Redettes sweep games at own Classic

The Centerville Redettes won all three of their games at the softball classic they hosted on Saturday.

The Redettes defeated Moulton-Udell 12-0, Woodward Granger 16-0 and Pella 9-4, which pushes them to seven wins so far this season.

Centerville opened the day with Woodward-Granger. There, the Redettes recorded 15 hits for 16 runs to pick up the shutout rout. Kiley Micetich claimed the win, allowing just two hits in the contest.

"We made some plays behind her and Kiley was in command and hitting her spots,” Belloma said. "It was a strong game for her.”

From there, the Redettes would best Pella 9-4 in the second game. Pella had a 1-0 lead after one inning, but Centerville would recorded a five-run second and a two-run third to take a commanding 7-1 lead after three innings of play.

Colleen Boyle allowed just two hits as she picked up the victory from the circle for the Redettes.

To close out the classic, Centerville beat Moulton-Udell 12-0. Leah Scott pitched the complete four inning game with two strikeouts and allowing four hits.

Coming into Saturday’s classic, Centerville recorded two wins in Moulton-Udell on Thursday. The Redettes posted a combined 33 runs in their two-game shutout over the Lady Eagles on Thursday. Moulton managed only three hits between the two contests.

On Friday, Centerville’s Micetich and Scott would combine for a no-hit victory, winning 10-0 over the Moravia Lady Mohawks.

Exiting the classic, Centerville would pick up their second loss of the season, but to a tough-conference foe. The No. 2 Clarke Indians would jump out to a quick 3-0 lead after the first inning of play on Monday in the South Central Conference opener. After that, though, the Redettes would hold them scoreless.

Centerville’s Sara Howard and Lexi Riggall would come around to score in the top-of the fifth. But, the Redettes wouldn’t be able to bring across a game-tying or go-ahead run as they would fall by one run.

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?"
