Rangers end regular season with a VICTORY!

February 26, 2012
By Jen Wagner of Forest Lake Girls Basketball

Forest Lake closed out the regular season with an impressive road victory over Hastings on Friday night 74-36.   The confident Rangers outplayed the Raiders in every aspect of the game resulting in a double digit lead after the first 18 minutes for play.  The team was led in scoring by the post play of Sam Anderson, Bailey Norby and KP Palo with over half of the Ranger points.  The team controlled the boards, shot a season high from the free throw line and managed the ball with less than 10 turnovers for the entire game.  This momentum will now carry Forest Lake into section play against Blaine on Thursday night.  The Rangers, seeded number 3, will host this first round game.

The Forest Lake sophomore team finished its season on Friday with back to back wins including its latest victory over Hastings 33-30.  The Rangers, now playing with more confidence, found ways to get high percentage shots against the host Raiders, but found it difficult to convert.  The game remained close throughout with both teams sharing leads, but neither team ready to pull away.  Hasting built a six point lead deep into the second half, but the young Rangers responded with increased defensive pressure and balanced scoring by Chelsie Bethke, Dana Larson and Jenny Larsen to overtake the Raiders leading to the victory.  Coach Keller acknowledged their efforts after the game and thanked them for their hard work, effort and pride throughout the season.
