GOOSE LAKE – The Northeast girls started their week with a dominant victory over Anamosa at home, taking down the Blue Raiders 53-23.

Right after that, Brynnlin Kroymann pushed her way through traffic for a bucket.
Leah Mangelsen forced her way up from the right block, making the shot and getting the foul for the three-point play. That gave the Rebels the 21-7 lead and forced the Raiders to a timeout.
