Southland girls topple Rushford-Peterson 67-37

ADAMS — The Southland girls basketball team beat Rushford-Peterson (7-16 overall, 5-13 Three Rivers) 67-37 in Adams Friday.

The No. 10 ranked Rebels have won their past three games by at least 29 points, but things will get tougher next week as Southland (20-2 overall, 13-2 Three Rivers) will take on Caledonia and Plainview-Elgin-Millville.

“It’ll be really big for us to get refocused against some better competition,” Southland head coach Bob Sheehan said.
