, 8-3) needed a victory to pull into a tie with DMACC (24-4, 10-1) with one game left in the regular season. Instead, the second-ranked Bears now own a two-game lead over the eighth-ranked Eagles and cannot be caught.

DMACC will be the No. 1 seed in the conference tournament and Kirkwood will be the No. 2 seed. If they both reach the tournament finals, the game would be played on DMACC's home court in Boone.

Matt Lassen pumped in six 3-pointers and scored 22 points for Kirkwood. Ajay Lawton hit three triples and scored 20 points, but the rest of the club combined for only 18 points.

Kirkwood softball opens in Minnesota

The Kirkwood softball team is heading north this Friday to escape the cold and snow instead of heading south to begin the 2015 campaign, but there's no reason to question their sanity.

The ninth-ranked Eagles will be playing two games Friday inside a bubble in Rochester, Minn., against NIACC and Rochester Tech.

"The good thing about it is, it will be dry but it probably will be 40 degrees," Kirkwood Coach Joe Yegge said Wednesday as the snow fell in Cedar Rapids.

This will be a long one-day excursion for the Eagles. They'll leave for Rochester Friday morning, play their games at 5 p.m. and 7 p.m., then turn around and come home.

Kirkwood returns eight experienced players who helped the Eagles finish 52-8 last season, but three of the top four pitchers are freshmen who are just starting their college careers.

No.9 Eagles rally by Southwestern

The Kirkwood Eagles struggled for much of their game Saturday and trailed Southwestern 39-33 with 14 minutes left at Johnson Hall.

At that point, few Kirkwood fans would have bet the ninth-ranked Eagles would win by 17 points.

"I wouldn't either," said Coach Bryan Petersen.

They found a way, however.

Ajay Lawton popped in all 15 of his points in the second half and Ron Singleton set the tone on defense as Kirkwood rallied for a 70-53 victory in an ICCAC conference game.

Kirkwood used a 12-0 run to grab a 45-39 lead on a 3-pointer by Lawson and the Eagles kept motoring from there, belting the visitors from Creston by a 37-14 margin in the final 14 minutes.
