Helias can't beat Mother Nature

Game with Hanniball called off

The game started in a persistent rain Friday, a little too persistent.

The Helias Crusaders and Hannibal Pirates played two scoreless innings at the American Legion Sports Complex before the game was called.

The Crusaders had baserunners in both innings.

In the first, Jared Bentlage hit a one-out double before a strikeout and pop out ended the threat.

In the second, Helias sandwiched a pair of walks around a single to load the bases with two outs before another pop out.

Helias’ doubleheader today at Nixa against DeSmet and Nixa has been called off due to wet conditions.

The Crusaders are scheduled to return to action Monday at Rock Bridge.
