Motl ignited Stingers’ rallies in the first, third and fifth innings with a leadoff walk, leadoff single and one-out walk, and came around to score all three times.
The Stingers’ centerfielder also drove in a run in the sixth, with a double to score Billy Quirke and put Willmar up 5-1.
Storm Wilson had an RBI single in the first and drove in another with a sacrifice fly in the fifth.
