PARKROSE — Oregon lost three games at the 15-year-old girls' softball Sectionals over the weekend.

The Union County girls are representing Oregon as state champions.

Oregon coach Dick Griffin says the team is still alive if it beats Washington today and wins the tiebreaker to advance to Tuesday's championship game.

Griffin said Oregon played much better Sunday.

"We played really good," Griffin said after Sunday's loss. "We had some untimely errors."

Oregon fell 3-2 to Alaska Sunday, and dropped two games Saturday by scores of 12-0 in five innings to Alaska and 6-2 to Washington.

"It was another team effort today," Griffin said after Saturday's losses. "It was not a good team effort. We didn't play well at all."

Oregon had one hit and committed eight errors against Alaska Saturday.

Alaska scored three runs in the third and eight runs in the fourth to take command of the game.

Taylor Christman hit a bloop single. Savannah Wilhelm pitched four innings and struck out seven. Mandy Griffin caught the entire game. Kara Mann relieved Wilhelm in the fifth.

Against Washington Saturday, Oregon started Mann on the mound, with Mandy Griffin catching. Griffin had a double and Shelbi Williams had two doubles.

Washington scored four runs in the second. Oregon answered with one run. Washington scored two runs in the third. Oregon scored one in the seventh.

Christina McGilvray relieved Mann and pitched three innings. She struck out four batters and gave up one hit. Keri Reynolds pitched the final inning.

Against Alaska Sunday, Oregon scored once in the second and sixth. Alaska scored one in the fourth and two in the fifth.

Williams had a double, and Mann and Griffin had one RBI single each.

Oregon committed three errors Sunday.

Wilhelm had six strikeouts. Griffin caught the entire game.

Oregon plays Washington at 3 p.m. today. The championship game is Tuesday.
