Nick Gehlen was back in the line-up for No. 9 ranked PHS and his 18 points combined with Mike Harris's 20 helped the Cardinal eventually pull away from the Chieftains late in the second half.
Prescott has now won 28 straight MBC contests and is 11-0 in the league, three games ahead of Osceola and four in front of St. Croix Central which lost to New Richmond last night. The Cardinal improves to 16-3 overall and is off until next Tuesday when they are at Somerset.
Meanwhile, the Prescott girls basketball team dropped its seventh straight contest, a close 56-44 game at River Falls Tuesday night. Heather Furlong had 17 points for the Cardinals and Kate Miller finished with 10 points but PHS couldn't stop RF's Karly Murphy as the UW-Green Bay bound senior pumped in 38 points to lift the Wildcats.
PHS drops to 5-14 overall and host Menomonie Thursday evening at 7:30 p.m.
