PL girls lose to Esko

The visiting Pequot Lakes Patriots defeated Sebeka 82-56 in non-conference girls’ basketball action on Monday, Jan. 7.

Last week, the Patriots had two entirely different non-conference outcomes in home games as they defeated Perham 94-54 on Thursday, Jan. 3, and fell to Esko 84-46 on Saturday, Jan. 5.

The Patriots, 9-5 overall, are scheduled to play a Mid-State Conference game at Crosby-Ironton on Friday, Jan. 11, and host Wadena-Deer Creek on Tuesday, Jan. 15.

Esko 84, Patriots 46

On Saturday, Jan. 5, the Eskomos proved why they’re one of the top ranked teams in Class AA as they rolled over Pequot Lakes.

Esko’s 6-foot-9 center Savanna Trapp scored 18 points in the win. Trapp has signed to play with the UCLA Bruins.

Trapp wasn’t the only weapon for the Eskomos as they demolished the Patriots with 13 three-point baskets while the Patriots failed to scored beyond the three-point arc. Claudia Turner made six three-pointers as she finished with 24 points. Esko’s Marisa Shady had four three-point baskets and finished with 16 points.

Esko scored in spurts as they drained three straight three-point shots on three different occasions. The visitors grabbed an 11-2 lead and later expanded the edge to 17-4. Turner had 22 points in the first half as Esko enjoyed a 51-27 lead at intermission. The visitors kept the momentum going by outscoring the Patriots 33-19 in the second half.

“(Esko) is a very good team, and they got better when (Claudia) Turner switched from Barnum to Esko,” Pequot Lakes coach Jon Dale said. “Esko and Barnum will probably meet for the section title.”

Miller led the Patriots with 17 points.
