Montevideo 32-26 = 58
Windom 35-34 = 69

The Windom Eagle girls basketball team blew things open with a 13-0 run in the second half Saturday night, opening the Section 3AA South playoffs with a 69-58 win over Montevideo at Windom.

The Eagles held a slim three-point halftime lead and the lead changed hands several times early in the second half. But leading 44-43, the Eagles went to work on defense, holding the Thunderhawks scoreless for nearly six minutes. Meanwhile, the Eagles methodically built the lead behind key baskets inside and outside.

Allison Letcher hit a pair of three-pointers in the second half and Shelby Erickson hit back-to-back treys, giving the Eagles the lead for good.

The Eagles sealed the win thanks to a strong offensive night from senior Autumn Hauge, who went over the 1,000-point mark for her career with a 26-point performance. Letcher added 16 points and Delaney Smith finished with eight.

MCC 17-36 = 53
RRC 42-27 = 69

Red Rock Central saw a comfortable lead turn into an uncomfortable finish Saturday, but the Falcons stabilized themselves late, preserving a 69-53 win over Murray County Central in the Section 3A playoffs at Worthington.

The Falcon offense erupted in the first half while RRC's defense held MCC under wraps early. The Falcons battered MCC in the lane and on the fast break, racing to a 42-17 halftime lead.

The Falcons were able to stretch the lead to 30 points in the second half, but MCC took to the outside late to make things interesting. The Rebels hit nine three-pointers in the second half, cutting a 30-point deficit down to 10 with two minutes to go in the game. But baskets by Karli Arkell and Nicole Schroepfer helped the Falcons stop the Rebel rally to preserve the win.

Arkell finished with 22 points and 12 rebounds in the victory. Schroepfer added 19 points and Lily Stavnes finished with 17 points.

WWG 15-15 = 30
SWC 47-31 = 78

Southwest Minnesota Christian came out firing from long range Saturday, building a quick lead and cruising to a 78-30 victory over Westbrook-Walnut Grove in the Section 3A playoffs at Worthington.

The Eagles hit 10 three-pointers in the game, including seven in the first half and five in the first four minutes of the game. That allowed SWC to take a nearly-immediate 10-point lead.

Meanwhile, WWG's offense never got going in the game, shooting 25% from the field. The Chargers had a stretch of nearly eight minutes without a field goal in the first half.

Alli VandeKieft led WWG with nine points. Kelly Berglund finished with seven points in the loss.
