Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa (BBE) broke an early tie, then pulled away in the middle innings to top Upsala 10-0 in its season opener, Tuesday.
Junior Maria Jensen and sophomore Katie Ripplinger picked up hits for the Cardinals.
“For our first game of the season we played OK,” Upsala head coach Marshall Doran said. “Their pitcher was quite good, always strikes and fair speed.”
