MAYVILLE - Abby Magnuson scored 18 points and Kaitlin Ensign chipped in nine to lead Hillsboro-Central Valley to a 42-35 win over MayPort-CG on Monday.

The Burros opened the game hitting four of their first five 3-pointers and survived a late scare from the Patriots to pull out the seven-point win.

The victory allowed H-CV to climb to sixth in the Region 2 standings and set the stage for both clubs to host region play-in games at 7 tonight (Friday) on their home courts.

Hillsboro-Central Valley will face No. 11 seed Hatton-Northwood while the Patriots (No. 8) will welcome Drayton/Valley-Edinburg (No. 9) in Mayville.

H-CV head coach Tony Guttormson praised his team’s defensive effort and its early shooting against the Patriots in their matchup Monday.

“We were solid defensively except for a couple stretches in the second quarter,” Guttormson said. “Any time you can hold a team to around 35 you should probably win.”
