Basketball: Thunder girls fall to Fernstrom, Chisago Lakes 62-48

The Zimmerman Thunder expected trouble from a renowned Chisago Lakes  center and they got it.

“She’s big, and she’s physical because she’s big, but she can shoot, too,” said Zimmerman coach Lance Dalbey after Bryanna Fernstrom scored 24 points and led the Wildcats to a 62-48 win over the Thunder in Lindstrom on Friday evening.

On three occasions, the 6-foot-5 senior pulled up on fast breaks, for a 3-point shot, a shot just inside the arc, and a runner.

“She made all of them, too,” said Dalbey.

The Thunder coach added that Chisago Lakes (14-6) also had a 6-foot wing who was impressive.

Lexi Funaro sank 12 points for the Thunder (14-8) with Kaitlyn Mason adding 10 and Brooke Borchardt nine.

Zimmerman will host Becker on Tuesday.
