Norman County East/Ulen-Hitterdal took a 33-21 halftime lead in Pelican Rapids on Thursday night and went on to win the game by the score of 57-47.
“We had a hard time knocking down shots consistently against their zone defense and they really took away the paint from us as we got nothing going to the basket,” said Pelican Rapids Head Coach John Gullingsrud. “They were able to get the game to be played at their pace as well as our defense wasn’t able to give us a spark either.”
Logan Fahje scored 14 points to lead the Vikings and Logan Petznick added 9.
NCE-UH was led by Broden Lien with 26 and Logan Miller with 10.
