Venus broke a 1-1 tie with a run-scoring single in the bottom of the fifth inning Friday as the Stephenville Honeybees suffered a 2-1 District 8-4A softball setback at home.

Morgan DiCiccio and Jessica Ebeling had two hits each for the Honeybees, who slipped to 17-10-1 on the season and 5-2 in district play.

Samantha Luna and Julia Flores added one hit each for SHS.

Flores took the loss, pitching all six innings, but neither run was earned. She struck out a dozen hitters and walked only one.

The Honeybees were scheduled to play at home last night (Tuesday) against Midlothian Heritage. Their next game will be Friday at Alvarado (7:30 p.m.).
