Fremont 69 Montague 58
The Packers shook off their first loss of the season and rebounded with a home court win over a tough Montague squad.
The visitors inched into an early lead before the Packers fired off a 13-0 run to take the lead they would hold the rest of the night.
Trailing by 15 at the break the Wildcats clawed their way back into the game in the 3rd pulling to within a half dozen points before the Packers pushed it back to 9 by quarter’s end and kept the Cats at bay in the final frame.
