Norris kept its baseball season alive on Tuesday, defeating Mount Michael 5-4 in the consolation bracket of the Class B state baseball tournament at Papillion's Fricke Field.

Tyler Monroe doubled in the bottom of the sixth inning to give the third-ranked Titans (19-10) a one-run lead, and Colby Behrends closed the door on Mount Michael's season with two strikeouts in the seventh. 

Norris tagged the Knights for three runs in the first inning, led by Grant Gouldin's two-out double that plated two runners. The Titans, with Bryson Schultz on the mound, stayed in command until the sixth inning. 

Mount Michael capitalized on a Norris error, scoring two runs to tie the game. The following inning, Monroe roped his two-out, game-winning double to center field to give the Titans the victory. 

Waverly 11, Elkhorn 6: The No. 1 Vikings, tied with the Antlers in the sixth inning, exploded for five runs over the final two frames to secure a victory in the consolation bracket of the Class B baseball tournament. 

Kyler Randazzo, Kyler Beekman and Trey Frahm collected two hits apiece to lead No. 7 rated Elkhorn in its comeback attempt. The Antlers trailed by four entering their half of the fourth, but used four singles, two walks and a hit by pitch to even the score. 

It was all for naught, Waverly responded with four runs in the sixth and one more insurance run in the seventh to end Elkhorn's season. Now, the Vikings (21-6) will face Bennington (17-5) Wednesday at 4 p.m. at Werner Park.
