Warren Central (8-5) trailed 3-2 against West Lincoln entering its final at-bat in the time-limited game. They tied it with three singles, the last by Jenn Smith, that brought in one run.
Morson then singled to center to bring in Smith and Mary Evelyn Hossley with the go-ahead runs. Three batters later, the game was called.
Morson and Smith were among five Lady Vikes who had two hits apiece, and both drove in two runs. Hossley had two hits and scored twice. Tyra Bridges and Sarah Cameron Fancher also had two hits each.
Fancher doubled, and had one RBI and scored a run.
Maddie Pant pitched a five-inning complete game and had four strikeouts.
