Austin Packers girls basketball team wins at Northfield 55-49 Saturday evening

The Austin Packers girls basketball team traveled to Northfield to take on the Raiders for the second of back-to-back Big 9 Conference road games Saturday evening, and it was the Packers bouncing back from a 63-54 loss at Rochester John Marshall Friday evening to down the Raiders 55-49.

The Packers held a slim 28-26 lead at the half, and junior guard Ajiem Agwa, who put up 32 points versus John Marshall Friday night led the Packers in scoring Saturday evening with 15 points.  Guard Marissa Shute was also in double figures with 12 points, Quinn Osgood added 10 points, Mackenzie Brede and Gracie Arndt both scored five points apiece, and Atee Obang and Addison Walsh both totaled four points apiece in the win.

Austin is now 7-10 overall on the season with the win, and 6-8 in the Big 9 Conference, and the Packers are back into action Tuesday night at Ove Berven Gym versus Albert Lea, with the conference matchup scheduled to tip off at 7:30 p.m. that evening.
