FREEPORT — The 11-12 Rochelle A All-Stars jumped out to an early lead and held on for the 5-2 victory over Morrison in Rochelle’s first game of the District 19 Tournament on Sunday afternoon.

The All-Stars scored two runs in the top of the first inning thanks to a two-out throwing error that led to a run and opened the door for an RBI single off the bat of Andrew Johnson.

Morrison tied things up in the second inning, but Rochelle took the lead again in the top of the fourth inning after Cody Johnson drove a ball deep into the right field corner and came all the way around to score when the ball was mishandled.

Johnson was credited with a double and an RBI, while Andrew Johnson also scored on the play.
