High School Softball: Warriors fight to end, but fall short


They were good to the last out.

Unfortunately for the top-seeded Brainerd Warriors, they weren’t good enough to get past fifth-seeded Elk River in Wednesday’s losers’ bracket game of the Section 8-3A tournament at Adamson Field.

The Elks scored twice in the fourth inning and added the game-winner in the fifth to knock off the Warriors (20-3) for the second time in the playoffs and eliminate the home team with a 3-2 victory.
