Email News Alerts

Battle Lake took a tight three-game lead at halftime and fired up a big second half outscoring New York Mills 30-12 en route to a 53-32 Section 6A victory in Battle Lake.


"We've started our last few games out really well, and this one was no different," Eagles Head Coach JJ Weller said. "We had an early lead due to some good passes, shots, and running the floor. We were playing up-tempo and with confidence and things were working for us."
