HOW IT HAPPENED
Morningside scored a run each in the fourth and fifth innings to secure a 2-0 shutout win over the Dordt Defenders on Monday night in Sioux Center.
The Mustangs got a run on three hits in the fourth inning but mussed on a bigger inning as Tianna Soodsma coaxed the final out on a grounder to second base.
The Mustangs added a run in the fifth inning on two hits but Dordt again was able to get out of the frame without more damage being done and a runner stranded for Morningside.
Dordt did mount a threat in the bottom of the seventh inning with a Carley De Roin single to get the tying run to the plate but a pop out and a strikeout ended the game.
Dordt was outhit 10-3.
Tianna Soodsma went the distance and was charged with a pair of earned runs with two strikeouts and she didn’t walk a batter.
Dordt had three hits—one each by Kenzie Cunard, Rachel Evavold and Carley De Roin.
Morningside’s Hallie Misiaszek pitched a three-hitter and struck out four with no walks.
