CONRAD - The unbeaten NICL West campaign continued for the BCLUW softball team, escaping with a narrow 1-0 win over AGWSR.


An unearned run in the host’s half of the third inning was the game winner. BCLUW’s Parker Scurr coaxed a base-on-balls to begin the at bat, took second and third with sac-bunts by Kiersten Kruse and Olivia Hughes, and scored when Easton Swanson’s ground-ball was mishandled.


The one-run win was the Comets’ fourth in league play and third 1-0 victory along with West Marshall and Grundy Center.


“I think our senior experience helped out tonight. We have a lot of girls that have played two or more seasons and been through the situations. The girls came through with the pressure on tonight, especially on defense. They had base runners and we made the plays,” said BCLUW coach Megan Yantis.
