Battle Lake Boys Hold Off Tigers for 49-44 Win

By Craig Olson - Rothsay, MN

The Battle Lake boys basketball team traveled to Rothsay on Tuesday night and beat the Tigers 49-44. The Battlers led 23-14 and held off a determined second half rally by the Tigers who tied the game with five minutes to play but never led.

“We did a pretty nice job on the defensive end most of the night,” said Head Coach Dan Peterka of Battle Lake. “Offensively we had a tough time getting anything going. We were fortunate to get the win.”

Isaiah Dorn led the Battlers with 16 points. He was followed by Bennet Cameron with 14 and Nick VanErp with 8.

Rothsay was led by Wyatt Curtis with 21 points and 4 steals, scoring all 21 points in the second half.  Colby Larson contributed 7 points and 3 steals.  Rothsay shot 40% from the field, and was 10-16 (63%) from the FT line.

Rothsay had their three game winning streak snapped with the loss.

Battle Lake (8-4) will host Hancock on Friday night, while Rothsay (4-7) will travel to Fergus Falls to face Hillcrest Lutheran Academy.
