Willmar trips up Sartell

SARTELL -- Willmar junior guard Kyle Townswick seemingly couldn't miss from long range Friday night, especially in the second half when he scored 16 of his game-high 19 points, as the Cardinals topped Sartell 58-39 in a Central Lakes Conference boys basketball game.

Townswick hit five 3-pointers in the second half. He potted four treys on Tuesday when he scored 28 points in a two-point loss to Alexandria.

Tyler Horning got Willmar off to a fast start by hitting two long shots for a 5-0 lead. Thefts led to baskets by Townswick and Matt Roisum and a 9-2 lead.

It was 26-19 at halftime. Townswick hit the first off his second-half treys for a 34-27 lead, then sophomore Mike Dunham, off the bench, hit a three-pointer and it was now 37-29. Townswick followed with another trey and a lay-up off a steal for a 42-29 bulge and Willmar was well on its way to squaring its record at 1-1.

Horning and Cory Hanson each finished with seven points, Roisum six while Ross VanHauen grabbed eight rebounds.

Justin Brandt had 11 points for Sartell (0-3), which also struggled on offense in earlier loses to Fergus Falls (56-40) and Monticello (73-46).

Willmar is at St. Cloud Tech Thursday.
