Grantsburg girls take command over Webster

Tiger Brooke Wolf was being guarded very closely by Pirate Renee Tooze.

The Grantsburg Pirates girls’ basketball team played host to the Webster Tigers girls on Friday, Dec. 9 for a West Lakeland Conference basketball contest. 

The Tigers came into the matchup with a 1-2 record on the season and Grantsburg entered with a 2-1 record. Webster played last Tuesday at Shell Lake, falling 49-41, and Grantsburg was coming off a 74-40 win over Frederic at home.  The game started out close, as both teams were tied at 6 points apiece 4 minutes into the game. After that, things started to click for Grantsburg as they went on to take command of the game and headed into the half with a commanding 37-19 lead.
