JACKSON, Minn. - Estherville Lincoln Central girls had another rough start as the Midgets took on Jackson County Central on Monday.

But ELC did fight back to at least win the second half in a 61-48 loss to the Huskies.

The Midgets trailed 35-16 at the break.

"At half-time I didn't say much," said ELC coach Tony Klein. "I just talked about confidence. I thought in the fist half, I saw a few players start shoot and then think about missing. In the second half, they shot with more confidence."

ELC did cut the lead to 10, 56-46 in the closing minutes, but JCC was unable to close out the game.

Morgan White led ELC with 18 points with 12 of those coming in the second half. She also had four steals. Carson Gjerde chipped in 10 points while Josie Condon had eight, Rylee Miller and Lindsey Jensen each had four and Ciara Minion and Cydnie Anderson each had two. Jensen pulled down a team-high 10 rebounds.

ELC (2-10 overall) is on the road the rest of this week, taking on Newell-Fonda in Newell tonight (Thursday) and in Spencer on Friday.
