The NRHEG girls’ basketball team ended the regular season against possibly the toughest team it could face in the postseason.

The Panthers hosted Section 2AA favorite St. Peter Monday, Feb. 23 and lost a 49-40 nonconference decision at New Richland. The Panthers, 9-3 in Gopher Valley Conference play, finished the regular season with a record of 13-11. 

The Saints started the game strong, scoring their first eight points on transition baskets. They led 19-14 at halftime.

According to Panthers coach Onika Peterson, free-throw shooting was a key factor.

“They shot 18-for-30 from the line,” said Peterson. “We shot 5-for-18. We can’t shoot 27 percent from the free-throw line; they should be easy baskets.”
