Thief River Falls eliminated the Osakis Silverstreaks in the Section 8A team playoffs on Tuesday in Crookston with a 6-1.

Osakis’ win came at No. 1 singles from Isaac Maddock who won in a straight sweep.

The Silverstreaks improved their team record this year by two and had a 5-13 record.

“TRF played a good match today in ending our team season. We had a great win from Isaac at 1 singles and very close matches from Micah Moore at 3S and Marcus Wolf/Bryce Moen at 1D. We had a good season improving on our 2 team wins from a year ago and being more competitive within our section. We will miss our seniors Connor, Isaac, Fischer [Torgerson], and Marcus. They were good players and good leaders for us. They will be missed.”

Osakis, along with Minnewaska, plays in the Section 8A individual tournament in Crookston on Tuesday and Wednesday.
