SPIRIT LAKE — MOC-Floyd Valley wasn’t about to lay down against Class 3A No. 4 Spirit Lake as the two teams began postseason play on Wednesday.

Although Spirit Lake led 17-15 after one quarter, the Dutch took a 28-27 lead at halftime.

The indians finally earned some breathing room in the third quarter, stretching their lead to 42-34 and holiding on for a 54-44 win.

Amber Kischbaum lit up the scoreboard with a team-high 25 points while the Dutch held Kaisha Brown to a season-low six points.

However, sister Mary Brown stepped up with a couple of 3-pointers and ended with 10 points and Sam Spies also had six points for the Indians.

The victory earns the Indians a third game with Lakes Conference rival Spencer on Saturday at Spencer.

The Tigers were a 59-32 winner over Storm Lake on Wednesday.

Spirit Lake swept the season series with Spencer, which was rated in the top 10 most of the season and ended the regular season at No. 13.
