Willmar busts out early, routs Sartell


WILLMAR -- The Willmar Cardinals pushed their winning streak to three with a 75-56 win over Sartell in Central Lakes Conference boys basketball on Tuesday.

Taylor Filipek, the Cardinals' leading scorer, missed the game with strep throat.

His points were hardly needed as the Cardinals burst to a 16-5 lead on Sam Esboldt's three-pointer on the way to scoring 16 points to go with six steals.

Willmar beat Sartell 61-55 in the first meeting on Dec. 22.
