Last season, Zimmerman’s state tournament bid was foiled by Duluth Denfeld in the section semifinals. But Denfeld graduated heavily and hasn’t won a game this year.
Zimmerman handed Denfeld a 60-47 loss at home on Friday evening, dropping the Hunters to 0-12. Meanwhile it was the fourth straight win for the Thunder, all at home, and pushed them above .500 at 7-6. No data was available at this posting.
The Thunder will play at No. 4 ranked St. Cloud Cathedral on Tuesday.
