Goodhue built a 21-point halftime lead and never had to look back Friday, securing a 71-51 Hiawatha Valley League road win over Lake City at Lincoln High School. Led by Maddy Miller’s 15 points, three Wildcats finished in double figures. Sydney Lodermeier added 14 points and McKenzie Ryan hit three 3-pointers on the way to a 10-point night. For the Tigers, Daynalyn Jostock led the way with 15 points, followed by a 14-point, eight-assist, four-steal effort from Deandra Oelkers. Oelkers also hit all four of the team’s 3-pointers in the loss.
Randolph managed to expand a 20-16 halftime lead into a 12-point victory Friday night as the Rockets successfully defended their home court in a 44-32 Southeast Conference win over Lyle-Pacelli. Grant Otte was Randolph’s driving force, hitting three 3-pointers en route to a 19-point night. Joey Erickson tallied eight points, followed by six for Calvin Stoesz and five from both Andrew Wenstrom and Carsyn Gunderson. Trinity Anderson was the Athletics’ top scorer with 18 points, all on six 3-pointers, followed by seven points from Brady Lester.
A late first-half run gave Northfield a nine-point halftime lead. And then the Raiders really turned it on, outscoring Red Wing 47-18 in the second half for a 72-34 Big Nine Conference victory over the Wingers. Red Wing hit just nine of 37 field goals, and was out-rebounded 35-17. Kipp Adams led the Wingers with nine points, adding three rebounds and a steal. Seth Yeatman had nine points while Ted Tauer added seven points and six rebounds. Red Wing (3-10, 2-8 Big Nine) hosts Winona on Tuesday and Owatonna on Thursday.
Eliza Warneke had 24 points on Friday, but no other Pine Island player could reach double figures in the Panthers' 72-60 loss to Hiawatha Valley League foe Kenyon-Wanamingo. Brooke Sinning and Autumn Pin each had eight points for Pine Island. On Monday, Pine Island hosts Lewiston-Altura while K-W will wait until Tuesday to host Lake City.
The Red Wing boys' basketball team got 15-point efforts from both Jawon Terry and Kipp Adams, but it was not enough to overcome a 31-22 halftime deficit to Rochester Mayo in a 54-47 Big Nine Conference loss Thursday in Rochester. Along with his 15 points, Terry tallied five rebounds, two steals and two blocks while Adams hauled in three rebounds. Nathan Carlson came up with eight points, four rebounds and three blocks, and Teddy Tauer added five points and five rebounds. Tre Moore came off the bench and grabbed a team-high six boards.
According to coach Samantha McCamy, Cannon Falls came together on Thursday to best its best game of the season, “especially offensively.” That resulted in a 55-31 victory over Schaeffer Academy in Rochester. Kaly Banks led all scorers with 18 points, and added six rebounds in the win. Bomber teammate Kara Loeschke had 15 points and eight rebounds while Tatum Pickar had seven points, seven assists and four steals. Kira Jacobson finished with just three points, but led Cannon Falls with 13 rebounds.
Byron led by seven at halftime, then clamped down even more defensively to leave Zumbrota-Mazeppa with a 60-43 victory. The Cougars scored just 19 points in the second half, down from 24 in the first. Z-M's Taylor Blackstad had a team-high 17 points, with Ali Hunstad adding 11. Bear Ayoka Lee dominated the paint, and the scoresheet, with 34 points and 17 rebounds. Lee hit 16 of her 19 field goals, and both of her free throws.
Christ's Household of Faith was hot early, but the Lions could not hold off Pine Island, which stormed back at the end of the first half and ended up taking the nonconference game, 75-62. The Panthers were down eight early as CHOF hit six 3-pointers in the first 10 minutes of the game. Pine Island battled to within one at halftime, then Mark Mboya Kotieno and Broc Finstuen combined for 37 second-half points. Kotieno finished with 28 points and 10 rebounds, while Finstuen had 23 points and eight boards.
Outside of two forfeits, Zumbrota-Mazeppa lost just one match in its 52-16 Hiawatha Valley League dual victory over Lake City on Thursday. At 113 pounds, Tanner Frank put the Tigers in front for the first and only time with a major decision, answering Michael Majerus' decision for the Cougars minutes earlier.
Goodhue had little trouble in a home triangular with two Hiawatha Valley League opponents, beating both Stewartville and Triton. The Tigers took control early against the Wildcats, winning four of the first five bouts, but John Altendorf's pin at 113 pounds, and just two bonus points allowed by his Goodhue teammates had the Wildcats down just 14-6. Then the middleweights took over for Goodhue as Sven Otterness, Joel Breuer, Kaleb O'Reilly, Kelby O'Reilly and Mason Huemann reeled off 25-straight points to put the Wildcats up 31-14.
