Mohawks win two straight

MORAVIA — The Moravia Mohawks have won three out of their last four contests, as the young squad with just one upperclassman finds themselves two games under .500.

The Mohawks came back from a 4-0 deficit to beat Central Decatur 13-9 on Monday. They would pick up their second consecutive win on Tuesday, when they claimed a 6-2 win in Orient-Macksburg.

On Monday, Central Decatur fired off four runs in the top of the first inning, putting the Mohawks down 4-0 early. However, Moravia would respond with four runs of their own to tie the game in the bottom half of the first.

Briar Cochran, Avery Waybill, Logan Perry and Tucker Babbitt would all come around to score after a collection of two walks, two singles, a passed ball and an error.

Moravia would score one run in each of the second and third innings to take a 6-4 lead.

In the fifth, the Mohawks would post another four-run inning to take a 10-4 lead. Cochran, Waybill, Quinton Casteel, Matt Varese and Griffin Cosgrove came around to score in the inning.

Central Decatur would attempt to work their way back into the game, scoring five runs in the top of the sixth inning.

Moravia responded with three runs in the top of the sixth to widen the gap a little more, to a 13-9 lead. That’s where the score stayed, as Moravia retired the side in the top of the seventh to secure the win.

On Tuesday, the Mohawks scored two-runs in the top of the third, and three more in the top of the fourth, to break was a 1-1 tie.

Orient-Macksburg would score another run in the bottom of the sixth, but both teams would go quietly in the seventh inning as Moravia won 6-2.

Moravia (3-5) hosted Davis County yesterday. They’ll be in action again at home with Moulton-Udell on Friday before travel to Montezuma on Saturday.

The Centerville City Council in June by a 5-0 vote passed the first reading of just such an ordinance. Public pressure and during a subsequent special meeting, the council voted 3-2 to table the ordinance. A second special meeting to discuss the solicitation ordinance is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 7 at City Hall. So, the question of the week is, "Do you or do you not support the ordinance to prevent solicitation of funds in city streets?"
