Pillager 58, Patriots 51

Pequot Lakes led the non-conference game 28-23 at the half only to be outscored in the second half as the Huskies’ EJ Ziegler had 22 points and had 14 rebounds on Tuesday, Feb. 12.

The difference in the game came at the line where the Huskies were 24 of 31 while the Patriots made just four of eight chances.

“We just didn’t shoot the ball well, and we made too many turnovers,” said Pequot Lakes coach Garry Grewe, “but the big difference was (Pillager) attempting 23 more free throws that we did.”

Redmond had 18 points to lead the Patriots while Kreitz added 10.
