Game Recap

The Eagles traveled to St Croix Prep HS on Tuesday night for a conference match-up with the new MCAA member Lions, and it was quite a game.

The game seesawed back in forth in the first half with St Croix ending the half on the right side of a 28-27 game. To start the second half the Lions knocked down four consecutive 3-pointers to jump out to a 9 point lead.

The Eagles hung tough and slowly chipped away at the lead finally retaking the lead late in the second half, and surviving a missed free throw from the Lions in the final seconds to hang on for a 60-58 victory.

The win pushes the Eagles conference record to 4-2 on the season. They were led tonight by 20 points from Emmy Erickson and 12 points from Carly Hager.
