The Windom boys basketball team was held to its lowest point total of the season Friday night, as Fairmont pulled away for a 76-46 victory at Fairmont.

The Eagles struggled from the field, shooting 32% for the game and 14% from three-point range.

Fairmont took control early, using an 8-0 scoring run to take a nine-point lead. The Cardinals then pulled away early in the second half, outscoring the Eagles 43-23 over the final 18 minutes.

Drew Rothenberger led the Eagles with 16 points. Eli Lund added 13 and Elliot Serreyn scored 10.

HBC 30-25 = 55
MLAC 22-34 = 56

Mt. Lake Area-Comfrey rallied in the second half, then hung on late to claim a 56-55 victory over Hills-Beaver Creek Friday in Mt. Lake.

HBC led by eight at halftime, but the Wolverines started the second half with a 15-4 run. After HBC regained the lead, the two teams went back-and-forth, with MLAC taking the lead and HBC tying the game for several possessions late.

However, a three-pointer from Grant Regier with three minutes to go gave the Wolverines a three-point lead. HBC scored a two-point basket shortly after, but the two teams went the final two minutes of the game scoreless, with MLAC forcing the Patriots into five missed shots on attempts to regain the lead, including a desperation three-point try at the buzzer.

Regier paced the Wolverines with 16 points. Grant Oakland added 15 points. Alex Karschnik scored 14 in the win.

Edgerton 32-29 = 61
RRC 38-26 = 64

Red Rock Central held the lead throughout Friday night and saw a major milestone in the process, defeating Edgerton 64-61 at Lamberton.

The game saw wild back-and-forth swings, as RRC opened a 15-point first half lead, only to see Edgerton whittle the deficit down to a single point. RRC rebuilt a six-point halftime cushion and had the lead back up to 14 points in the second half, but Edgerton again cut the deficit down to a single point late before RRC sealed the win from the line.

Falcon senior Isaac Simonson finished with 17 points and 22 rebounds in the game, surpassing 1,000 career rebounds. He became just the ninth boy in the history of the Red Rock Conference to surpass 1,000 points and 1,000 rebounds in his career.
