The Parkers Prairie boys basketball team made a statement Wednesday night at the University of Minnesota-Morris. The top-seeded Panthers (24-4) throttled the second-seeded Ortonville Trojans (21-3) 72-56 in the Section 6A-South championship game – clinching a spot in the section final on Friday night.
Everything was playing out exactly how Alexandria hoped it would through 30 minutes in the Section 8AAA semifinals on Friday night in Moorhead. The third-seeded Cardinals led second-seeded Sartell-St. Stephen 46-33 with about six minutes left. It was still an 11-point lead with four minutes to go, but that’s when the Sabres stormed back, scoring 20 of the final 24 points to shock Alexandria with a 55-50 loss. It sends Sartell to the section title game against Bemidji on Thursday night.
