Humphrey St. Francis took down Lutheran High Northeast 56-37 in a strong road performance Saturday evening.

The Flyers were led by sophomore Isabel Preister, who finished with 16 points, and 9 rebounds. All 16 of Preister’s points came from inside the paint.

The Flyers also got a significant boost from senior sisters Emma and Hannah Baumgart. The pair combined for 15 points and 17 rebounds.

St. Francis jumped out to an early lead in the first quarter and never looked back, leading 19-6 into the first break.

Head coach Bryan Reichmuth said after the game that he was really proud of how his team controlled the tempo out of the gate.

“We came out shooting really well,” he said. “That was really important for how this game turned out.”

The Flyers finished with a 30-20 advantage on the board, and the extra possessions proved too much for the Eagles to fight back from.

With the win, the Flyers improve to 15-4 and have won five straight games. Next, the Flyers travel to Central Valley on Tuesday, Jan. 31.

Lutheran High Northeast drops to 4-14 on the season and will look to bounce back at home on Monday Jan. 30, against Riverside.
