FIELD TWP— The Grizzlies held off a late rally by Wrenshall to notch their fifth win of the season on Monday, 66-60.

The Grizzlies used a strong first half to cinch the win despite being outscored by the Wrens 32-26 in the second half. The Grizzlies steadily built their early lead and took a 40-26 margin into the break.

Junior guard Bria Chiabotti led scoring for the Grizzlies, who had three players in double figures. Chiabotti hit seven from the field, including a three-pointer, and hit four-of-five from the foul line, good for 19 points. Sophomore center Sasha Strong notched 13 points, including a trey, while Regan Ratai tallied ten points.

Brynn Simpson added eight, Hanna Sandberg tallied five, and Kennedy Wardas added four.

In action last Thursday, the Grizzlies downed Fond du Lac 70-54. Bria Chiabotti had another big night, pouring in 18 points, including two from outside the arc and six more from the key.

While the Grizzlies led the whole way, Fond du Lac kept the game within reach, thanks to a big night from Kayla Reynolds, who scored a game-high 23 points. The Grizzlies led by nine at the half, and slowly padded to their margin late in the game. Kate Stone added 13 points, while Hanna Sandberg added 12. Brynn Simpson added seven and Regan Ratai added four.

With two wins on the week, the Grizzlies improved to 5-1 as they head into the holiday break. They’ll be next back in action at the Esko Coaches Classic, set for Dec. 28-30.
