Hoops Highlights

North Branch 65, Rockford 60
North Branch opened their season up with a nice non-conference win over Rockford on Thursday, December 2.

Trevor Johnson and Carson Klein got the Vikes a big lead early and they held on behind a combined 49 from the pair.

North Branch 62, Hermantown 48
The Vikings rode a big first half in which they held the Hunters to just 10 points and built a 16 point lead to win easily against the Hunters on Saturday, December 4.
NB’s Adam Rehm led all scorers with 19 points. Travis Schoeberl added a career-high 18 for NB.

Hermantown 94, Chisago Lakes 90
There will be some shootouts this year for the Wildcats’ boys basketball team.
Owen Larsen put up 29 points and three other ‘Cats were in double figures as they fell 94-90 in a high-scoring affair against section foe Hermantown.

Chisago Lakes 88, St. Agnes 82
Five Wildcats scored in double figures in their first win of the year, with Patrick Rowe’s 23 leading the way. Trae Griffen, Luke Thompson, Reed Marquardt and Larsen also scored over 10 as the ‘Cats beat St. Agnes.


Hermantown 48, North Branch 45
The Lady Vikings opened up their season against a familiar section opponent, and they were in a tough battle the whole night.

They got behind by a little bit in the first half and could just never overtake a gritty Hawk squad.

“The girls fought hard the whole game and we put ourselves in a position to have a chance at the end, unfortunately we came up a bit short,” Head Coach Alison Trampe said. “It was a good opportunity to play a quality section opponent in our first game of the season and identify areas we need to improve on as a team.”

Paige Peaslee and Chloe Lattimore each had a double-double, with Peaslee scoring 18 points and grabbing 11 boards, and Lattimore scoring 11 to go with 12 boards. Ella Kuhlman had 14 points for NB.

North Branch 62, South St. Paul 42
The inside-out combo of Peaslee and Kuhlman demolished the Packers on Thursday, December 2 in NB’s home opener.

The pair combined for 49 points and 16 boards, with Peaslee going for 25 and 10 and Kuhlman going for 24 and six. She also added three assists and three steals.

The offensive potency led to a six point lead at halftime. That lead ballooned when South St. Paul tried to force things to keep pace with Peaslee and Kuhlman, and the Vikes ended up winning their first game of the year by a comfortable 20 point margin.

“We responded in a positive way after our loss to Hermantown with a nice win against a scrappy South St. Paul team,” Trampe said. “We were able to handle their pressure and keep our composure to pick up the win.”

Chisago Lakes 76, Zimmerman 57
The Wildcats were able to secure a big early season win by dominating their match up with Zimmerman on Tuesday, November 30.

They were just plain better than the Thunder on offense, defense and on the boards, and it showed. Greta Gillach led all scorers with 19 points, and she was one of four Wildcats in double digits. Emily Erickson added 16, Katherine Saueressig had 13 and Kaitlyn Wille had 10. Alyssa Hempel was right on the doorstep, scoring nine points to go with 10 boards. Gillach, Saueressig, Erickson and Brianna Wille all had over six rebounds as well, as the Wildcats totaled 44 team boards.
