In the last week the Fillmore Central boys basketball team lost to St. Charles 77-35, beat Southland, 49-28, and had its game with Lanesboro re-scheduled to Feb. 12. 

The team currently stands at 4-11 for the season, 3-6 in Three Rivers Conference play.  The guys are now 2-4 against teams in the West Division. 

The Falcons were expected to finish up their regular season games with West Division teams this past Tuesday when they were scheduled to host Kingsland.  Friday, the team will host state-ranked Caledonia.  Monday, Jan. 29, the Falcons will travel to LeRoy-Ostrander and Tuesday, Jan. 30, the team will travel to Rushford-Peterson.

FC had two players in double-figures in the win over the Rebels: Nate Haugerud (11) and Josh Peters (14).  Haugerud added team-highs in rebounds (9), assists (5) and steals (7).  Peters also contributed four rebounds and four steals.  Brock Walsh and Luke Ristau had six points each in the game, Logan Corson scored five and Colten Kraling had a three-point basket and a free throw for four points.  Logan Dyreson had a bucket for two points and Connor Dols had a free throw to round out the Falcon scoring.

Corson also pulled down three rebounds, dished out two assists and had three steals while directing traffic from his point-guard position.  Also coming up with floor game stats; Tyler Raaen (one rebound), Dols (one rebound, one steal), Kraling (four rebounds, one assist, one block), Hadrian Williams (one rebound), Matt Lutes (three rebounds, two steals), Walsh (five rebounds, two steals), Cory Brown (one rebound), Ian Shupe (one rebound), and Ristau (four rebounds).

As a team, Fillmore Central shot 17 for 54 (31.5 percent) from the field, five for 20 (25.0 percent) from three-point range, and 10 for 16 (62.5 percent) from the line.  Floor stats included 37 rebounds, 19 steals, eight assists and 15 turnovers.

In the loss to state-ranked St. Charles, coach Aaron Mensink said, “ugly game.  They hit 13 threes in the first half, didn’t matter if we played zone or man-to-man.  No St. Charles starters played in the second half.”  Bet the Saints wish they could have had some of those shots against Lake City this past Saturday? 

Corson led the team with 10 points.  He also had four rebounds, two assists and three steals.  Ristau had eight points (4/10 field goals) and two rebounds, Dols had five points (2/3 field goals) and three rebounds.  Others getting into the action were Haugerud (two points, 2/2 free throws,  three assists and a team-high eight rebounds), Williams (one point, two rebounds), Lutes (three points, one rebound, three assists, one steal), Walsh (two rebounds), Shupe (four points, 2/2 field goals, one rebound),

The Falcons shot 25.0 percent (13/52) from the field, 15.4 percent (4/26) from downtown and 45.5 percent (5/11) at the charity stripe.  The team had 23 turnovers against the Saints.
