Willmar ousted by Mankato West
ST. PETER -- The Mankato West Scarlets stopped Willmar cold on Friday night with three-point shooting and a grinding defense in the Section 2AAA semifinals at Gustavus Adolphus College.
The No. 1 seed dismissed the overmatched Cardinals from the post-season 55-38 to advance to Thursday's championship game in Mankato.
Willmar had one lead, 4-2, and the last tie was 7-7 when Jordan Smith sank what would be Willmar's only three-pointer.
