In a double-header with plenty of MIAA conference implications, neither Western (16-19, 7-3) or Northwest (16-10, 7-3) could gain a game advantage as they split the two games.

Game one saw the Griffons attack Northwest early, scoring five runs in the first three innings. Then a three-run inning, featuring a Lonnie Groves solo home run and a Gabi Carter two-run shot, finished the game in five innings.

Game two saw Rachel Smith for Northwest pitch a complete game shut-out to avoid the sweep. Kiana Baderdeen drove in the winning-run in the bottom of the fifth with a double.

Both teams are on the road this weekend. Wester plays Central Missouri and Northwest plays Southwest Baptist, Friday. The two teams then swap opponents on Saturday.

A cloudy start to your Thursday across northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri. Temperatures slowly warmed up into the upper 40 and lower 50's by the afternoon. We will be watching a storm system for the weekend which could bring us a mix of rain and snow.
