Softball: Cannon Falls gets by Byron

Cannon Falls improved to 6-1 overall after cruising past Byron 9-3 in Hiawatha Valley League play Thursday in Cannon Falls.

The Bombers’ Brooke Peters crushed the ball against the Bears, hitting a two-run home run in the second inning, followed by a solo shot in the fourth. Taylor Eddy and Gabby Heckmann each had two hits in the victory.

“We’re hitting the ball a little bit, which helps,” Cannon Falls head coach Mike Gunderson said about the team’s recent success.

Lydia Franken was awarded the win for the Bombers, striking out 10 in four innings of work.

Cannon Falls resumes conference play on Monday at Goodhue.
