Erskine, MN — The Fertile-Beltrami Falcons were able to redeem themselves versus the Win E Mac Patriots on Thursday night after a tough loss to the Crookston Pirates two nights ago.
Fertile-Beltrami started the game on a 9-0 run that really cemented the tempo for the rest of the game. The Falcons defense was stifling in the first half with constant ball pressure forcing the Win E Mac Patriots into 18 turnovers in the first half alone and 29 for the game.
Aubree Steffes had a nice night for the Falcons putting up a game high 18 points. Junior Jacelyn Pinske was also solid for the Falcons with 16 points and Marin Roragen was good off the bench with 11 points.
The Patriots shooting struggles continued versus the Falcons. Coming into the game the Patriots were averaging only 21.5 ppg. Win E Mac did put up a season high 23 points last night but in reality it should have been more like 35-40 points after more than a handful of missed shots closed to the hoop that would be considered “bunnies” and only shooting 5/10 from the free throw line.
In the end the Falcons defeated the Patriots 69-23 improving to 2-1 on the season. The Falcons will be put to the test next Monday night against the Fosston Greyhounds and the Patriots fall to 0-4 and will matchup next versus Park Christian.
