Spirit Lake vs. Estherville


Spirit Lake used a big first half to get by Estherville-Lincoln Central 51-32 in the first round of the Class 3A Region 1 playoffs on Saturday night.  Neither team could find the hoop early in the first quarter, but the Indians got their offense going and finished the first quarter on a 13-0 run to lead 13-3 after one.  That offensive burst continued in the second quarter as the Indians built a 38-12 lead at halftime.  The Midgets would actually outscore the Indians 20-13 in the second half, but it wouldn't be enough to get the upset.  Joie Veldman led Spirit Lake with 12 points.  Anna Brown added 10 and the Indians are 15-7.  They will host Algona in the regional semifinal on Wednesday night.  Hear the game on KUOO.  Morgan White paced ELC with 12.  The Midgets season ends at 4-18.  They graduate seniors Carson Gjerde, Ciara Minion, Colleen Humble, Cyndie Anderson, and Bridseide Segura.
