Willmar tops Brainerd in home debut
WILLMAR -- Down by three points at haltime, the Willmar Cardinals outscored Brainerd by 20 points the second half to claim a 62-45 Central Lakes Conference win in boys basketball on Thursday.
Willmar struggled over the first 15 minutes in its home debut before knocking a double-digit deficit down to 31-28 at intermission.
"The first half, the boys looked nervous in their first home game," said coach Steve Grove. "It was a good crowd and it took them a while to settle down."
