Slaying the Irish

Final score in boys' basketball action tonight: B-B-E 57, Maple Lake 55! The Jaguars led 25-23 at halftime against the defending conference champions.

The Irish were just one game out of first place in the Central Minnesota Conference entering tonight's game. Maple Lake is now 5-2 in the CMC and sitting in a virtual tie for second place with Pierz. State-ranked (#9 Class 2A) Eden Valley-Watkins is still on top all by themselves at 6-0. The Jaguars are 4-3 in the CMC in fourth place by themselves.

Next for the Jaguars (9-6 overall) is a home game on Thursday against Paynesville (3-9, 1-5).

It was an interesting night in the CMC! See the scores below.
