Christensen Scores 19 to Lead Battlers Past Hillcrest

By Craig Olson - Fergus Falls, MN

Stacy Christensen poured in 19 points and the Battle Lake girls basketball team capitalized on 27 Hillcrest turnovers as they posted a 49-32 victory over the lady Comets on Friday night in Fergus Falls. 

“We jumped out to an early lead and held on throughout the game,” reported Battle Lake Head Coach David Marso. “For most of the game we were able to maintain about a ten point lead but were not able to pull away more until late in the game.  Stacy Christensen really had a big game putting up 17 of her game high 19 points in first half.  It was great to see Stacy really look to score more tonight.  Overall, I thought our defensive effort was good and we were able to generate some offense in transition.”   

Tessa Kortlever added 9 points and Allison Marso scored seven points. 

Leaders for Hillcrest were Olivia Foss (12 points, 6 rebounds), Anna Murray (7 points, 10 rebounds), Augusta Ewan (5 points), Anna Rasmussen (4 points, 4 rebounds) and Mackenzie Foss (2 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assists). 

The Comets shot 28% (13-47) from the floor and made 8-of-14 (57%) from the free throw line. 

“It was our first game in 3 weeks and we looked a little out of sync,” commented Head Coach Hannah Clark. “I thought we attacked the basket better than we have all year, but we couldn’t get our shots to fall. Battle Lake played a great game both offensively and defensively and they never allowed us to get into any sort of rhythm.”  

Battle Lake plays Pelican Rapids at 2:00pm Saturday at Concordia College in Moorhead and Hillcrest will host Park Christian School at 4:00pm in the first game of a girl/boy double header.
