GIRLS BASKETBALL: Slow start sinks Eagles

Windom 19-43 = 62
MCW 35-32 = 67

A sluggish start and a tough night from the free throw line combined to doom the Windom girls basketball team Thursday night, as the Eagles dropped a 67-62 decision to Martin County West in Sherburn.

MCW was hot from the outside early, racing to a 16-point halftime advantage.

The Eagles stormed to life in the second half, hitting six three-pointers as a team to cut into the deficit.

But Windom finished the game just 12-of-23 from the line, which prevented a further comeback.

Haidyn Sammons led the Eagles with 24 points. Hannah Dauer added 20 points in the loss.

MCC 26-25 = 51
MLAC 27-23 = 50

A buzzer-beating three-pointer by Murray County Central’s Kelli Miller lifted the Rebels to a 51-50 victory over Mt. Lake Area-Comfrey Thursday in Mt. Lake.

The Wolverines took the lead on a three-pointer from Annika Brinkman with 55 seconds left. Brinkman then added one-of-two from the line with 5.6 seconds left on the clock, giving the Wolverines a 50-48 lead.

After a timeout, MCC pushed the ball upcourt, throwing to Miller in the right corner for the three-point attempt, which splashed through the net as the buzzer sounded.

Julia Brinkman led the Wolverines with 12 points. Annika Brinkman added 10 points in the loss.

RRC 17-15 = 32
RTR 44-21 = 65

Red Rock Central’s offense couldn’t get on track Thursday night, as Russell-Tyler-Ruthton surged to a 65-32 victory at Tyler.

RTR came out of the blocks with tight defensive pressure, forcing the Falcons into first-half turnovers. That allowed RTR to race to a 44-17 halftime lead.

RRC never heated up from the field in the second half, as the Knights were able to hold the Falcons to 28% from the field.

Taylor Lang led the Falcons with 16 points in the loss. Mercedes Myers added six points.
