WOODBURY — A massive first inning powered Cascade (6-1, 1-0) to another District 9-AA win on Monday night.
Of the Champs’ 12 total hits, six went for extra bases and Cascade crushed Cannon County, 13-6.
Monday night’s meeting between Cascade and Cannon County (2-3, 0-1)is the first since the two teams met in the Class 2A sectional series a year ago, which saw the Lions advance to the state tournament.
Logan Green connected on a line drive, two RBI single to start the game on a high note in the top of the first.
Logan Pulley then drew a walk before James Magee mashed another RBI single to left.
Cascade then scored two more runs on wild pitches before a bases-loaded walk brought home a sixth run of the first inning.
A four-run fifth and three-run seventh ensured Cannon County wouldn’t muster up a late-game rally.
Walker Craig went 1-for-3 with three RBIs to his credit, while Logan Green was 1-for-5 with a pair of RBIs.
Jordan Childress finished the game 3-for-4 with two doubles.
Zach Crosslin, Conner Melson, Sawyer Lovvorn and McGee all doubled as well.

Game 2 of the District 9-AA series is scheduled for a 6:30 first pitch on Tuesday night at Cascade.
