WEEKEND GIRLS BASKETBALL: Eagles race past Trojans

Worthington 31-32 = 63

The Windom girls basketball team turned defense into offense and bombed away from the outside Saturday, rolling to an 86-63 win over Worthington during the Big South Conference Showcase in Windom.

The Eagles forced 18 Trojan turnovers and converted those into 18 points in the game. Much of that pressure came in the first half, when the Eagles erupted for 52 first-half points and a 21-point halftime lead.

Meanwhile, the Eagles were solid from the outside, hitting 15 three-pointers in the game as a team.

Alivia Letcher led a quartet of Eagles in double figures with 24 points. Hannah Dauer added 17 points, Hadley Sammons finished with 16 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists and Madi Hogan added 11 points.

MCW 22-28 = 50
MLAC 20-36 = 56

Mt. Lake Area-Comfrey roared to life in the second half Friday night, surging to a 56-50 victory over Martin County West at Mt. Lake.

The Wolverines trailed by two at halftime and trailed by as many as six in the second half, but MLAC battled back, taking the lead on a three-pointer and putting the game away from the free throw line late.

Jaci Tollefson hit six three-pointers and poured in a season-high 22 points to lead the Wolverines. Julia Brinkman added 13 points and nine steals.
