By TIMES-REPUBLICAN STAFF ( , Times-Republican

ST. MARYS - Martensdale-St. Marys' run back into the record book was halted Tuesday by Des Moines East.

The Blue Devils had their 88-game winning streak snapped in a 4-3 loss to the Scarlets.

That winning streak falls short of the 89-game run put together by Portsmouth, N.H. The two schools have swapped the record over the previous season with New Hampshire playing its high school baseball in the spring, before the Blue Devils take to the field for Iowa's summer schedule.

East pitcher Colby Carmichael allowed just three hits and had 13 strikeouts on the night, according to the Des Moines Register. The Scarlets scored all four of their runs in the fourth inning, while M-SM had all three of its in the third.

The Blue Devils have won back-to-back Class 1A state titles. Des Moines East is a Class 4A school.

Vikings find back of net in second OT

Katelyn Behounek scored both STC/EM goals in the game, with assists going to Megan Wanatee and Samantha Frundle. Goalkeeper Sam Earley finished with seven saves as the Trojans outshot their hosts 11-10.

STC/EM (4-14) ends the regular season with Thursday's road game at Grinnell.
