The Lady Beavers held a 9-0 lead Tuesday going into the fifth inning against Bismarck, but allowed the Lady Lions to rally back and win 12-9.
Senior Tiffany Houpt pitched all seven innings for Glen Rose, earning the loss.
"Tiffany had some control issues," Glen Rose head coach Kyle Lem said.
While giving up the 12 runs, Houpt allowed 10 hits and nine walks. She had five strikeouts on the night.
"Being up nine runs, we have to score those runs in the bottom of the fourth and put the game out of reach," Lem said.
After the fourth inning, the Lady Beavers only recorded three hits.
With runners on first and second and two outs in the seventh inning, a routine ground ball to second went through the legs of Lake Hamiltonâ€™s second baseman, which allowed the runner on second to score and tie the game.
The throw from left field to the catcher sailed and allowed Billy Wicker to easily score from third and give Sheridan a 7-6 win over defending 6A State Champion Lake Hamilton Tuesday night.
â€śGetting a win like that was big,â€ť coach Mike Moore said. â€śTo hit like did off their really good pitching was huge.

Although Glen Rose gave up two runs against Bismarck, all were unearned and the Beaversâ€™ pitching roster essentially threw a combined no-hitter in their 12-2 win Tuesday.
Glen Rose head coach Chase Meyers said, â€śI didnâ€™t seem like we were pitching that well, because we had a couple of errors and they had runners on.
â€śBut our guys stopped the bleeding, and it couldâ€™ve been a lot worse.â€ť

BENTON â€” During Monday's practice, the Benton Lady Panthers worked exclusively on getting runners in. In their two losses in the Bootsie Gordon Tournament, Benton left 11 players on base.
"We sat down and looked at the games we won and the games we lost," coach Eric Ryan said. "I know one of things we have been doing is leaving runners on base.
"We got to do whatever it takes to get runners in. It doesn't if it is a bunt, a push or hitting a ground ball."
