Milton’s unbeaten run came to an end Saturday at the hands of Badger South Conference rival Oregon.

The Panthers built an 18-point lead in the first half, enough to survive the Red Hawks’ comeback attempt, in a 60-48 upset at Milton High.

Kaitlyn Schrimpf and Liz Uhl had 14 points each to lead Oregon (4-3, 1-3 Badger South), which snapped a two-game losing streak.

Milton (4-1, 3-1 Badger South) dropped out of a first-place tie with idle Monroe (4-0 Badger South). Chloe Buescher led the Red Hawks with 16 points.
