New York Mills improved to 17-1 overall and 9-0 in the Park Region Conference with a pair of lopsided games last week.
The Eagles opened the week with an 88-60 game against Pillager, before traveling to Rothsay on Saturday for a 73-47 win over the Tigers.
This week the Eagles have a pair of PRC games. On Tuesday the fifth ranked Eagles will host the sixth ranked Henning Hornets in a match up between the top two teams in the conference and in the sub section standings. The last time the two teams played the Eagles defeated Henning by a score of 58-56 in overtime. The Hornets come into the game with a record of 16-1 overall.
On Friday, NY Mills will travel to Bertha-Hewitt in another conference match up. The Bears come into the game with a record of 3-15 overall.
Following Friday’s road game, five of NY Mills’ final six games of the season will be at home. NY Mills will wrap up their regular season on Tuesday, March 1 in a non-conference game against Browerville.
NY Mills hit the road on Thursday and came away with an 88-60 win over Pillager.
