Girls' basketball: Dorn paces Panthers in win over Chargers
Madison Dorn of Parkers Prairie followed up her 42-point performance with a team-leading 24 in a 63-33 win over Brandon-Evansville on Tuesday night.
Dorn did most of her damage in the second half as she poured in 16 to help her team run away with it. Micaela Noga added 16 points as seven different Panthers players scored in the win.
Brandon-Evansville trailed by 11 at the break but scored just 16 points in the second half. The Chargers were led by Megan Friedrich's eight points. Megan Kokett and Elizabeth Vinson added seven apiece, while Carlie Steffenson and Kristine Bettermann had six and five points, respectively.
"First half, we played pretty well," Brandon-Evansville head coach Dick Simpson said. "Second half, we didn't play very good help defense and had some defensive lapses. We didn't shoot very well for the game, either."
The Chargers finished the night 27 percent from the field after going 14-of-52. The Panthers were 25-of-48 and outrebounded Brandon-Evansville 34-27.
The win for Parkers Prairie moved the Panthers to 3-0 and to 1-0 in the Little Eight Conference. The Chargers fell to 0-3 overall and 0-1 in league play.
Brandon-Evansville will welcome in Underwood tonight, Friday, for another LEC battle. The Panthers will be at Ashby tonight before going to Underwood next Tuesday.
