Fertile, MN — The Fertile-Beltrami Falcons got off to a hot start on Friday night versus the Bagley Flyers in route to their sixth straight victory of the season.
Before the game it appeared that the Flyers had a size advantage that they could use against Fertile-Beltrami but the Falcons turned that in their own favor continually pushing the basketball in transition and eventually tiring out the Bagley Flyers. Freshman Derek Sorenson for the Falcons was the catalyst to a big first half draining four 3-pointers. The Falcons lead 37-19 at the half.
In the final 18 minutes of play, things began to snowball for the Flyers. A combination of poor shooting, turnovers and calls from the officials that didn’t go their way was the story in the second half for Bagley that eventually lead to their defeat, 68-49.
The Falcons win their sixth straight game of the season and improve to 6-1. Fertile-Beltrami will travel to Moorhead on Tuesday the ninth to take on the Park Christian Falcons. For Bagley, they fall to 2-5 and will take on the Lake Park-Audubon Raiders on Tuesday.
