Creston breaks open close game late
For a while Thursday night, it looked like the Creston and Nodaway Valley baseball teams were going to battle it out in an old-fashioned pitcher’s duel as Brandon Phipps and Ryan Williams kept throwing zeros up on the scoreboard.
But the Panthers finally struck for two runs in the third inning, which was more than enough for Phipps, who threw a complete game shutout four-hitter as Creston cruised to a 7-0 win.
Junior Trey Benson got things started with a leadoff single to left and then scored on Cole Crawford’s single up the middle. Later in the inning, Trevor Luther drove in Zach Powers with an RBI double.
