The Packers went on the road last night for their Big Nine conference opener, and came away with a convincing 82-50 win over Faribault.

Pressure defense and hot outside shooting, including 10 three-pointers in the first half, got the Austin boys out to an early 23-13 lead, which they stretched to 42-27 at halftime. The Pack scored first in the second half and never looked back.

Ten Packers got into the scoring act, led by Joe Aase (17), Zach Wessels (14) and Zach Fadness (11), followed closely by Tom Aase (9), Max Coffey (8), Andrew Kaiser (8) and Jay Ettinger (7). Colin Weisert (4), Matt Duren (2) and Goliath Oboyo (2). The Packers were also perfect (6-6) from the free throw line.

Here are the highlights. Note the expression of dismay at the Packers’ shooting by the Faribault coach just before halftime.
