“Surviving” is the best way to describe the Lady Wolves’ 52-50 road win at Browerville Thursday night.
On paper, 13-3 Walker-Hackensack-Akeley was the better team, but factoring in a long road trip and that they hadn’t practiced or played a game in six days meant they were ripe for an upset.
The Tigers, who came in with a 4-12 mark, hung with the Wolves all night. WHA only led by four points at the break as they finished the game with 16 turnovers and shot only 36 percent from the floor.
Justine Day led the way with 20 points, eight rebounds and four assists, while Bri Raddatz scored 16 points, had six boards and led with four steals.
Megan Benjamin and Emma Deegan each scored six points, with Benjamin also grabbing six rebounds
The Wolves currently sit at No. 3 in the Section 5A North behind 17-0 Menahga and 12-4 Pine River-Backus.
This week the Wolves have four games in five days. They host Nevis and Laporte, and play at Pine River-Backus and Lake of the Woods.
Next week the Wolves host Kelliher-Northome and Park Rapids, and travel to Upsala.
