More than two weeks after the game started, Mark Morris finally wrapped up a key 2A Greater St. Helens League softball win on Monday.

Mark Morris moved back into first place with a 7-6 win over Woodland in 11 innings. The game was the resumption of an April 12 game that was suspended after 10 innings with the teams tied 6-6.

Michella Freeman drew a bases-loaded walk with two outs to score Shyanne Sellers in the top of the 11th. Makenzie Henthorn then struck out the side in the bottom of the 11th.

Mark Morris (11-3, 12-1) leads the 2A GSHL by a half game over Ridgefield (14-3, 11-1). The Monarchs have three league games left while the Spudders have four. The teams split two games against each other.
