Redettes beat Knoxville, fall to E-B and Wayne

CENTERVILLE — The Centerville Redettes fell to Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont on Monday before beating the Knoxville Panthers 9-1 on Tuesday.

The Redettes scored two-runs in the second inning in Knoxville Tuesday for an early 2-0 lead.

A four-run fifth inning would give the Redettes a 6-1 lead. Centerville added another run in the sixth and two more in the seventh to take an eight-run lead and the eventual 9-1 victory.

Centerville’s Kiley Micetich pitched the complete game, picking up the win after throwing four strikeouts and allowing five hits.

Freshman Lexi Riggall hit a home run on her way to a two RBI day while going 2-for-4 at the plate.

The Redettes fell in South Central Conference play to the Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont Rockets on Monday in Eddyville. They lost by the score 6-4.

Eddyville scored four runs in the third to take a 4-1 lead. Eddyville added another run in the fourth while Centerville would score a run in the fifth, making the score 5-2. The Redettes recorded a two run sixth inning to lessen their gap to 5-4.

The Rockets jumped ahead by another run in the bottom of the sixth. Both sides would go quietly in the seventh inning to give Eddyville the win by two runs.

Wednesday wasn’t pretty for the Redettes. They gave up 12 runs in one inning of play to the No. 12 (1-A) Wayne Lady Falcons. Centerville would fall by the mercy rule in three innings to Wayne, 12-0.

The Redettes (12-9, 1-3 in SCC) were scheduled to play six straight games this week. Mother nature, however, gave them a break by raining out yesterday’s contest against Clarke, Osceola. Centerville will host Cardinal in a JV/V doubleheader beginning at 5:30 p.m. tonight. They’ll host Van Buren at 10 a.m. in a varsity doubleheader tomorrow.

They’ll have another busy week starting Monday when they travel to Chariton. On Tuesday, they are in Fairfield and Wednesday they host Chariton again. They’ll wrap up play next week in Albia on Thursday and will have Friday and Saturday off.

The Iowegian wants readers to think about the solicitation ordinance that will prevent groups or individuals from entering a roadway to solicit money. 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?"

A. I support the ordinance
B. I do not support the ordinance
C. Not sure
