Knights topple Owls, Warriors, run win streak to six
The Knights’ boys basketball team entered last week with a four-game winning streak. They added a couple more wins onto that total as they claimed road victories over Hancock, 73-44, and Wheaton/Herman-Norcross, 83-48, on Tuesday and Friday nights respectively.
The wins were both Section 6A and Pheasant Conference wins which helped the Knights maintain their top spots in those standings. They’re currently 3-0 (10-1 overall) and in first place in the Pheasant Conference standings, just ahead of W/H-N (3-2, 6-5). The Knights are 7-0 and in first place in the Section 6A standings, just ahead of Parkers Prairie (6-0, 10-1).
The Knights will be tested heavily this week as they have games against #2 state-ranked Henning (11-1) on Tuesday, at Ortonville (3-3) on Thursday, and against Lac qui Parle Valley (8-2) on Saturday.
