Hot shooting gives girls' basketball squad first conference victory

Maple Lake hosted the first of three games this week against the Eden Valley-Watkins Eagles on Tuesday, January 25.  
The Eagles came out in a matchup zone that kept the Irish guessing for most of the game, while the Irish played a multitude of defenses trying to find an answer for the Eagles’ inside game.
“We got off to a slow start on both ends and found ourselves down 16-2 early. The girls fought hard to get back into it before the half, but it is tough to overcome that deficit,” said Head Coach Adam Ronnenberg.
