ALLISON – No matter the records, when West Fork and North Butler meet on the baseball field, it always turns out close and entertaining.

Friday’s Corn Bowl Conference tilt was no exception with the first-place Warhawks taking a 2-1 win over the 2-9 home team at Allison.

The difference was a sacrifice fly in the sixth from West Fork pitcher Tanner Tuttle, who threw a two-hitter and struck out five to earn the win.
