The Praire Home with Bunceton baseball team had some successes Sept. 22 against Higbee.

"We finally stepped up and played a complete game tonight,“ coach Trevor Huth said. ”We hit with runners in scoring position and moved runners over as needed throughout the game. We played defense behind our pitcher and definitely have some momentum moving forward into in a big week."

The team then played Calvary Lutheran on Thursday.

"We came out and started the game hitting the ball hard,“ Huth said. ”We scored one run early to take the lead and then took a couple steps back and relaxed and let Calvary stay in the game. We finally came alive late in the top of the seventh to take the lead. Great pitching on the mound tonight and team work behind him."

They played New Franklin on Friday and earned a win.

"[It] was a great game all around for us for seven full innings,“ Huth said. ”We played great defense behind some good pitching on the mound tonight. With that we hit the ball pretty good all night and came alive late to score three runs in the top of the seventh to take the lead again. Solid win against a good new Franklin team."
