Mt. Lake Area couldn’t get going on offense Saturday afternoon, struggling from the field in a 43-29 loss to St. James Area in Mt. Lake.
The Saints broke the game open in the second half, outscoring the Wolverines 26-17.
“It was our third game in the first week, so we were a little tired,” MLA Coach Wayne Klassen said.
“We couldn’t find much offense, and a lot of that had to do with St. James’ defense. They’re aggressive and quick and
pushed it up the floor.
“They did a good job tiring us out.”
St. James led by five at halftime, then built a commanding
lead with an early run in the second half. “We’ve had a tough time on offense in all three of our games so far,” Klassen said.
“You have to be able to put it in the basket, and we haven’t
shot very well. We might not be quite in game condition yet, but the bottom line is you have to put it in the basket.”
Signey Stoesz led the Wolverines with nine points. Bailey Swanson added eight points and nine rebounds.
