The second game was called because of darkness, but not before Madison Bishop got the win and a no-hitter for MKS. She also helped her team with her bat, as she had a run scored and two RBIs.

Jordan Wood belted in three RBIs on a double. Rebecca Brooks showed off her speed by speeding around the base for two runs. Hayley Turner had a nice hit to bring her out of a hitting slump. Then Jessica Plummer, Breanna Waller and Ashley Getchel showed that dynamite does come in small packages by each scoring once to help MKS to a 6-0 victory over Mason City.

This brought MKS Jewelers to 12 wins on the year, including the last six games, and only five losses.

The team will be playing again on Thursday in Mason City in another doubleheader. After that they will play in a tournament in Clinton on Saturday and Sunday.

"This team is an exciting team to watch for this age of play," coach Joseph Plummer said. "They really put their heart and soul into the way they play, but we are having a great time also, win or lose. These are a great bunch of girls to coach and obviously have great role models as parents to have such positive attitudes. Even though we are not undefeated, this team has been one of my best teams I have ever coached because of their attitudes."
