A shaky start spelled defeat for the Port Washington softball team in North Shore Conference play Monday.

Visiting Homestead scored four runs in the first inning, added eight in the second and cruised to an 18-8 win in a game called after six innings.

Port rallied to pull within 12-4 in the bottom of the third, but Homestead responded with a five-run outburst in the fourth.

The first-place Highlanders collected 18 hits off a pair of Port pitchers — starter Ali Bichler and reliever Jill VandeBoom.

Amy Keel led Homestead (10-1) with a 4-for-5 effort and drove in three runs.

Port (7-4) had seven hits, including two each by Mikayla Hilton and Kelsey Braam.

Oakfield 4, Grafton 0

The host Black Hawks were edged in a pitchers’ duel Monday.

The nonconference game was scoreless through four innings, as Oakfield’s Ashley Holz and Grafton’s Ali Bartel held batters in check. However, the state-ranked Oaks broke through for solo runs in the fifth and six innings and added a pair of
insurance runs in the seventh.

Holz allowed only two hits in a complete-game performance. She struck out nine and walked one. Bartel worked the first five innings before giving way to Amanda Hunt for the final two.

Grafton fell to 10-3 overall. Oakfield improved to 18-0.
