Sabres pick up two wins to end regular season


The Sartell Sabres battled the St. Cloud Tech Tigers on Monday, February 24 at 7 pm. The Sabres came into the game with a record of 14-9 sitting at 4th in the section while the Tech Tigers came in with a 3-20 record sitting at 8th in the section.  The game was held at Sartell High School.

The Sabres played a great offensive game led by great ball movement and great teamwork; the Sabres had four players in double-figure points.  The Sabres were led in scoring by Gus Gunderson with 22 points, Mason Lund with 16 points, Matt Sieben with 12 points, and Jacob Bejelland with 12 points. 

Sartell played a very two-sided game Friday night against the Rocori Spartans on February 28th. The Sabres had a different feel for the game because it was also senior night. The Sabres congratulated the seniors for all of their hard work and leadership through their high school basketball careers.

As far as the game went, the team came out flat and found themselves down 1-11 to start the game. After that, they kind of found their rhythm but that didn’t stop the Spartans from hitting big shots. The Sabres were down by 13 at the half.  They found themselves down by 17 at one point in the second half, and then they chipped back and kept fighting and finally came out on top of a gritty Rocori Spartans basketball team. The Sabres were lead by Gus Gunderson who scored 22 points. The final score was 59-52, Sartell won.

The Sabres will host the Sauk Rapids Storm Tuesday for a chance to keep fighting or a chance to be sent home. The game starts at 8 pm at Sartell High School.
