Oilers throttle Five O's
July 27, 1994

   The race for the Land O'Lakes Western Division flag heated up considerably Sunday at Roosevelt Field as the Five O's suffered a heart-breaking 7-5 loss to undefeated Hartland.
   Down 1-0 in the second inning, the O's scratched out a pair of runs on an infield hit, and run-scoring singles by Erik Olson and Brett Bender.
   Hartland tied the game in the fifth when Chris Schuck singled and was followed by three consecutive walks. Chad Brown then entered the game in relief for the O's, with bases loaded and no outs.
   Brown got out of the inning with the score tied 2-2.
   In the sixth inning, Oconomowoc's combination of Olson and Bender struck again, as Olson singled to left and Bender ripped a shot over the left field fence to put Cooney up 4-2.
   Hartland rallied again in the seventh as Joe Blodiano hit a two-out home run to make the score 4-3. That was immediately followed by a walk and two hits to tie the game at 4-4.
   Oconomowoc seized the lead again in the eighth when Mike Michalsky's sacrafice fly brought Olson home.
   Hartland had yet one more rally left in them. John Sussitti looped a single to left, followed by another from Todd Wildrick. No. 9 hitter Tom Bouchard then dropped the perfect bunt, and when Brown's throw to first went away, both runners scored to give the Oilers a lead they would not relinquish.
   The defeat dropped the O's to 3-1 for the second half, one game back of Hartland and Lannon.
   With five games remaining, Oconomowoc is still very much alive for the division crown, but as the stretch drive beckons, there is no slack left.
   The O's game with Lannon Sunday has been postponed because of the Legion tournament.
