E-Hawks Go 1-2 In Late-Week Contests

June 6, 2017
by Dan Voigt , Emmetsburg News

Emmetsburg's Boys of Summer dropped their opening Lakes Conference contest of the season Wednesday night, but split a pair of non-conference games at week's end to move to 2-6 on the young baseball season.

Traveling to LeMars on Wednesday, the E-Hawks would go down early and were never able to recover in an 11-1 loss in a five-inning contest.

LeMars would jump out to an early 5-0 lead after the first inning and then padded three more runs to their total in the second frame. The E-Hawks got on the scoreboard in the top of the fourth when Connor Joyce came home off a sacrifice fly by Hunter McAllister. But, LeMars would answer that run for a 9-1 lead and then plated two more runs in the bottom of the fifth frame to end the contest on the 10-run rule.

Emmetsburg closed out the week hosting the Nighthawks of Boyden-Hull-Rock Valley on Friday, but fell by a 5-2 tally in the non-conference tilt.

Neither team would score until the top of the third when the Nighthawks took a 1-0 advantage, and added two runs for a 3-0 lead in the fourth, but Emmetsburg got two runs back in the bottom of the inning when Connor Joyce got on base off an error and came home off Hunter McAllister's Home Run shot for a 3-2 tally.
