Mahnomen/Waubun 63 at Park Christian 42 (GBB) 101.5 FM
Moorhead, MN — The Thunderbirds and the Falcons duked it out in a high energy game on Thursday night in Moorhead.
The Falcons were hungry to avenge their loss to the Thunderbirds earlier in the season. In their first matchup a week and half ago, the Thunderbirds brought down a school record 67 rebounds en route to their 28 victory. On Thursday night the Falcons played the Thunderbirds tough defensively by slowing them down in transition. The game stayed within striking distance until late in the first half when the Falcons couldn’t buy a bucket and the Thunderbirds lead at the half 34-21.
Coming out of the locker room Park Christian couldn’t get going on offense and only scored 21 second half points while Mahnomen/Waubun Senior Kendra Syverson scored 17 of her game high 29 points in the second half alone. Mahnomen/Waubun went on to win the game 63-42.
The Thunderbirds move to 7-2 and will be at RLCC on Tuesday the 16th to take on the Mustangs. That game will be carried on 1480 AM/99.7 FM KKCQ. The Falcons fall to 3-5 and will travel to Lake Park-Audubon for a matchup against the Raiders on Monday.
