PETERSON - Emmetsburg's E-Hawk baseball team jumped out to an early lead Tuesday night and were able to hold off a solid Sioux Central squad to earn a 7-5 victory over the Rebels. The non-conference win improves the E-Hawks to a mark of 6-11 on the year.

The E-Hawks opened the game in Peterson with leadoff hitter Dylan Kibbie being hit by the first pitch of the game. Will Schany would deliver a base hit before a wild pitch allowed Kibbie and Schany to move to third and second, respectively, before Jeremiah Weir delivered a two-run single for the 2-0 Emmetsburg lead.

Connor Joyce followed up with a single and Brent Wesley drew a walk to load the bases before Matt Kibbie hit a grounder for the first out, but not before Weir came home to score. A wild pitch brought both Connor Joyce and Brent Wesley home as Max Dunlap drew a walk. Hunter McAllister would get on base off an error, but was put out on a fielders' choice of Dylan Kibbie's at-bat that ended the at-bat.
