On the softball side of things last night, Oskaloosa got a 9-4 win over Newton. The offensive standouts were Kylee Silliman and Aubrey Miller, who both launched home runs to pad the lead for the Indians. Newton would smack a three-run homer of their own late to make the score 9-4 for the final.
Oskaloosa, the second ranked team in Class 4A, has a huge game in non-conference play tonight against fellow area squad Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont. The 22-2 Indians will have to contend with the #2 team in Class 2A in the Rockets, who knocked off Osky at Lacey Recreation Complex 3-0 in last year’s meeting. This game is a huge preview of two teams that could very well make a return trip to the state tournament in Fort Dodge, and you can hear it live on the Mahaska Zone Network, 99.5 FM and AM 740 KMZN and on kboeradio.com, with our pregame starting right around 7:15 for the 7:30 first pitch.
