Score at the half with Red Lake leading.

THIEF RIVER FALLS - The Warriors were looking for their first win of the season on Tuesday, December 5, 2017, having lost to Blackduck and Fosston about a week ago, as they battled it out with Fertile-Beltrami in the first round of the NCTC Tournament.

It was close pretty much all the way in the second half, with the Warriors leading 66-60 with about 4 minutes to go. But the Falcons went on a run to overtake the lead, then held on for the win 73-69.

Kendall Whitefeather led the Warriors with 21 points, five of which were 3-pointers, Justin Barrett had 14, Andre Harrison added 11 and David Smith 10.

Red Lake was 8-16 from the freethrow line, along with 19 turnovers on the night.

The Warriors are now 0-3 on the season and will face Red Lake County on Wednesday, December 6th in the consolation bracket.
