Rangers get win on Youth Night!

January 13, 2013
By Jen Wagner of Forest Lake Girls Basketball

Forest Lake finishes “Woodbury Week” with two wins beating the Royals on Friday night 60 to 54.  The Rangers entered this week with games against the two Woodbury area high schools going 2-0 against East Ridge and Woodbury.  Forest Lake used an intense man defense to slow the scoring threat of the Royals top scorers, but the game remained close in the first half.  After some half time adjustments, the Rangers went right to work with a ball control offense and good shot selection to build a lead that would result in Forest Lake’s fourth conference win.  A balanced offensive attack and switching man defense was too much for the visiting Royals.  Forest Lake hits the road next week for two games starting with a visit to Stillwater on Tuesday evening.

The Forest Lake sophomore team hosted the two Woodbury teams this week losing both games by small margins.  The Rangers have relied on a stingy defense scheme during the last few games to provide the best opportunities for success.  Unfortunately the offensive response has not been enough to match their opponents leading to the loses.  On Friday the Rangers had some three point shooting success closing the early game deficit by the visiting Royals, but ran out of time finishing on the short end of a 41-35 loss.  The Rangers travel to Stillwater Tuesday for their last conference game before the conference rotation begins again.
