NLS guard Taylor Thunstedt’s 40-point night included a 14-of-14 performance at the free throw line and the Wildcats defeated Glencoe-Silver Lake 62-52 Wright County Conference road win.

Dreier, Minnesota’ winningest girls coach, now has 799 victories and will go for the milestone when the Wildcats take on Waconia at 7:15 p.m. Thursday in New London.

The Wildcats fell behind 9-2 in the opening minutes of the game but righted themselves and outscored GSL 26-9 the rest of the first half to lead by 10 at the break.

NLS pushed the lead to as many as 17 points in the second half, but the Panthers were able to shave it to as few as four points before the Wildcats sealed up the game.

Thunstedt also had 8 steals, and Megan Thorson had 7 points and shared the team rebounding lead with Olivia Setterberg at 9.

NLS will face a different type of game against Waconia on Thursday.

The 5-7 Waconia Wildcats average 92.8 points per game but give up 91.8 per game.

Waconia’s Anna Schmitt is second among Twin Cities-area scorers averaging 28.5 points per game.

“It’s just unbelievable,” Dreier said of Waconia’s style. “They gun, press, pressure. It’s going to be something to see.”
