East captures its own tournament

(Continued)

NORTH MANKATO —

Maple River (4-1) tallied two runs in the top of the fourth when McKarah Schaefer reached on an infield single, Kristen Huck drew a base on balls and Rahn delivered a two-run single. Schaefer and Rahn laced three hits apiece for the Eagles, who totaled nine for the contest.

“East was really connecting, and we had a few miscues to help them out,” Maple River coach Laura Olson said. “I was pleased with the way we never gave up. A lot of times when your behind by that much you give up offensively, but we came back at them, and that’s a good sign.

“We’ve been pretty good at the things you can work on inside, but the things we needed to be outside for we’re learning, kind of baptism under fire. Overall, you’d like to be in midseason shape right now, but we’re still having a few hiccups."

East erupted for five runs in the fifth frame as Keim-Wolfe, Richards and senior second baseman Carolyn Osdoba all drove in runs.

Maple River plays Monday at Waseca, and the Cougars host Rochester John Marshall Tuesday in a 4 p.m. doubleheader.
