Northwood/Solon Springs rallies for win

Zoey Vaara pitched seven strong innings, and Northwood/Solon Springs broke from a 2-2 tie with five runs in the top of the seventh inning to down Hurley 7-2 in a nonconference softball game Monday, June 7, in Hurley.

Annika Patrick and Bailey Monson had two hits apiece to lead NSS (16-1) while Mackenzie Backman had two hits to lead the Northstars (20-4).
