Knights girls basketball team improves to 16 -2 with win over sub-section rival Osakis Saturday afternoon

I just got off the phone with West Central Area Knights sports reporter Kris Beuckens, who attended today's Osakis vs. WCA girls basketball game in Barrett. He reported that the Knights were victorious after blowing out the Silverstreaks in the second half.

Osakis fell to 14-6 overall, and they are in a battle with Staples-Motley (13-5) for the #4-playoff seed and accompanying first-round home game in Sub-Section 6AA-West. They meet on February 19th in a game that most likely will determine who the #4 seed will be.

The Knights, meanwhile, are 16-2 overall, easily their best record in 18 games since 2001-2002 when they won the HOL Conference with a 13-1 record. The 2001-2002 team is tied with the inaugural WCA Knights team of 199-1994 for the most school wins since the pairing of the West Central Wildcats and the Hoffman-Kensington Patriots.

Currently, the Knights sit in 3rd place in the sub-section standings. Feel free to check out the following website, operated by Coach Anderson of the Knights girls basketball team: Knights girls basketball website. Fans can note sub-section standings, exact point totals for the eight teams, as well as a full schedule of this season's games as well as varsity, B-squad, and C-squad rosters.
