The Packers defeated Winona 64-56 on Tuesday night, picking up a much needed road victory. Austin trailed early 5 to 7 but took the lead and never trailed again in the half. The Winhawks tied the game at the half 27 to 27, but Austin had a balanced night scoring and some great defense down the stretch to come away with the victory.
Austin scoring: Both Gach, 12; Tate Hebrink, 10; Kyle Oberbroeckling, 9; Levi Vierkandt, 9; Zach Coffey, 8; Nik Gasner, 8; Gach Gach, 7; Dylan Gasner, 1; free throws: 60 percent (9-for-15)
Austin will be home on Friday for the “Hall of Fame Game” vs. Faribault. Reminder, the Mayo game next week will be on Monday, Jan. 26th, not Tuesday.
