“We had our chances,” Chargers head coach John Holsten said. “We were up six with two minutes to go and committed some turnovers and gave up some second-chance opportunities and they got the win. We let this one slip away.”

The Chargers had 18 turnovers in the game to just 10 for Rothsay. That was part of the difference after both teams shot around 41 percent from the field.

Skyler Quinn had a game-high 27 points for Brandon-Evansville. McKenon Plaster and James Huisman each added seven points. Rothsay’s Brett Brenden had 16 points and 15 rebounds, while Noah Brenden and Logan Moen added 11 and 10 points, respectively.

The loss dropped the Chargers to 2-15 overall and to 0-10 in the Little Eight Conference. Rothsay improved to 4-12 and 2-6 in league play. Brandon-Evansville was scheduled to be at Parkers Prairie last night, Thursday, before welcoming in West Central Area next Tuesday night.
