Young Mohawks fall to Eddyville

MORAVIA — Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont took advantage of a young Moravia squad en route to the 9-0 win in baseball action Wednesday night in Moravia. For five innings, the Mohawks hung tough and trailed only 5-0 heading to the sixth despite starting seventh eighth and ninth graders.

Rain came before the Mohawks had a chance to bat in the seventh, forcing the game to be called at that point with the game reverting back to the last completed inning.

The four EBF runs in the sixth made the score 9-0, but the three runs they added in their final at-bat didn’t count in the final score.

Rockets controlled the game from the start even though they didn’t put it away until late. Jackson Voyles led off the game with the first of his three hits and would score an unearned run to put EBF up 1-0 after one.

Moravia had its best chance to score as Quinton Casteel reached on an error to lead off the Mohawk fifth. He would reach third on a wild pitch, but a 1-3-2 double play by the Rockets ended the inning.

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
