Two of the better softball and baseball teams in the OCC met Thursday night in Bellville as Madison traveled to take on Clear Fork.

On the softball side, the Colts broke open a close game in the fifth inning by scoring five runs on their way to an 11-1 win over the defending conference champion Lady Rams. Clear Fork's Morgan Arnett picked up the win with two strikeouts and a pair of walks, allowing just one run on four hits.

Madison's Paige Whisler took the loss, striking out two with two walks and giving up 11 runs on nine hits. The Lady Rams defensive unit didn't help the cause, combining for three errors in the field.

With the win Clear Fork improves to 8-3 overall, 3-2 in conference, while Madison slips to 4-2, 4-1 in the OCC.

On the baseball field, Madison upended the Colts 12-4 for their seventh straight win after dropping the season opener.

The Rams Blake Lampert picked up the win with 12 K's, while not allowing a single walk. Lee Synder took the loss for Clear Fork with four strikeouts and one walk.
