The Waconia girls basketball team rallied from a tough three-game week, winning a tight game at talented and hot-shooting St. Louis Park Friday, earning a 75-66 win.
“After two heartbreakers early in the week, a lot of teams might pack it in and fold for a third in a 3-game week,” said coach Dusty Neibauer. “Instead, our Wildcats rallied and played one of their best games of the year and stole one against a talented SLP team that has taken some of the best teams in the state to the wire. When they are one shooting from deep, they can be extremely deadly, and indeed, on this night they made 10 three’s. But, through a combination of timely steals, backcuts, attacks of the basket, and free throws down the stretch of the second half, as well as stingy defense and rebounding, the Wildcats pulled off a fantastic, whole-team win, with major contributions for all players involved.”
