Deforest falls to Holmen in softball sectional

Watertown ends Verona’s softball season, 7-1

The DeForest Norskies tried to make a miraculous comeback against Holmen in the girls’ softball sectional Tuesday, but Holmen was ready with a comeback of their own.

The Norskies lost to Holmen 10-9.

DeForest was down 9-8 in the bottom of the sixth when Morgan Harbortt ripped a ball down the line in left with runners on to tie up the game at 9-9.

But in the top of the seventh,  Cassondra Schmit gives the Vikings the lead for good. Her RBI single makes it 10-9 to give Holmen the victory.

Holmen will plan the winner of La Crosse Central and Verona for the sectional title.

They were rained out Tuesday, but will play Wednesday in Verona.
