CHISAGO LAKES HOOPS ROUND UP
Chisago Lakes 58, Zimmerman 53
Buffalo 51, Chisago Lakes 49
The Wildcat girls basketball team took advantage of the fact that Zimmerman was abysmal on their three point shooting and beat the Thunder on Tuesday, March 2.
The ‘Cats had a slim lead at halftime, and then were able to pad it just enough in the second half to keep Zimmerman at bay.
There were no offensive stars in the game for Chisago Lakes, just a steady dose of baskets from many different sources. Jill Erickson and Sophie Wood each had 10 points, Emma Bjelland and Greta Gillach each scored eight and Alyssa Hempel and Katie Saueressig each had six.
Zimmerman was led by Lydia Hagstrom, who scored 18 points and was two-of-five from beyond the arc. The rest of the team combined to go one-for-21 from three point land.
The ‘Cats dropped a thriller in overtime to Buffalo on Saturday, March 6 against their old M8C foes. It was a low-scoring affair throughout, and that didn’t change when it got to overtime with the two teams combining for just three baskets. The problem was that Buffalo netted two of those baskets.
Wood led the ‘Cats with 18 points and eight boards, Gillach had 13 points and Saueressig had 10 points and five rebounds.
Kasson-Mantorville 62, Chisago Lakes 59
