Emmetsburg's Boys of Summer played host to Pocahontas Area on Friday night and ended up on a wrong side of a 7-0 decision. The loss dropped the E-Hawks to a mark of 8-7 overall on the season.

Emmetsburg would strand Ben Dunlap at second after a base hit in the top of the first, but the Indians would also strand a runner in their half of the inning. Lex Kassel opened the second inning with a walk, and made his way to third base, only to be stranded when the at-bat ended. Pocahontas Area would load the bases off a fielders' choice, single and a walk, but left the trio stranded to end the second inning.

The E-Hawks would be retired in order in the top of the third, and the Indians would push two runs over the plate and then left the bases loaded a second time for a 2-0 lead to start the fourth inning.
