"They did a good job with our press in the first half," Storm Lake coach Tim Keigan said. "They beat us back quite a bit. We just didn't get a lot of shots to fall the whole game. We had a lot of easy looks and missed a lot of layups. They had three to four seniors on the floor the whole time and we just don't have the experience yet. It was their fifth game and our second, and that definitely showed."
Storm Lake, now 0-2, plays Friday night at LeMars.
