Sussenguth, a 6-7 freshman forward from Willmar, was a force anywhere near the iron. He made 10-of-15 shots and also pulled down 10 rebounds.

Derek Eisenschenk, a sophomore guard from Cold Spring, went inside for two key baskets in the last two minutes; the second with 14 seconds left to seal the win. He finished with 16 points.

Ben Moser, a sophomore from Paynesville, hit a three-pointer to start the second half and the Warriors led 39-32. But they could never shake the Raiders in the high-tempo game.

Quentin Wilford led Central Lakes with 16 points. Caleb Nurnberger hit four 3-pointers and finished with 15 points.

The Warriors' defense smothered the Raiders' inside game and Sussenguth and Cory Niefeld (14 points, six rebounds) answered at the other end time after time.

Down the stretch Warriors shooters made 7 of 8 at the line and went 18 of 22 for the game.

Cory Nietfeld, a sophomore from Paynesville, had 14 points and six rebounds for the Warriors. Beau Bredeson, a freshman from Marshall, dished out 12 assists.
