Boys Playoffs: MLWR @ Hinckley-Finlayson 72-60 HF Wins
On Wednesday night, the opening round of the Section 7 Class AA playoffs began for boys around the listening area. We covered the Moose Lake-Willow River Rebels as they traveled to Hinckley to face the Jaguars of Hinckley-Finlayson.
The Rebels stormed out to a nine-point first half lead, and were up 37-28 at the break. The Jaguars weren’t about to lay down though, and scored the first six points in the second half to get within striking distance. Hinckley-Finlayson put together a big run, outscoring the Rebels 17-6 in the first 6:30 of the second half to pull away for the victory. Senior Brady Harth led the Jags with 22 points while backcourt mate Tim Rubbelke hit two second half threes and scored 20 points to fuel the run. The Jaguars will now face the Mora Mustangs on Saturday night in Duluth.
