SPIRIT?LAKE?- The Emmetsburg E-Hawks were limited to four hits in a 1-0 loss to Spirit Lake Friday night. The loss dropped Emmetsburg to 9-13 and 4-6 with two games remaining in the regular season.

Friday's game was a defensive battle from the opening pitch as neither team would be able to score through six innings.

Both teams would be retired in order in the first and in the second, the E-Hawks would leave Max Dunlap in limbo after his fielders's choice created the third out. Spirit Lake would leave runners at the corners as they were retired in their half of the inning.

Both teams went down in order in the third and in the fourth, Emmetsburg left Connor Joyce waiting at first after a base hit. Spirit Lake would leave a runner at third in their at-bat as the scoreless deadlock continued.

In the fifth Emmetsburg left Hunter Mcallister waiting at second, but the Indians left a runner at third base in their half of the inning.

Emmetsburg would go down in order in the top of the sixth inning, and Spirit Lake would leave a runner at first after a base hit.

In the seventh, the E-Hawks would be retired in order and settled in to play defense. Spirit Lake would come up and got a leadoff single. An error put the runner on third base before a second error occurred, but a base hit would score the runner and end the game in the 1-0 final tally.

Emmetsburg's Matt Kibbie would take the loss, as he went all seven innings and allowed just one run off seven hits, while issuing three walks in the contest.

The E-Hawks would get base hits from Connor Joyce, Matt Kibbie, Max Dunlap and Hunter McAllister in the setback.

The E-Hawks will host Spirit Lake in their final regular-season game as a makeup game this Thursday, July 6 in Emmetsburg. The game was originally scheduled for June 12 but was postponed due to weather.
