SPIRIT LAKE, HULL - The Estherville Lincoln Central girls have struggled to come up with wins the past few games and the Midgets ended last week with losses to Spirit Lake and Western Christian.

On Thursday, ELC couldn't penetrate Spirit Lake's 2-3 zone defense in falling 41-25 to the Indians.

Spirit Lake's top two players in the defense, starters Karli Olsen and Cameron Quance, hounded ELC's guards making it difficult to get in the interior.
