Packers Impressive in Century Scrimmage

28 Nov

The Packers looked strong today in a scrimmage held at Century High School in Rochester. Six teams were involved, including Austin, Albert Lea, Century, Rochester John Marshall, Stewartville and Winona Cotter.

The Packers matched up first with Stewartville, with about half of the one-hour session devoted to half-court situations before a brief full-court session. The second-round against Winona Cotter was all full-court scrimmaging. Scores weren’t kept against either, but the boys looked sharp.

In the final session, the Pack faced off in a simulated 20-minute game against JM. Here are some of the highlights of the 41-16 win:
