Softball: Cannon Falls sneaks past La Crescent

Cannon Falls’ Gabby Heckmann was the driving force for both the Bombers’ offense and defense in the team’s 1-0 victory over La Crescent Thursday in Cannon Falls.

With Lydia Franken on base in the first inning, Heckmann connected with an RBI double that proved to be the game-winning run. And in the pitcher’s circle, Heckmann gave up three hits and three walks, and struck out six in a complete-game victory.

Franken finished 2-for-2 from the plate, collecting two of the Bombers’ five hits.

Cannon Falls (2-0) heads to Dodge Center to play Triton on Monday.
