(Harlan) It was a pitcher's dual through the first four and half innings with Taylor Schaben of Harlan and Maggie Hawley of Missouri Valley firing shutouts the first four complete frames.
Harlan cracked the scoreboard first in the bottom of the fifth inning when Ashley Kolbe singled and scored a run. Bri Nelson and Kelsey Croghan also would score for the Cyclones to take a 3-0 lead.
The three runs proved to be enough run support behind Taylor Schaben's nine strikeout game. Schaben earned here second win of the season allowing two runs on seven hits and one walk.
Harlan is 2-1 on the year while Missouri Valley falls to 1-2.
