Three players scored in double-figures, but it wasn’t enough for the Alden-Conger girls’ basketball team Tuesday night against St. Clair.

The Knights lost 65-52.

Abbie Theusch scored 15 points, Kelsey Newman had 11 points and Erika Bute scored 10 points in the loss for the Knights.

The game was tied 31-31 at halftime, but the Knights’ offense cooled down in the second half, and that allowed St. Clair to jump in front and stay ahead.

Alden-Conger will wrap up a two-game road trip in Nicollet on Friday.
