The Oshkosh North Spartans softball team had been looking for a win as of late.
They got one on Wednesday at Oshkosh North.
The Spartans erupted for a seven-run sixth inning to down the Fond du Lac Cardinals 10-6 in a Fox Valley Association matchup.

But Oshkosh North would not be outdone, rallying for seven runs to take the lead back and hang on for a big victory.
The Spartans had some help in the win, as the Cardinals tallied five errors to North’s one.
