The Boys would host Milaca.
These two teams also got out to a fast start. Neither team had an edge over the other, and neither could seemingly build on a lead. Eventually Milaca found a little bit of a rhythm and built a 10 point cushion over Hinckley-Finlayson 36-26 going into halftime. Coming out of half the Jaguars knew they had work to do but the game never felt out of hand for them. The Wolves continued to build off the success they had in the 1st half. But when Milaca started to pull away, the Jags fought back and erased the double digit deficit. Although Hinckley-Finlayson was never able to overcome the Milaca lead, they fought hard and made things difficult for the Wolves. Milaca came out on top 69-55. The Jaguars fall to 4-7 on the season and will play East Central on the road on Friday.
