Hot shooting pushes Browerville past Parkers Prairie
The Browerville and Parkers Prairie girls basketball teams saw just how far hot shooting can go in an 80-63 win for the Tigers on Monday night.
Browerville led 50-42 after a first half in which both teams had no problem shooting the ball. Quinn Kircher hit seven three points by halftime to lead the Tigers’ scoring with 21 points.
The hot shooting cooled off a little for both teams in the second half as Browerville won a battle that could be replayed again in the North Division of the Section 5A tournament.
Crystal Pearson led the scoring for Browerville in the game with 31 points while Kircher finished with 25. Micaela Noga led the Parkers Prairie’s offense with 24 points.
“We weren’t expecting that, I think they kind of shot out of their heads tonight,” Micaela Noga said. “It was a really good game for us. That is who we are probably going to play in the subsection championship.”
The Panthers knew heading into the game that Browerville was a good team, but they did not expect the Tigers to put up 50 points by halftime.
“I scouted them a couple of times and they did not shoot the way they shot tonight,” head coach John Noga said. “Give them credit. They got open looks and they moved the ball really well to get those open looks.”
The loss dropped Parkers Prairie to 8-6 overall this season.
