During Friday’s game, Farmington sophomore center Sophie Hart was constantly cutting through the middle of the paint and catching passes from her teammates. But there was one pass in particular that stood out.
In the second half against Shakopee, Hart was running down the floor with sophomore guard Paige Kindseth. Dribbling into the paint, Kindseth delivered a behind-the-back pass that landed right in the hands of Hart. The 6-foot-4 post quickly grabbed the ball and scored a layup with ease while the Tiger fans roared with excitement.
Farmington remained undefeated Friday, winning its 12th consecutive game by defeating South Suburban Conference foe Shakopee 68-46 at Shakopee High School.
Junior guard Molly Mogenson had a double-double to help lead the way for the Tigers, ranked No. 4 in Class 4A by Minnesota Basketball News, as she tallied 10 points and 13 rebounds.
