On Wednesday, the Hastings College softball team hosted GPAC-leading Morningside in a doubleheader. Both games went down to the wire, but it was the Broncos who captured a pair of dramatic victories.
Hastings College beat Morningside 9-8 on an eighth-inning walk-off hit in game one and 9-8 in another comeback victory in game two.
“It can’t get any better than this, when you face a rival in Morningside and the intensity is up on both sides,” said HC head coach Troy Baker. “These are the games that we were losing a couple weeks ago. We just weren’t getting the clutch hits. Today, for whatever reason, we started putting it together. Hopefully it carries over because now we’re one game away from where Morningside is in the loss column. That’s where we want to be.”
