The third long road trip in three nights proved too much for the Mt. Lake Area girls basketball team to overcome Saturday night in Hills.

Hills-Beaver Creek went 18-of-23 from the free throw line in the second half as the Wolverines wore out on both ends of the floor. That allowed the Patriots to claim a 61-48 victory.

“It was our third long roadtrip in three nights, and the girls clearly were worn out,” MLA Coach Wayne Klassen said. “We ran out of gas in the second half.

It might have been a little different if we had played them earlier in the week or elsewhere in our schedule.

“It was a three-point game most of the way until halfway through the second half.

We struggled to score down the stretch and we had to put them on the free throw line.” HBC held a one-point halftime

lead, but pulled away in the second half, outscoring MLA 18-0 from the free throw line in the half and 24-6 from the stripe for the game.
