Osage drops battle to Richland and Camdenton comes up short at Parkview

Osage drops battle to Richland

School of the Osage visited Richland on the pitch Tuesday night and it was a tough result when the final whistle blew as the Indians fell to the Bears 2-1.

Osage suffered its third straight loss after being plagued with some injuries and suspensions, but there is no time to dwell on the adversity with the district playoffs just around the corner.

"We will do our best to finish the regular season strong and prepare for districts as the fourth seed. I'm not crazy about where we are, but it happens to be our reality so I'm hoping we go into districts with a little chip on our shoulder and upset some teams that may take us for granted," Osage coach Jason Long said.

"I think the boys will want to make up for last time and show they have something to prove because at 10-9-1, we are definitely not the caliber of team our record reflects."

Up next for Osage is a trip to Laquey on Thursday at 4:30 p.m. Osage has three more games, all on the road, before districts arrives.

Camdenton comes up short at Parkview

Camdenton was on the road for a conference battle at Parkview Tuesday night and the Lakers came home with a 3-0 defeat. Camdenton (6-8, 1-5 Ozark Conference) hosts West Plains on Thursday night at 4:30 p.m.
