It was closer than the previous time the two teams met, which featured a 51-5 Alexandria lead at halftime, but the end result still ended the same — a loss.

The Little Falls girls basketball season came to an end with a 62-33 loss at No. 1 Alexandria in the Section 8AAA quarterfinals, Tuesday.

Despite a better showing than the previous matchup against the Cardinals, Little Falls was unable to score or stop Alexandria on a consistent basis, and trailed 43-18 at halftime.

In the second half, the Flyers contended to keep the score at a similar deficit.

Junior Sophia Sowada was the leader for the Flyers. She finished with team-bests in scoring (12 points), blocks (six) and rebounds (five).

Fellow junior Rachel Tembreull added six points.

Little Falls closed out the regular season, Feb. 23, with a 68-25 loss at Albany.

Albany led by as much as 44 in the contest, and were already up 41-16 by halftime.

Senior Terra Motschke had a team-high seven rebounds in the loss. Eighth grader Taylor Jordan nabbed three steals.

Little Falls finished the season at 2-25 overall.

The Flyers graduate four seniors: Motschke, Melissa Geisenhof, Destiny Young and Kacy Steinmetz.
