MOORHEAD — The finishing touch on Battle Lake’s 81-71 boys basketball win over Pelican Rapids on Saturday at Concordia College was as fierce as the Battlers’ performance.


Daniel Marso’s dunk with 24 seconds remaining was the exclamation point for Battle Lake.

As Marso came down from gripping the rim, the No. 4 team in Minnesota Class 1A moved up to 20-0 overall and knocked off its fourth Class 2A team.

Battle Lake coach Dan Peterka is only somewhat impressed.
