One big inning helped Newell-Fonda knock off one of its biggest conference rivals in a district final softball game on Monday night, as the Mustangs scored three in the fourth to defeat Albert City-Truesdale, 3-1.
Ashley Loos, Andrea Larsen and Alicia Tiedeman all scored in the fourth, and Ashley Hetrick relied on solid fielding from her teammates to record her 18th win of the season.
Albert City-Truesdale had five players who had one hit, but Rachel Henningson was the only Hurricane who had a RBI.
Newell-Fonda (26-10) and AC-T (22-10) will both play this weekend in the regional softball tournament. AC-T will host Sac City at 7 p.m. Friday night, and the Hurricanes would play Southeast Webster in Fort Dodge on Saturday night if they defeat Sac City. N-F will play the winner of WLVA and Manson NW Webster on Saturday night at 8 p.m. at Fort Dodge.
