The Osakis softball team made believers out of a lot of people through a spirited run in the Section 5A playoffs that came up just one game short of a section title game appearance.

The Silverstreaks knocked out Browerville, ACGC and Rush City along the way before ultimately falling 7-4 to Isle on Tuesday night.

"We played our hearts out in this game," head coach John Stigman said. "We just didn't have enough luck and fortune to win it. Our team battled and battled, but we just couldn't get the right rhythm or bounces, which sometimes you need."

Isle jumped out early and never trailed after taking a 4-0 lead in the first inning.

Senior Lauren Silbernick got her sixth start of the tournament and took a tough loss.

Osakis toppled the East's top seed to get to that game a couple hours earlier. Silbernick struck out eight and went all seven innings to pick up the win.

Osakis overcame a 1-0 deficit by scoring three in the third and four in the sixth.

That came after Osakis kept holding onto its section title hopes with a 15-14 win over Atwater-Cosmos-Grove City and a 2-0 win against Browerville last Friday.

Osakis finished the season 19-4 overall and shared the Prairie Conference title with Browerville and Long Prairie-Grey Eagle.
