“Always fun to break up the holiday layoff with a game, and I thought our kids were ready and played well,” head coach Jason Kleis said. “Randy Rosenquist did a ton of great things and had 10 assists. Isaac Bruns played well, and Jaxon Hennies and Joey Bryan really gave us a scoring spark. We had several other guys contribute, Carson Peck hit a big 3 off the bench. A fun game but our path gets a lot tougher after the new year.”
