Mora Hosts Milaca for Conference Double Header

The double header took place on Friday night in Mora.


The girls teams played first. The Wolves took an early lead in which they never looked back on. The Mustangs offense put up some good shots but could never find them consistently. Milaca cruised into half with a 43-16 lead.

The story stayed the same in the 2nd half, the Wolves offense continued to score and the defense was lights out. The Mustangs were held to seven 2nd half points. Backups played a large chuck of the 2nd half which will prove key in developing the future starters on both teams. The Wolves won handedly 70-23.


Milaca moves to 6-5 on the year and will travel to Pequot Lakes Tuesday night.

Mora will host MLWR on Tuesday night.

The boys began shortly after, and looking at this game based on records alone one would assume the Mustangs would run away with a win. That was far from the case.


Mora did get off to a good start the offense was running on all cylinders. The defense was doing their part in getting the ball back and creating turnovers. As the first half rolled on it seemed like Mora was about to pull away, as they had extended their lead to double digits. But Milaca would not go into half quietly, their offense found a surge and it helped their defense gain some momentum. They closed the gap and trailed at half 31-25.

The second half started in Mora's favor, but that quickly switched as once again Milaca stormed back and were within a couple possessions of the lead. The teams would continue to trade buckets as Mora clung to their lead. But under 5 minutes to go and the damn broke. Milaca went on a scoring run and tied the game and briefly took the lead. Although Mora was quick to strike and regain the lead, it seemed like Milaca had the game right where they wanted it. While the game reached closer to its end, the Mustangs were able to pull ahead and put the game out of reach as Milaca's offense sputtered. Mora went on to win 66-61.


Mora moves to 7-3 with the win and play in Little Falls on Tuesday.

Milaca will wait to find their second win on the year. But a game like this will certainly encourage them going forward. They'll play at St. Cloud Cathedral on Friday.
