Non-conference opponent Atwater-Cosmos-Grove City outscored the Silverstreak girls by one in the second half of Thursday night's game, but Osakis' six-point halftime lead held up for a 39-34 win.

"It was a good win for the girls tonight," said Silverstreak head coach Pat Kalpin. "ACGC is a very big and physical team, and I felt the girls played hard and worked hard, especially rebounding the basketball.

"We didn't shoot particularly well, but the girls need to keep taking open shots. Eventually they'll start falling for us."

Kelsey Proell scorched the nets for 17 points, then held up on the defensive end as well as she pulled down six defensive rebounds and made a pair of steals to lead the Streaks.

Kelsie Larson added 10 points and had 11 total rebounds for a double-double night.


The win pushed Osakis' record to 2-1.

The Osakis girls' basketball team improved its Prairie Conference record to 3-0 last Tuesday night with a 58-47 win over Upsala.

Kelsey Proell hit three triples in the game on her way to 18 points. Whitney Lee also scored in double figures with 12.


"This was a very nice road win for us," head coach Pat Kalpin said. "Defensively, I feel we're getting better in the half court. Tonight we showed spurts of really good basketball. We have to continue to play with intensity and turn those spurts into a full game."

The Silverstreaks took an 11-point lead into the break behind a 33-point half. That helped them overcome a balanced scoring attack by Upsala that saw them put three players in double figures.

The win makes it three straight for Osakis after the Silverstreaks dropped their first game of the season by one against Brandon-Evansville.

Alisha Sethre stepped up for Ashby with 20 points, five rebounds, four steals and four assists to lead the way. Amanda Johnson also contributed a double-double with 13 points and 12 rebounds.

"I was happy with our aggressive play," head coach John Kent said. "But we still turned the ball over too much and didn't shoot the ball like we are capable of. It was good to see some solid contributing play from the bench tonight."

The Arrows built a big lead in the first half with their defense, holding the Comets to 12 points in the first 18 minutes on their way to an 18 point halftime lead. Ashby never looked back from there as the Arrows improved their record to 2-2 and 1-2 in the LEC.

The West Central Area girls' basketball team continued its roll through the first stretch of the season last Thursday night.

The Knights moved to 4-0 with a 73-55 win over Frazee behind three players in double figures. Both teams were undefeated coming into the contest, but WCA left no doubt who was the better team on this night.

Caitlin Peterson scored 21 points, and Liza Torgerson and April Nelson chipped in with 19 and 15, respectively.

The Hornets were able to stay in the game in the first half behind four triples and 16 points from Abby Berven. Peterson and Torgerson combatted that by combining for 19 points themselves to give their team a 36-28 lead at the break.

WCA then used six threes in the second half to help pull away with the 18-point win.

"Our defense was relentless tonight," head coach Pat Anderson said. "Our depth was a key as we kept bringing in fresh players to wear down our opponent. Nicole Lindor, [Alyssa] Blair, Jen Froemming and Jenny Starner all gave us very good minutes off the bench. Right now these girls are playing very good together. Their chemistry is great."

The Knights go to 4-0 overall and Frazee falls to 2-1.
