North Mahaska stayed within striking distance of Class 1A No. 5 Lynnville-Sully for the first four innings. But the Hawks took advantage of walks and timely hits to earn a 10-1 victory and remain atop the South Iowa Cedar League standings.

Lynnville-Sully (20-3) led 3-0 after the first two innings. North Mahaska was able to cut the lead to 3-1 with a tally in the bottom of the fourth. The Hawks then put up four runs in the fifth, one in the sixth and two more in the seventh to seal the win.
