Emma Bowman drove in two runs and Kenna Kehoe and Katelyn Wehking combined on a solid performance in the pitching circle as Morris Area / Chokio-Alberta softball defeated Montevideo 9-2 on Thursday, May 9, in Morris.

The Tigers started the scoring with three runs in the second inning. Riley Decker singled in LaRae Kram and Bowman had a two-RBI single, scoring both Carissa Oberg and Decker.

Montevideo scored its only two runs on back-to-back doubles in the fourth inning to trim the deficit to one at 3-2.

In the fifth, Morris/C-A was able to take a commanding lead with four runs on a two-out rally. A single by Kenzie Hockel scored Kehoe from first then Kendra Wevley, running for Hockel, scored on a triple by Kram. Then Kram scored on a single by Oberg and Kylie Swanson, running for Oberg, scored on a Wehking single to center field to give MACA a 7-2 lead.

The Tigers added two more runs in the sixth. Macee Libbesmeier singled in Bailey Marty and Hockel singled in Kehoe for the final 9-2 score.

Kehoe worked 4-1/3 innings, allowing two runs on six hits. She struck out four. Wehking allowed just one hit in 2-2/3 innings and struck out five.

Morris/C-A begins a busy stretch at Willmar Friday, May 10, and then will travel to Sauk Centre for a tough conference doubleheader against 11-2 Mainstreeters. The Tigers will then be back in Morris to play host to Benson Tuesday, May 14 and Minnewaska Thursday, May 16. Both home games set for 5 p.m. in Morris.
