Goodhue spoils Northern Freeze's unbeaten season

Goodhue wins 51-44 in Class A semifinal

MINNEAPOLIS - The previously undefeated Northern Freeze (28-1) found their shooting accuracy to be about as cold as it was outside. They never led in their 51-44 loss to the Wildcats of Goodhue (25-7) in Friday's Minnesota Class A girls basketball semifinals.

The Freeze made just fewer than 30 percent of their 54 field goal attempts, 16 of which came from three-point range and of which only two were successful.

Both teams finished with a player with a double-double: victorious Goodhue had senior Grace Majerus with 10 points and 10 rebounds; and the Freeze had senior MacKinzie Magner with 12 points and also 10 rebounds. Junior Liza Hoglo had a game-high 19 points for the Freeze, while senior Laura Watson added 13 for the Wildcats.

Goodhue’s win earns the Wildcats a spot in the championship game.

The Northern Freeze, a co-op including Newfolden and Karsltad, meets Parkers Prairie for third place on Saturday.
