After getting swept by Spencer in the first meeting, the Estherville Lincoln Central boys gave the Tigers more problems in the second meeting on Thursday.

However, Spencer still had too much on the way to an 8-1 victory.

"We played much better against them compared to last time," said ELC coach Tony Klein. "Isaac (Jorgenson) had a nice win in his singles match by winning a very competitive match and tie break."
