For a while it wasn’t close, as the Packers fell behind 23-7, but then the Pack rallied to cut the deficit to 6 at halftime. Austin got as close as 1 in the second half, and had the ball near the end with a chance to tie (or win with a three), but fell just short of completing the rally.
Let’s go to the tape…
Given the closeness of the game, and the relative low score (53-39), I included all the Packers’ made free throws this time.
Here are the Austin Daily Herald and Post-Bulletin accounts of the game. Joe Aase had 14 for the Packers, followed by Matt Duren (10), Zach Wessels (9), Tom Aase (7), Jay Ettinger (6) and Andrew Kaiser (3).
The Pack will try to get back on the winning track on Tuesday, Jan. 4 when they travel to Rochester to take on John Marshall.
