Silverstreaks cement spot atop Prairie

Email News Alerts

A 68-55 win for the Osakis girls’ basketball team over West Central Area on Thursday helped it reach 10-0 against Prairie Conference opponents this season.


While the Silverstreaks still have a perfect record against conference foes, the win gave every other team at least two losses in the Prairie Conference standings. But WCA still made things interesting down the stretch Thursday as they cut Osakis’ lead down to only eight points with four minutes left in the game.
