The Morris Area/Chokio-Alberta girls' basketball team struggled at Sauk Centre Tuesday, dropping a 67-33 non-conference contest to the West Central North leaders.

"This was a tough game," said coach Dale Henrich. "We started out strong, got into foul trouble, and the Streeters took advantage.

"This was the return date for their DI player, she played in small spurts and scored 15."

Iowa signed Kali Peschel a year ago and she recently had reconstructive knee surgery.

"We really struggled with Sauk's defense and we didn't get many open looks," Henrich added. "Sauk drove at us with authority and threw in nine threes."

Beth Holland was the only Tiger in double figures, scoring 10 points.
