Facing Farmington on Friday, Red Wing made short work of the Missota Conference’s last-place team with a 54-37 victory in Farmington.
Leading 23-16 at halftime, the Wingers got a game-high 21 points from senior forward Macy Kelly, who also had seven rebounds. Tesha Buck continues to be an all-around threat for Red Wing with 19 points, 10 rebounds, five assists, five steals and three blocks.
While she didn’t reach the scoreboard, Red Wing head coach Dave Muelken was quick to credit freshman McKenzie Cota with a vital defensive effort.
“She’s been playing really well,” Muelken said of Cota, who finished with five rebounds. “We put her on one of their more dynamic players and she did a good job. She’s got quicker feet than you’d think.”
Red Wing (12-2, 4-0 Missota) returns home on Tuesday, hosting Academy of Holy Angels.
