Somehow, that seems like a better headline than “Packers drop championship game.” After winning a school-record 24 straight, though, the ’81 Packers couldn’t quite get over the hump in their second-half comeback against Anoka.
Anoka had led by four at halftime, and scored the first three baskets of the second half to grab a double-digit lead. The Packers fought back hard and got to within four point a few times with a chance to cut it to two, but could get no closer. Here are the good parts:
Tomorrow night we’re expecting a great turnout of the old gang at Torge’s from 5-6:30, and then coming to the Packers’ regular-season finale against Rochester Century.
Tomorrow morning I’ll be posting video of the pre-game introductions and the medal ceremony from the championship game so you can get a good look at the Packers as we were…and see how we’ve changed over the last three decades.
Should be a blast!
