BELLS, Texas (KTEN) - It was a beautiful day for softball and scoring early at Bells High School, where Howe faced Rivercrest. 

Rivercrest scored a run in the top of the first but Howe's Kennadi Barrett responded with a two-run home run to left field in the bottom half of the inning. 

It was not enough on Thursday though as Howe fell by a 4-3 final score.
