A state veteran Sauk Centre team grabbed a 35-23 half-time lead and then held the Wadena-Deer Creek Wolverines at bay in the second half Tuesday en route to a 59-48 girls' basketball win in Wadena.


"Sauk is a very good team," WDC Head Coach Keith Ferris said. "I thought we played very well tonight, especially for the first game."

The Mainstreeters are coming off a 27-5 season that saw them reach the Class AA state finals before falling to Providence Academy 46-40.
