Boys basketball: Defense carries B-E past Parkers Prairie

A consistent effort on defense helped the Brandon-Evansville boys’ basketball team pick up its third win of the season Thursday in a 48-41 game on the road in Parkers Prairie.

The Chargers grabbed 37 rebounds in the game and held Parkers Prairie to just 30 percent shooting for its first victory this season against a Little Eight Conference opponent.

“We were really pleased with the way the kids competed on the defensive end as a coaching staff,” head coach John Holsten said. “They forced turnovers and committed to the last act of defense, which is rebounding.”

Skyler Quinn led the Chargers on both ends of the floor, scoring 18 points and grabbing 13 rebounds. Andrew Johnson led Parkers Prairie with 16 points.

“Everybody played a significant role in this thing,” Holsten said. “It was certainly needed but also deserved.”

With the win, the Chargers moved to 3-15 overall and 1-10 in conference play.
