By The Globe Gazette staff

COUNCIL BLUFFS — NIACC opened a weekend series at Iowa Western Saturday with a win in the first game of a doubleheader. The Trojans took the game 7-5.

Brandon Williamson pitched six strong innings to earn the victory on the mound for the Trojans. The Michigan State signee finished with five strikeouts and four walks, and allowed four earned runs on seven hits.

Fox Leum homered and knocked in three runs at the plate, and Ezequias Encarnacion singled, doubled and drove in one.

The second game was suspended after six innings due to darkness with the score tied 4-4. The game will be completed prior to Sunday's doubleheader.
