Mohawks shutout ICA

DES MOINES — The Moravia Mohawks picked up a 5-0 shutout victory over Iowa Christian Academy on Thursday, as they improved their overall record to 7-12.

Moravia opened up the game out of the gate with a four-run first inning.

Tyler Knapp hit a two-out double to centerfield, plating Avery Waybill after Waybill had drew a two-out walk to reach the bases.

Knapp would score when Jake Martin hit a single to centerfield in the next at-bat. Martin would cross home plate with a two-out, two-run home run to centerfield by Austin Wilson, giving the Mohawks a 4-0 lead.

Moravia scored what would be their final run of the game in the top of the second, when Griffin Cosgrove scored as Briar Cochran reached first base on an error by the third baseman.

Thursday’s game against Iowa Christian Academy was shortened to five innings due to weather.

Moravia (7-12) was in Pekin to wrap up their regular season schedule on Saturday.

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
