#3 Northern Freeze vs. #2 Warren-Alvarado-Oslo – BBB (96.7 FM KKCQ)

Thief River Falls, MN — The Northern Freeze are advancing to the Section 8A West Sub-Section Championship after their 70-59 victory over the Warren-Alvarado-Oslo Ponies in the Quarterfinals.

The Freeze were lead in scoring by Senior Maximus Clop who had 28 points and hauled in a game high 18 rebounds. The Northern Freeze did a great job of adjusting on the fly when the Ponies switched up their defenses throughout the game, something they struggled with in their regular season meetings. The Ponies really couldn’t muster anything on the offensive end as multiple times throughout the game, The Freeze defended during long possessions. And that was a large part of their victory.

The Northern Freeze will take on the Sacred Heart Eagles in the West Sub-Section Championship on Tuesday the 15th at 6 p.m. back at Ralph Engelstad Arena.
