PHS girls basketball team gets first win in new gymnasium

The Prescott High School Girls Basketball team won its first game in the school's new gymnasium Thursday evening as they downed Ellsworth 58-53.

The Cardinals had a sizeable 41-26 lead at haftime and led 52-39 with six minutes to play when Ellsworth rallied to tie the score at 53-53 with a little over a minute left in the second half. But key free-throws by Allie Murphy and a lay-up by Katelyn Miller broke the tie in the Cardinals' favor.

PHS improves to 4-5 overall and 2-4 in the Middle Border Conference. The Cards' next contest is Tuesday, Jan. 10 vs. St. Croix Central at home.

Read about this game and the Prescott girls' basketball team's week in next week's Prescott Journal. On newsstands and in town next Wednesday.
