Willmar slips past Marshall


WILLMAR -- The Willmar Cardinals advanced to the semifinals of the Section 2AAA girls basketball tournament by eclipsing No. 7-seed Marshall 64-51 on Tuesday evening.

The Cardinals (21-3), the No. 2 seed behind Worthington, will meet No. 3 Hutchinson (15-11) at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Minnesota State, Mankato.

Willmar finished unbeaten on its home court while stretching its winning streak to 12.

But it was a slow start after an 11-day layoff.
