Warriors Grind Out Second-Straight Win 


Mandy Andree-Cordell scored a team-high 11 points and Rochester notched its second-straight victory in a 41-30 win over visiting Black Hills Thursday in 2A Evergreen Conference action.

“We had another solid team effort tonight,” Rochester coach Davina Serdahl said. “We had great defense on their guards, who are able to score. A night where we did not shoot particularly well from the field, our pressure defense allowed us to get easy shots that led to high percentage shots.”

Andree-Cordell’s noteworthy performance came off the bench and provided a spark to a Warriors team that led 9-5 at the end of one quarter and 21-18 at the half. 

“Mandy came off the bench again and had a solid game both offensively and defensively,” Serdahl said. “I am really proud of our players as all players contribute in different ways and are unselfish on the court. Another balanced attack. Hopefully we get some injured players returning prior to a final push for playoffs.”

Grace Hoover and Sofie Sand each added eight points for the Warriors, while Roisin Stull knocked in six points.

Rochester continues league play when it hosts Aberdeen on Monday.
