ROCKFORD - Both Parkway and Coldwater are known for their ability to put up runs on the softball scoreboard.
So it wouldn't have been much of a surprise if Tuesday's MAC game in Rockford would have been an offensive slugfest.
As it turned out, Parkway took some time to put up the runs while Coldwater suffered a power outage in the Panthers' 9-0 win over the Cavaliers. The win moves the state-ranked Panthers to 9-1 and 2-0 in the MAC. Coldwater drops to 10-4 and 1-1 in the MAC. [More]
