Things were going smoothly for Roland-Story until a five-run sixth inning for Saydel doomed the Norse to a 5-2 Heart of Iowa Conference softball loss in Des Moines on Monday (6/17).
The setback dropped R-S to 6-11 overall and 2-8 in league play.
Emily Berggren and Madison Geise drove in runs for the Norsemen, who led 2-0 after scoring both of their runs in the top of the third inning. Geise had two of Roland-Story's seven hits. The Norse defense was shaky; R-S committed three errors.
