FOLEY — After a week of postponements due to weather, the Osakis tennis team got in a match at Foley on Tuesday where the Silverstreaks fell in a 6-1 final.

Top singles player Isaac Maddock remained undefeated for Osakis as he breezed through his match in a 6-0, 6-0 final. Foley was too much at the four other contested spots as they won in straight sets by only giving up one game.

“It was nice to have a match today as we have had four postponements due to weather,” Osakis head coach Ryan Maddock said. “It was our first match in 16 days. Foley is a veteran team with a lot of experience and that showed today. I was proud of our guys' efforts and thought they did better than what their scores showed. Sometimes it can be hard for inexperienced players to get on the scoreboard when they are playing an experienced team. It just felt good to be able to be outside and play again. Isaac had a strong showing at one singles.”
