The Bear River High softball team ran into a talented Elk Grove squad Thursday on the road and left with its third loss of the season. Thundering Herd junior Shelby Wisdom struck out 14 Bruins as Elk Grove won 4-1. Erin Nichol pitched well for Bear River (15-3), giving up just one earned run in six innings of work. Both teams had five hits. Courtney Ceo had a bunt-single and scored the Bruins’ lone run in the sixth. Katie Mathis finished 2-for-3 while Alyssa Reina and Stephanie Ceo had one hit each. Bear River will travel to Colfax for a Pioneer Valley League clash on Monday.
