The OPRF softball team erased an 11-9 loss to Loyola by slipping past Wheaton Warrenville South 3-2 last week.

The Huskies scattered nine hits, including two doubles by Hannah Press. Alana Weitzenfeld, Erin Flanagan and Jasmine Davis all drove in runs for the Huskies (2-2).

Leah Bry earned the win on the mound, allowing six hits but striking out 10 in seven innings.

“[This was] a much cleaner, more well played game than Monday’s loss to Loyola,” said OPRF head coach Mel Kolbusz.

The hitting by both teams was good in the game against the Ramblers, but the defense was sloppy. The two teams combined to commit a total of nine errors.

Lauren Flannery, Davis and Flanagan finished with two RBIs apiece. Bry yielded five earned runs on 10 hits, while walking five and fanning six.
