Solon edges in Columbus in slugfest, advances to 2A final

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- After the 2 teams combined for 26 hits and 21 runs, Solon emerged victorious over Waterloo Columbus winning 12-9 to advance to the class 2A final.

The outcome was anything but predictable as the two teams traded jabs through the first few innings with Solon opening the scoring with 2 runs in the top of the first.  Columbus countered to take a 7-3 lead in the second, but faltered giving up 7 runs in a wild third inning.  The top ranked Solon Spartans never looked back cruising to the victory in the end.

Solon advances to the state final where they'll meet unranked Kuemper Catholic on Saturday.
