Wolverines beat Rangers at their own game
Keith Ferris saw his Wadena-Deer Creek Wolverines beat Crosby-Ironton's Rangers at their own game Tuesday night and post a 46-39 Mid-State Conference win.
The conference victory was WDC's first this season despite the fact that the Wolverines have a 9-3 record overall. Two of WDC's three losses are to conference foes Detroit Lakes and Staples-Motley, who share top honors in the Mid-State.
The Rangers came into Wadena Tuesday night sporting the lowest defensive point average in the conference. Randy Swanhorst's C-I cagers have only allowed an average of 42.1 points a game this season.
Emily Miron and Avery Jackson both collected 14 points for WDC. Missy Foote had 13 points for the Rangers while Chelsey Bonsante scored 12.
