The Battle Lake girls’ basketball team cruised past hosting the Hillcrest Comets 53-35 Tuesday.

“In the first half, we played a little too much one-on-one basketball,” Comets head coach Hannah Clark said. “I thought we did a better job in the second half of moving the ball around and getting everyone involved. Mackenzie Foss played really well on the offensive end had some nice finishes around the rim. Molly McGuire hit a couple shots from the outside and that helped open things up in the middle. Allison Marso for Battle Lake played a great game.”

Battle Lake was led in scoring by Allison Marso with 23 points, while teammate Grace Van Erp added 19 tallies.

Mackenzie Foss led the Comets with 19 points, while teammate Anna Rasmussen grabbed 10 rebounds in the game.

The Comets will look to rebound as they welcome in Wheaton at 7:15 p.m. Thursday. The Battlers will now host Rothsay at 7:15 p.m. Thursday.
