Miles Wilson

Sophomore Miles Wilson is getting some important minutes off the bench for the SCF varsity. The Saints split a pair of HON games last week and are currently in third place in the 10-team conference. 

When and Where: Jan. 26 at Cumberland

Outcome: Cumberland 69, St. Croix Falls 61 

Summary: The Cumberland Beavers opened up an eight point lead by halftime and had the same lead by the time the game with St. Croix Falls ended. Cumberland had a big edge in free throw as they hit 26-of-35 (74%) while the Saints got to the line 18 times, converting eight (44%).

Highlights: SCF had three players in double figures with Payton Christenson and Jared Lessman leading the way with 20 points each. Connor Olson added 11 for the Saints

Comments: “We had our chances throughout the game but couldn’t quite get that big bucket to pull us ahead,” St. Croix Falls Coach Chad Hall said. “The guys played some solid defense but Cumberland did a great job of hitting their free throws down the stretch.”

When and Where: Jan. 29 at St. Croix Falls 

Outcome: St. Croix Falls 68, Chetek-Weyerhaeuser 55 

Summary: The game was closer than most people would have expected as Chetek-Weyerhaeuser came into the game still looking for their first win of the season. The Saints led by just a couple of points at intermission and gradually pulled away after the break to earn the 13 point decision.

Highlights: Lessman led a trio of Saints in double figures with

24 points. Christenson added 14 points to the Saints’ collection and Olson dumped in 11. Chetek-Weyerhaeuser did major damage from behind the arc with nine treys accounting for 27 of their 55 points.

Comments: “Good conference win,” Hall remarked. “We struggled to shoot to start the game but the second half we were able to get the ball inside and stretch our lead. We did a great job of controlling the boards in the second half as well.”

What this Means: The Saints currently reside in third place in the 10-team Heart O’North conference. Cameron leads the pack with a 10-0 record followed by Northwestern at 10-2. SCF is at 8-4 in the HON (10-5 overall) and is one-half game ahead of fourth place Cumberland.

Upcoming: St. Croix Falls is back in HON action on Feb. 6th when they travel to Bloomer to challenge the Blackhawks. On Feb. 9th Barron will visit the SCF campus for another HON game.
