Girls basketball roundup: Willmar falls to Rocori
Willmar Minnesota 2208 Trott Ave. SW / P.O. Box 839 56201

COLD SPRING — The Rocori Spartans played much better than their winless record might indicate, stifling Willmar with their zone defense and solid rebounding in a 48-37 Central Lakes Conference victory Friday night at Rocori High School.

Willmar, now 2-1, plays at Mankato West at 4:30 p.m. today.

Rocori improved to 1-3 overall and plays host to Little Falls on Tuesday.

Rocori and Willmar were tied 19-19 at half but the Cardinals were unable to solve the Spartans’ 2-3 zone, said Cardinals head coach Dustin Carlson.

“They’re guards pressured hard and we could never settle down and we didn’t shoot very well,” said Carlson, whose team was limited to 10 field goals. “They did a good job rebounding out of their zone so that really limited out second-chance points.”

Rocori’s Shaina Schmitz had 18 points and Kristen Mehr had 10.

Willmar was led by Kalley Fosso, who had 9 points and 11 rebounds. Anne Dunham had 5 points, 6 rebounds and 3 steals.
