Mozzetti outduels Deeg in extra holes to become Elk River Invitational champ

• ELK RIVER INVITATIONAL: Abbie Mozzetti didn't have a full complement of teammates around her. So the White Bear Lake senior decided to make the 17-team Elk River Invitational her own personal showcase. Mozzetti beat defending Class 3A champion Cassie Deeg of Stillwater in a four-hole playoff to win the event after both players completed the Elk River Country Club Course in an even-par 72. Stillwater won the team competition with a score of 323. White Bear Lake did not have four players and the team finished with an incomplete.


• NEW LIFE ACADEMY 4, MARANATHA 1: The four-time defending Class 1A champion Eagles took over sole possession of first place in the MCAA by handing the Lions their first conference loss of the season. Nicole Johnson tripled and drove in two runs for New Life.

• NORTH BRANCH 4, TOTINO-GRACE 3: Alley Carlson hit a one-out triple in the bottom of the seventh inning and scored the game-winning run on a sacrifice fly by Kari Berggren.

• SPRING LAKE PARK 1, IRONDALE 0: Aimee Thunborg went 2-for-3 and Leah Pollesch drove in the game's only run with a single in the bottom of the seventh inning as the Panthers handed Irondale its first shutout and first North Suburban loss of the season.


• BENILDE-ST. MARGARET'S 2, SPRING LAKE PARK 1: Benilde pitcher Jimmy Heck continued his stellar play of late, pitching a six-hitter and striking out 11. His counterpart, Jake Matthys, was nearly as good, giving up two runs on five hits with 10 strikeouts. Hockey hero Grant Besse was the offensive star for the Red Knights, driving in a run and scoring the game-winner after walking to lead off the top of the seventh inning.
