Mt. Lake Area couldn’t recover from a 12-point halftime deficit Friday, falling 63-54 to Southwest Minnesota Christian at Edgerton.
The Eagles hit five first half three-pointers, staking
themselves to the early lead with a 13-0 run run.
The Wolverines were able to close the deficit down to a single point in the second half, but another 8-0 run by the Eagles put the game out of reach.
“We played a pretty good game and started well, but they went on that run to go up 25-12,” MLA Coach Shawn Naas said. “We were able to keep the deficit at 12 the rest of the first half. In the second half, we played better, defensively, and made a nice run to get it to one.
“We had it down to three points a couple of different times, but we gave up too many offensive boards and too many good looks at the basket.”
Levi Stoesz led the Wolverines with 16 points. Levi Jahnke added eight points in the loss.
The Wolverines were scheduled to host St. James Area last night (Tuesday).
MLA has three straight road games on the horizon, traveling to Westbrook Thursday, Springfield Saturday and Okabena next
