They have another tough test at home tonight against Estherville-Lincoln Central (5-1). They visit Emmetsburg Friday.
"I cannot wait to be done with this stretch of Lakes Conference games," said Storm Lake head coach Mel Fisher. "Hull, Spirit lake, ELC. 1-2-3 all in a row. I give the girls credit for showing up each night and putting the uniform on, I know it can't always be easy. We have got to do a better job of taking care of the ball. 30 turnovers is way too many."
