Broken Bow Catcher Seth Quackenbush had a pitch take a bad hop and catch him in the throat during the 4th inning of then Broken Bow senior baseball game against Palmer-Walbach-Greeley Sunday night.
While taking one in the throat was literal for Quackenbush, it was metaphorical for the rest of the team as PWGS rolled to a 19-3 victory in five innings.
Caleb Dodge and Josey Evans recorded Broken Bow's two hits while Hunter Campbell and Evans had the RBI's on the night with one each.

HISTORIC CEMETERY TOUR - SUNDAY, JUNE 2
The Broken Bow Township Cemetery needs funds. That, says Cemetery Board Chairman John Whitney, is the bottom line.
The cemetery board has taken their concerns to the County Board of Supervisors and to the Broken Bow Township Board, and were told by both that there was nothing they could do. In one more attempt to get some much needed attention, the cemetery board came before the Broken Bow City Council during their regular meeting Tuesday.
In 1913, Woodrow Wilson began the first of two terms as 28th President of the United States, women were fighting for the right to vote, and Ford Motor Company introduced the first moving assembly line. It is also the year Leona (Baker) McCaslin came into this world - May 9 to be exact.
Leona shares her birth year with some pretty impressive names: Richard Nixon, Rosa Parks, Vince Lombardi and Gerald Ford, to name a few.
Congratulations to Ryan Mosier of Twin Loup for his gold medal 51-11.25 shot put throw this afternoon at the State High School Track Meet.
Congratulations to Brady Weinman South Loup. He won gold this afternoon in the pole vault. He successfully vaulted 14 feet 4 inches.
Note: The South Loup Boys team is in third place with 16 points after six events scored. Pawnee County has 17 and Paxton has 22.

Lucas John Heusman was born Nov. 29, 1982, in Lincoln to Timothy and Valarie Heusman.
LINCOLN -- Senators supporting a bill to repeal the death penalty and replace it with life imprisonment without the possibility of parole failed to muster enough votes to overcome a filibuster Tuesday.
A vote to cease debate on LB543, introduced by Sen. Ernie Chambers of Omaha, and bring it to a final vote failed with 28 in favor and and 20 opposed, five votes shy of the 33 needed.
The result means that the bill to repeal the death penalty in Nebraska is essentially dead.
