vs. Hancock
The Battle Lake Battlers played the Hancock Owls in the subsection semifinals on Saturday in Morris. The Battlers were defeated 69-61 in overtime.
Coach Dan Peterka commented after the game, ­­“I was very proud of our effort. We gave everything we had and left it all on the floor. We were able to push the game to overtime and unfortunately we ran out of gas. Our foul trouble and fatigue caught up with us in overtime and Hancock was able to pull away. We graduate three seniors; Isaiah Dorn, Colton Kirschbaum, and Bennet Cameron. They have been great role models for the program, and I am proud of the young men that these three have become.”
Scorers for the Battlers were; Nick VanErp (19), Colton Kirschbaum (15), Isaiah Dorn (14), Bennet Cameron (10), and Brady Scholten (3).
