GSL boys' hoop winless at Tartan tourney

It wasn’t the kindest of holiday seasons for the Glencoe-Silver Lake boys’ basketball team. The Panthers’ losing streak hit four games after GSL went winless in a trio of matchups at the Tartan Holiday Tournament last week.
After dropping the tourney opener by a 69-26 score to Forest Lake on Monday, Dec. 28, the Panthers lost 72-29 to Spring Lake Park and 80-69 to Centennial on Dec. 29-30.
“Spring Lake Park (SLP) is big and strong – it’s basically their football team,” coach Robb DeCorsey said. “We were just throwing shots up, running back into our zone with our tail between our legs and then not defending.”
GSL allowed SLP 12 three-point baskets in the game, while only recording 12 field goals in general itself. Guards Mason Ahlbrecht and Tyler Ehrke led the Panthers with a scant six points apiece. Forward Jacob Popelka missed the game due to an urgent family matter.
“If it wasn’t for Mason battling and basically putting up a one-man press that he scored a few baskets off of, we don’t even score 29 points,” DeCorsey said.
