TUESDAY GIRLS BASKETBALL: Tigers pull away, top Eagles

Marshall 43-37 = 80
Windom 36-19 = 55

The Windom Eagle girls basketball team hung tough with Class AAA state-ranked Marshall early, but the Tigers pulled away in the second half Tuesday, claiming an 80-55 victory at Windom.

The Eagles went shot-for-shot with the Tigers in the first half, briefly holding the lead at four different points in the opening half. Marshall’s largest lead of the half was just four points until the closing minutes, when the Tigers went on a 7-0 run to end the half, breaking a 36-36 tie to take a 43-36 lead.

In the second half, Marshall came out firing while the Tiger defense forced the Eagles into turnovers and poor shots. That allowed the Tigers to pull away, outscoring the Eagles 37-19 over the final 18 minutes.

One highlight for the Eagles in the second half came in the closing minutes, when junior Hadley Sammons hit a free throw to score the 1,000th point of her high school career. She finished the game with five points.

Hannah Dauer paced the Eagles with 17 points in the loss. Tristyn Maras added 15 points and Haidyn Sammons added 12.

MLAC 24-20 = 44
RRC 16-20 = 36

The Wolverines were able to maintain that lead much of the second half to secure the win.

Julia Brinkman led the Wolverines with 14 points in the win. Annika Brinkman added seven.

Alyssa Cowan led RRC with 13 points. Ella Erickson added eight points in the loss.
