Griggs-Midkota gets past Carrington

After getting their first win of the season in the seventh-place game of the Stutsman County Tournament, the Griggs-Midkota Titans boys basketball team continued their winning ways with a 50-37 win over the Carrington Cardinals on Tuesday, Jan. 11. The Titans (2-6) outscored the Cardinals (4-4) 19-7 in the second quarter.

The win is the Titans first against the Cardinals since Griggs-Midkota became a co-op ahead of the 20-21 season. The last time either school beat the Cardinals was on Jan. 9, 2020 when Midkota won 39-33.

The Cardinals fought back in the fourth quarter outscoring the Titans 11-6, but 44-26 deficit entering the final quarter was too much to overcome. Both teams struggled in foul trouble in the second half with the Cardinals having 10 team fouls and the Titans having nine. In the second half the Cards shot 5-of-8 from the line, while the Titans shot 2-of-5.

The Cardinals were led by Hudson Schmitz with 13 points and Hudson Topp with 12 points. The Titans' Logan Topp finished with 16 and Jaxon Gronneberg scored 14 points.


The 3-pointer was flying for the Titans as they hit nine with three coming from Logan Topp. The Cardinals hit four 3-pointers with three of them coming from Hudson Topp.

The Cardinals attempt to end their three-game losing streak at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 13, when they host Central Cass. The Titans return to the court at 6 p.m. Friday, Jan. 14, when they go to Ellendale.
