Eagles nip NRHEG boys in sub-section title game



The NRHEG boys’ basketball team was looking to avenge two regular-season losses against Gopher Conference champs Maple River on Wednesday, March 4, but the Panthers’ late rally came up heartachingly short as they fell 64-63 in the 2AA South Sub-Section championship ame.

The Panthers have faced their share of adversity in games throughout the season and built a reputation in their 2014-15 campaign of responding well and battling to the end. That character was on display against the top-seeded Eagles at Minnesota State-Mankato.

Both teams were slow out of the gate as it took nearly 11 minutes for the Eagles to build a 10-5 lead. The Panthers would answer with a 10-4 run to take a 15-14 edge before Maple River’s Jonah Brieter began lighting up the scoreboard. Brieter would score the Eagles’ next six points to put Maple River up 21-17 at the half.

Wagner tops 1,000 points in Section 2AA opener

The NRHEG girls’ basketball team split with the WEM Buccaneers during the 2014-15 regular season.

The Bucs broke the tie last Thursday.

WEM ended the Panthers’ season 60-48 in the Section 2AA tournament at Mankato East High School. NRHEG finished the season with a record of 14-12. WEM improved to 18-8 and advanced to the Section 2AA South Sub-Section finals against top seed St. Peter.

The Panthers, seeded third in the sub-section, chased the second-seeded Bucs all night, falling behind 5-0 and 9-1 to start the game.

“We tried to run and push the ball down the floor, but it is hard to run when they make their shots,” said Panthers head coach Onika Peterson. “Offensively, we got off the shots that we wanted, but we couldn't make a basket.”

NRHEG boys advance to sub-section title game



The NRHEG boys’ basketball team stormed into Sub-Section 2AA play last week with a pair of impressive wins to help build momentum toward a showdown with Gopher Conference champion Maple River in the sub-section finals.

NRHEG 59, Waseca 50

Three-pointers proved to be a dangerous weapon for the Panthers in their 59-50 win over Waseca on Friday, Feb. 27, in the Sub-Section 2AA South semifinals. This time, however, NRHEG would need to deploy their long-range shots to help them rally in the late going after trailing for most of the game.

Much like their regular-season meeting in Waseca on Feb. 3, the atmosphere on the neutral court in Mankato was electric. In the prior matchup, NRHEG jumped out to a 13-5 lead and held off the Bluejays for the rest of the game en route to a 74-53 win.

This time around, it was the No. 3-seeded Bluejays who jumped out to a quick 9-2 lead and kept the Panthers at bay for most of the game.
