WINFIELD — The Winfield-Mt. Union softball team won a shortened game on Tuesday night in a SEISC North Division matchup against Iowa Mennonite. The Wolves won 4-1, scoring all four runs in the second inning, and got through five innings before the lightning delay eventually finished the contest. Madie Anderson threw a five-inning no-hitter in the win.

IMS scored the first run of the game, plating one in the top of the first, but W-MU took their first lead in the second inning and never let up.

Four different Wolves had RBIs in the second inning. Jobey Malone, Carlee Sloan, Keetyn Townsley and Anna Anderson all brought in one.

Malone finished 1-2 with one RBI in the win. Townsley and Anna were both 1-3 with an RBI. Naya Silva was 1-2.

Madie had a rare stat line, giving up more runs than she did hits. She gave up the one unearned run on no hits and no walks, striking out six batters along the way.

W-MU is now 13-7 overall. The Wolves will be at West Burlington tonight (Wednesday) for a SEISC cross-over game.
