Giants...er..Burros beat Patriots


Mon, Feb 20th, 2012
Posted in All Sports

A night after the Patriots lost to the Giants in the Super Bowl XLVI, the Hope Lutheran Patriots visited Lanesboro for a boys-girls double shot. The ladies offered up the night’s competition. With 7:00 to go, Lanesboro led 40-32. Hope then engineered an 8-1 run. Down two with 0:23 left, they took possession. With 0:05, Shaina Laska hit a 12-footer off glass to send the game to OT. Burro freshmen Bailey Gartner broke the ice with a bucket. A pair of FT’s by Bryn Harmon gave the home squad a 49-47 lead (1:19 left). Another freebie by Alisa Warnes put Lanesboro up 50-47 (0:10 left). The Patriots then got a quick two (50-49). Lanesboro was fouled and made a FT. With 0:02 left, HL tossed a full-court pass directly to Tazhia Aune. She took a very open 15-footer, that only found iron. Lanesboro survived 51-49, playing much of the 2nd half without Paige Hungerholt (two hard spills). Patriot sophomore Dakota Ellinghuysen was the game’s star (21 pts, 17 rebs, 4 ass, 3 stls, 2 blks). Laska added 11. Harmon paced the Burros (15 pts, 9 rebs). Hungerholt (8 pts, 14 rebs) and Warnes (10 pts, 8 rebs) also were busy. The boys then took the court. The Burros shredded the nets from deep, nailing 14 1st half triples, building a 57-30, halftime lead! That was basically all she wrote, except for history…

…Hanson Shreds Record Books

…Amidst the dissection, Braden Hanson started playing himself toward a couple records. Burro #21 pumped in 22 first half points. In the second, he kept at it, as, though down a bunch, a couple Hope players weren’t exactly throwing in the towel. At 43 points, Hanson was just two shy of the Lanesboro boy’s all-time record of 1,352, set in 1962 by Bill Johnson. A 3-pointer later, his 9th of the night (15 attempts), Hanson attained history. He added a subsequent steal and a lay-in to set another mark, the single game Burro scoring record at 48 (on 18-28 FG’s, 3-3 FT’s). It’s the most in the county (topping R-P’s Nick Thompson, 43), and SE Minnesota for that matter, this season. Braden amazingly outshined Hope’s Caleb Forst. The 5’8” sophomore G was 9-12 from three, 14-22 FG’s (plus a FT), for 38 points! He outdid his classmate Jason Klug, who flirted with a triple double (was two rebounds and three assists away with a lot of game left, finished with 18 pts, 9 rebs, and 7 assists). With Cory Strom (15 points, 11 assists) and Luke Rogers (12) aiding Hanson, the Burros also fell just short of the c .....

It doesn’t happen very often. It takes a lot of effort. It takes a lot of overall skills. Not much else needs to be said. The numbers speak for themselves. Versus Wabasha-Kellogg, R-P senior forward Kenzie Lind scored 18 points, grabbed 14 rebound .....

“Nick T...” for 1,000

Posted in All Sports

If an announcer were to call a basketball game in which Rushford-Peterson Trojan Nick Thompson played, he’d likely use the phrase ‘Nick T…for three!’ It rhymes. It offers clarity (Nick’s younger brother Seth is a teammate so saying ‘Thom .....

Smith tops 1,000

Posted in Sports

What Mabel-Canton senior center Steve Smith does on the court isn't necessarily flashy. There are no three-pointers, pull-up jump shots, or dipsy-do drives to the lane. He isn't the new age big-man, or more likely to gravitate to the perimeter versu .....

For 16-plus minutes of the Lanesboro boys' dual with Hope Lutheran, the Burros were a bit tight. They were a little anxious. A teammate was on the cusp. Braden Hanson, the Burros multi-talented 6'2" senior guard, came into the contest with 986 caree .....
