It turned out to be both, and Edwards was mobbed by second base by his teammates in their final home game of the season.
“This was good for our guys, especially the seniors,” Morris coach Todd Kein said. “They won the last game they will suit up for on this field, they beat a conference rival and came from behind to do it. It’s been a few years since we have won the season series against Yorkville, so this is definitely one for them to remember.”
For Yorkville (12-15, 3-7), it was one to learn from.
“We are starting four sophomores,” Yorkville coach Scott Luken said. “Cole Yearsley is only a sophomore, but he has four or five home runs in conference games this year. He’s really been locked in at the plate. It was a great start, but then we didn’t get much more.
“Give credit to Morris on that. Their pitcher did a good job of keeping us off balance and they made some good defensive plays. We made a couple mistakes and they took advantage of them.”
