The Brandon-Evansville girls’ basketball team held Rothsay to just 29 points on Friday night as they posted a 61-29 Little Eight Conference victory over the Tigers.
“It was a really good all-around effort from our girls tonight,” said Head Coach Zach Traphagen of the Chargers. “It's nice to get our first win at home and start off 2022 with a win. We are starting to figure things out a little better defensively, and that's really helping us on the offensive side as well. Our rebounding was on point tonight as well, especially on the offensive glass. We were able to get everyone in the game which is always great to see. Next week will be very busy with 3 games, so it's important that we continue taking strides forward in our improvement on a daily basis.”
B-E made 42% (22-52) of their shots from the floor. They were led by Kylee Dingwall (16 points, 4 rebounds, 3 steals, 2 assists), Olivia Otto (14 points, 4 steals) and Sydney Schaefer (10 points, 3 rebounds. Grace Otto pulled down a team high 6 rebounds and came up with 4 steals.
The Chargers (5-4) won for a third straight time. They will travel to Parkers Prairie on Tuesday, host Melrose on Thursday and close out a busy week with a home game against Ashby on Friday.
Rothsay (1-8) travels to Twin Valley on Monday to face Norman County East/Ulen-Hitterdal and will host Ashby on Tuesday before hosting Parkers Prairie on Friday.
