Otters calm Storm 71-20Published 9:58am Monday, January 13, 2014
The Fergus Falls girls basketball team can win in a variety of ways. On Saturday, the Otters used post players Anna Monke and Kristin Traiser to leave its mark as it downed Central Lakes Conference opponent Sauk Rapids-Rice 71-20.
The Storm looked to be more of a drizzle for the Otter girls as Monke dropped in 22 points and pulled down 13 rebounds and Traiser backed her way into the paint for 11 tallies.
Not to be outdone, perimeter player and leading scorer for the Otters, Bailey Strand, supplied 21 points of her own. Floor general Brianna Rasmusson would only score nine points, but was effective in passing and on defense, recording 11 assists and eight steals in the win.
The Otters, who are still in the No. 1 spot in Class AAA, will travel to take on the Brainerd Warriors in a 7:30 p.m. Tuesday tilt.
