The West Central Area boys’ basketball team stayed with undefeated Battle Lake for most of the game but faltered down the stretch in a 55-40 loss Saturday.


Battle Lake came into the game with a perfect 21-0 record this season, but WCA only trailed by four points at halftime.

“Battle Lake is a very good team with no weaknesses,” head coach Kraig Hunter said. “We did a lot of things well in this game and competed well with them for much of the game.”
