Willmar led 30-28 at halftime and was trailing by only six points with eight minutes left in the second half.

But from there out it was all Fergus.

“We played so hard the first half we just seemed to run out of gas,” said Cardinals coach Dustin Carlson.

“Suddenly, we couldn’t make a layup and they’d push it the other way and we couldn’t keep up.”

 Strand, already selected once as CLC Performer of the Week-Offense, poured in 17 points post-intermission after scoring just 8 in the first half, six of those on a pair of three-pointers.

Strand led three teammates also in double figures. The Otters, who shot 50 percent, are 5-0 and lead the conference with a 3-0 record.

Willmar shot 35 percent, though the teams were even in rebounds.

Heather Horning’s 13 points led the Willmar offense. Courtney Magnuson and Anne Dunham each finished with 10- points. McKenzie Hastad had 7 rebounds.

The Cardinals (1-2, 3-3) will host Sauk Rapids on Tuesday.
