ALGONA?- A slow start by Emmetsburg's Lady E-Hawks resulted in a 12-2 loss to Algona in five innings of softball action Tuesday night. The loss drops the Lady E-Hawks to a 9-14 mark in the campaign.

Emmetsburg would get a leadoff single from Sarah Simington, but a fielders' choice on Lindsay Carter's at-bat would punt Simington out and a double play on Annie Brennan's at-bat ended the opportunity.

Algona would push a run over the plate in the bottom of the first off a pais of singles and a walk for a 1-0 lead.

In the second, Emmetsburg went down in order, but Algona would plate five runs in their half of the inning, using two walks, a double, a single, a wild pitch and an Emmetsburg error to tally the runs for a 6-0 lead to start the third inning.

After a quick ground out, Emmetsburg's Parker Traub got on base off an error in the top of the third, but a ground out by Simington would give Emmetsburg two outs as Traub moved to third after an error. An error would put Raven Brown on base as well, and the two Lady E-Hawks moved to third and second, respectively before a base hit by Lindsay Carter would score the two runs, but Carter would be left waiting at second when the at-bat ended on a line drive to the pitcher.

Algona would tack on three more runs in the bottom of the third frame, getting a double and a wild pitch to score a run before a two-run home run would add two more runs, but the Bulldogs would leave a runner stranded at second when the inning ended with Algona holding a 9-2 lead.

Emmetsburg would be retired in order in the top of the fourth inning, and Algona would score three more runs in the bottom of the fourth inning, using a walk, a pair of base hits, and two errors to score the runs before stranding runners at second and third to end the inning with a 12-2 advantage.

In the top of the fifth, Emmetsburg would lead off with a ground out by Emma Anderson, but Parker Traub singled deep into right field. Raven Brown would hit to second, and the Bulldogs would end the game on a double play to take the win by the 10-run rule.

Lindsay Carter would take the loss in the pitching circle, as she worked three innings and gave up 11 runs, 10 of which were earned, off eight hits, including a home run, while issuing nine walks and striking out seven batters.

Mikayla Frerichs relieved for one inning and surrendered one run off one hit with one strikeout.

For the Lady E-Hawks, Sarah Simington, Lindsay Carter and Parker Traub each had a base hit in the effort.
