SUPERIOR — Senior pitcher Mollie Dummer tossed a two-hitter as fourth-seeded Minnesota-Morris stunned top-seeded Wisconsin-Superior 2-0 in their UMAC softball tournament opener Thursday, May 5, before 350 at NBC Spartan Sports Complex.

Dummer (11-8) struck out one and walked one and only faced 23 batters.

The game’s lone runs were scored in the top of the fifth in unusual fashion as the Cougars’ Anna Athey scored on a wild pitch followed by Sierra Stevens stealing home.

Tayler Kraemer (18-6) took the loss despite allowing just four hits and two runs in seven innings. She struggled with her control, with five walks, four strikeouts, two wild pitches and a hit batter.

Zoe Thomson and Jessica Jacobson had the lone hits for UWS (31-9), which had scored 37 runs in the three previous meetings against the Cougars.
