A night after Coach George Wares racked up his 1,000th win of his career, his Central softball team split another Iowa Conference doubleheader, this time with Buena Vista. Trisha Smith was on the mound for the Dutch in game one and was rocked for 12 runs in 2 2/3 of an inning in a 15 – 7 Beavers win in five frames. Kaitlyn Matzen went 2-for-2 at the plate and drove in four runs. The Dutch committed three errors in the nightcap but still prevailed 9 – 5. Central trailed 3 – 0 going into the fifth, but put up six runs to take the lead for good. Central is now 24 – 6 overall and 4 – 2 in conference play. They will next host Loras this Saturday.
