Rivalry renewed


Mon, Mar 14th, 2011
Posted in Sports

One meeting (headlined by a miraculous buzzer beater) wasn't good enough for bitter rivals Lanesboro and Fillmore Central. With a little help from tournament seeders, the boys' squads needed/got a second. The Falcons began quick, jumping out 7-0 and 11-5. They then sat at 11 points for nearly six minutes, and Lanesboro assumed command. At that half, the home Burros led 35-23. That twelve-point lead would grow to as high as 18 on two occasions early in the second stanza, before Fillmore started chipping and whittling. By the 7:03 mark, a series of successful possessions had the Falcons almost back to even at 50-52. Twice more in the final few minutes, FC got to within two. They even had the ball, down three, with 21 seconds left. One travel and two Braden Hanson (not so ironically the guy who sank FC in meeting number one) free throws later, and it was a wrap. Fillmore Central 62, Lanesboro 67. The Falcons Drew Bahl led all scorers with 17. Colton Hampel and Zach Olstad each had 13. Lanesboro was led by Braden Hanson's 14. The Burros got six or more from six other players including an unexpected trio of three's (9 points) by (regular season B-squader) sophomore Erik Peterson. FC ends the year 4-16 in three Rivers, 8-19 overall.
