A slow first half was too much to overcome as the Packers lost to #1 AAA Red Wing on the road tonight.
Poor shooting and good Red Wing defense limited Austin to 13 first half points. Red Wing was able to hit a few three’s and a buzzer beater from 17 feet to go into the half leading a 25-13.
Austin clawed back in the second half getting as close as 6 with a little over four minutes left. Red Wing was able to make enough free throws down the stretch to close out the game.
Scoring for Austin – Both Gach 20, Duoth Gach 12, Hebrink 8, Coffey 5, Manyuon 2.
Scoring for Red Wing – Toivonen 14, Sevlie 14, Munson 12, Bryan 10, Kelly 3, Adams 3.
