Comets struggle in return, fall to PanthersPublished 10:59am Friday, January 10, 2014
PARKERS PRAIRIE — The Hillcrest girls basketball team came out a bit rusty Thursday against Little Eight Conference foe Parkers Prairie as the Panthers were able to seal a 62-38 victory.
“We we’re hurt by their press,” Comets’ coach Charlie Brue said. “Our conditioning wasn’t so good after a long break, but the girls played hard right up to the end.”
The Panthers were able to build a 31-16 lead at the break and continued to pour on the points in the second half.
Kelsey Nersten led the Comets with 12 points, while teammate Megan Aasness added 11 of her own.
The Comets will look to regain the success it found before the break as it travels to take on the Verndale Pirates at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.
