GRAND ISLAND -- The Class B No. 2 ranked Beatrice softball team suffered their second setback of the season on Monday in a makeup triangular in Grand Island.

Northwest got one of those runs back in the fifth inning to make it 2-1.

Barnard blasted her second home run of the game in the sixth inning -- a solo shot -- which made it 3-1.

That run would end up being big as Northwest scored a run in the bottom of the seventh on an RBI single. Northwest tried to score the tying run on the same play, but the runner was thrown out at home, ending the game.
