SOMERSET - Prescott's road woes continue in Middle Border Conference play as they fell at Somerset Friday 68-59.
The Spartans grabbed a 15-8 lead in the first half and held onto it throughout the rest of the contest. The Cardinals threatened to overtake Somerset several times but clutch shooting saved Spartans, especially three-point shooting. Somerset made six three pointers to PHS's three.
"They broke us down defensively many times and the end result was we gave up 68 points," Prescott head coach Nick Johnson said. "That's not going to get the job done, especially on the road where you have to win to win the conference title."
The loss put Prescott two games back of first place at 6-4, tied with Ellsworth for fourth place as the Panthers won both their league games this past week while the Cardinals split. Somerset moves into a second place tie with Baldwin-Woodville, who was routed 60-40 Friday in a first place showdown with New Richmond.
Billy Brookshaw had 15 points to lead PHS in scoring while Somerset's Tyler Ledbetter led all scorers with 17 points.
