Oakfield softball suffers first loss, falls 3-1 to Horicon

Horicon 3, Oakfield 1

In a nonconference matchup featuring the second-ranked team in division 2 (Horicon) and the fifth-ranked team in division 4 (Oakfield), the Marshmen handed the Oaks their first loss of the season Saturday in a defensive game.

Horicon’s Megan Tillema accounted for all three of its runs, hitting a solo home run in the second inning to tie the game at 1-1 and then a two-out, two-run triple in the top of the sixth.

“We just didn’t settle in against their pitcher,” Oaks coach Mike Urban said. “We didn’t get too many good swings. But one loss does not make a season.”

Oakfield is a No. 1 regional seed, and hosts (5) Manitowac Lincoln Tuesday in the regional semifinals.
