Carlie Wagner scores 48; NRHEG reaches title game

MINNEAPOLIS — Heralded Minneapolis Washburn freshman Coley Chase had a good game on Friday, scoring 16 points and pulling down 19 rebounds. But Carlie Wagner of New Richland-Hartland-Ellendale-Geneva was even better.

Wagner went off for 48 points and grabbed 13 rebounds to lead her team to a 69-60 win in the Class AA state girls basketball semifinals at Target Center.

Washburn trailed just 57-55 with three minutes to play in the game but could get no closer. Wagner hit a pair of mid-range jumpers and a free throw to put her team up by seven and Washburn never got back in it.

Wagner and Hannah Lundberg combined for seven free throws down the stretch to keep Washburn at bay. Lundberg finished with 11 rebounds and scored five points.

Minneapolis Washburn’s Natalie Holdahl scored 17 points and Megan Lucas added 14. Lucas and Lucia Renikoff pulled down seven rebounds apiece.

Both teams scored a mess of points from the free-throw line. Washburn was 27 of 35 from the stripe while the Panthers were 24 of 38.

The loss drops Washburn to 23-8. NRHEG improves to 31-1.

In Friday’s other Class AA semifinal game, Braham knocked off Providence Academy 49-39.

Minneapolis Washburn plays Providence Academy in today’s third-place game at Noon. NRHEG meets Braham for the state title at 2 p.m. today at Target Center
