“We handled pressure pretty well and I’m happy with way we played,” said Willmar head coach Dustin Carlson. “But we didn’t contest some shots as well as we should and they were just on fire.”

Amanda Christianson hit three 3-pointers and scored 21 points, and Kendall Kohler scored 12 of her 13 points on 3-pointers.

Alexandria hit 10 of 18 3-point shots while the Cardinals made 3 of 9.

Willmar’s Kalley Fosso hit all 3 of the Cardinals’ 3-pointers and finished with 17 points.

Courtney Magnuson had 9 points and 4 rebounds.
