It feels like a rerun. The Faribault Falcons started out the 2AAA tournament by having to face the Mankato West Scarlets for the third time this season. The Falcons won the first two meetings, the last time in overtime. Tuesday night the Falcons got it done in regulation 67-57.

After the first few minutes in the game, the Falcons had the lead and never looked back. They used an 8-0 run to start the second half.

The Falcons had some balanced scoring to complete the job on Tuesday night. Kade Hart had 17, Bidong Tut 14, Joe Jackson 13, Cody Ehlers had 10, TJ Hunt 9 Chase Ernste 2 and Sam Jasinski 2. Hart, Tut and Jackson were our State Farm Insurance players of the game.

The Falcons will face the Marshall Tigers on Saturday night at 6PM at Gustavus. Coverage will start at 5:45PM on Power 96 and power96radio.com.
