  • Canton-Galva earned a split with the defending Class 2-1A state champion to open its season Friday, dropping game one to Ell-Saline 12-7, but winning game two 9-8.
    Jacob Dailey was on the mound for game one for the Eagles and took the loss, though he only gave up five earned runs.
    Canton-Galva had their chances to win, but left five runners on base in the second and third innings.
    Connor Farnham led the Eagles (1-1) with a 4-for-5 performance, which included a double and two RBIs.
    The Eagles came back to win game two, which was shortened to four innings due to darkness.
    Farnham went the distance, giving up only four hits, but walking a number of Ell-Saline batters, which led to runs. He also helped his own cause at the plate with a 2-for-2 showing, which included a double.
    Jacob Struber had a double and two RBIs to finish 2-for-3.
    Jacob Dailey and Ethan Loyd both had two RBIs on a single hit.
    All told, Canton-Galva had 17 hits on the day.
    “We hit the ball so much better than last year,” Eagle coach Kelly Nelson said, “but we have some fielding and BB problems to work on.”
    The Eagles open their home schedule Tuesday against Bennington.
