Emily Friedrich scored 27 points, but the Brandon-Evansville girls' basketball team could not get its outside shooting going in a 49-34 loss to Battle Lake in a Section 6A tournament game Thursday in Evansville.


Friedrich was handed the task of playing inside against a taller Battle Lake team, and she responded by leading the Chargers' offense.

"Our team did a good job of passing it to me and it just went it," she said.
