Successful Holiday Break

December 30, 2012
By Jen Wagner of Forest Lake Girls Basketball

The Forest Lake Varsity and JV teams played in the Rogers Holiday Tournament over break. The Varsity team beat St. Francis and a tough Anoka team to win the tournament. Both teams are section opponents and were great wins for the girls. Anna Eckert and Bailey Norby were both named to the All-Tournament Team. Although not named all-tournament, Emily Peters had a tremendous two games playing solid at point guard, handling the many different defense from Anoka and control the tempo of the game. The JV team was able to beat St. Francis in the first game and then lost a close game to Anoka to take 2nd. 

The Forest Lake Sophomore team finished a three day holiday tournament with 1 win and 2 losses.  The Dick’s Sporting annual tournament hosted at Osseo High School brings some of the best sophomore teams to the three day bracketed tournament.   In the opening game the Rangers played a talented Minnetonka team who was able to score from inside and outside range pushing the Rangers to the consolation bracket.  Minnetonka went on to win the tournament.  On Friday, Forest Lake matched up well against Irondale in more ways than one from size, experience and uniform colors.  Forest Lake held an early lead, but turnovers by the Rangers proved to be the difference as they lost their second game.  Returning for the final game on Saturday the Rangers played an inspired game.  Forest Lake had balanced scoring, reduced turnovers and finished strong on the free throw line beating a solid sophomore team from Eden Prairie.    Forest Lake returns to conference play on Friday against Park.
