=Estherville Lincoln Central couldn't come up with the hits in a 7-1 non-conference loss to Emmetsburg on Friday.

Although the Midgets drew nine walks against Emmetsburg starter Mikayla Frerichs, ELC had just two hits against the junior hurler who finished with eight strikeouts.

Emmetsburg scored its first six runs through the first three innings before ELC plated a run in the fourth. The E'Hawks added an insurance run in the top of the seventh.

The Midgets then loaded the bases with no outs as Frerichs walked three straight ELC batters. But a pop up and two strikeouts ended ELC's chances for a rally.

Maggie White took the loss on the mound for ELC.
