The Harlem softball team beat Freeport on Tuesday in a 7-4 victory as the Lady Huskies took over sole possession of the NIC-10 conference lead with two games left on the regular season schedule.
The Lady Pretzels cut a 6-2 deficit to 6-4 but the Lady Huskies added some late insurance to preserve a victory on their home diamond at the Harlem Sports Complex in Loves Park.
Harlem's final two NIC-10 games are against Guilford and Boylan. Freeport has Boylan and Belvidere left on their conference schedule before regionals.
