The Blue Devil softball team lost due to a two-run homer that placed Philipsburg-Osceola in the lead with a final score of 5-3.

Taylor Shildt tossed a six-hitter and also had four hits.  Shildt was the losing pitcher, but struck out six.

Jacqueline Finn got in two hits and a home run.

The game was tied up 2-2 in the third inning. Then the Blue Devils fell a little behind when Philipsburg got three runs in the fourth inning. The Blue Devils added another run in the sixth inning.

“Losing last night hurt, but we definitely worked hard and gave our 100%.  It felt like the game was taken from us a lot of times, but we have to move past it and get Everett tonight,” said Edyn Convery.

The softball team’s record is now 13-6 overall.
