Softball: Z-M downs Ellsworth
A day before facing conference rival Kasson-Mantorville, Zumbrota-Mazeppa crossed the border to face Ellsworth and the Cougars rode the pitching of Morgan Olson to a 6-2 win over the Panthers.
Natalie Majerus and Kellie Nordquist each had an RBI for Z-M, while Bella Wagner scored twice for the Cougars.
Olson threw a complete game, striking out 12 and allowing one earned run on six hits.
After hosting the KoMets on Tuesday, Z-M will head to Byron on Friday.
