Balanced Attack Leads Battlers Past Ashby

By Craig Olson - Battle Lake, MN

The Battle Lake boys basketball team featured a balance attack on Tuesday night, placing four players in double digits on the way to a 54-45 win over Ashby.

"We had good balance on the offensive end tonight," said Head Coach Dan Peterka.  "It was good to get the win."

Brady Scholten led the Battlers with 15 points.  Three players, Nick VanErp, Colton Kirschbaum and Isaiah Dorn each scored ten points. 

The Arrows were led by junior Scott Johnson with 16 points and junior Dakota Ecker with 14 points.  Junior Christian Norby added 8 points and a team high 14 rebounds.  Ashby shot just 26% from the field.  The Arrows had 12 turnovers, marking a huge improvement over their last game.

"I am extremely happy with our performance and effort tonight against a very well-coached, disciplined team," said Ashby Head Coach John Kent.  "Whenever you can stay within striking distance of a quality team you have to be pleased."

Ashby will host Hillcrest on Thursday in another Little Eight Conference contest.

Battle Lake will host Underwood on Thursday and will travel to Perham on Friday night.
