Windom 18-22 = 40
MVL 32-32 = 64
A frigid shooting performance doomed the Windom Eagle girls basketball team Saturday, as the Eagles bowed out of the Section 3AA playoffs with a 64-40 loss to Minnesota Valley Lutheran in New Ulm.

Meanwhile, the Eagles struggled from the field, shooting a paltry 22% for the game.
KJ Huska closed her career with 16 points to lead the Eagles in the loss. Hadley Sammons and Hannah Dauer each scored seven points.

Edgerton battled back in the second half, but RRC was able to do enough damage from the free throw line late to preserve the victory.
Sondra Rindfleisch led the Falcons with 16 points. Lilly Stavnes and Karli Arkell each scored 13 points in the win.
With the victory, RRC advances to face top-seeded Tracy-Milroy-Balaton Tuesday night in Worthington, beginning at 6 p.m.
