Owatonna High School Sports had a busy day on Thursday April 28th. The teams were largely successful in dodging the weather. Although it rained and a threat of thunderstorms persisted. It was also difficult to fight against a pair of No. 1 ranked teams.
The Huskies softball lost a game 14-5 to best Mankato West. The Scarlets took an 8-0 lead after two and a half sets. The Huskies had five runs late in the third. Katelyn Bentz started with a single. Izzy Radel doubled up. Parris Hovden hit a deep left center drive that jumped off the defender’s glove for a two-run brace.
Samantha Bogen had an RBI single. Paiton Glynn smashed a ball over the left field fence for a two-run homer and the score was 8-5. OHS put the runners on base in the fourth and fifth innings but did not score. West (9-0, 6-0 Big Nine) scored six in the sixth for the 14-5 final.
OHS right fielders Kendra Bogen and Mehsa Krause made several fine defensive plays. Owatonna (6-5, 5-2) travels to Rochester Mayo on Tuesday. The Huskies host Mankato East for Parents Night on Thursday, May 5 at Morehouse Park.
