Friday night's win pulled Saint Peter into a tie with Fairmont for the conference lead at 3-0, but the Cardinals could jump back ahead with a win on the road against rival Blue Earth Area to get to 4-0, as the Buccaneers hosted a double header tonight of girls and boys basketball in Blue Earth. The Cardinal boys were in a close one with the Bucs, up just three at halftime. Fairmont opened it up after halftime behind 17 second half points from Mitch Pfingsten. That gave him a game high 21, as the Cardinals go on to win 62-48.
The girls game went earlier and it too was close at half time with Fairmont clinging to a four point lead. The 2nd half saw the Cardinals outscore the Buccaneers by seven with Alexis Christianson leading the way with 19 points as Fairmont goes on to win 47-35.
