After two dominating victories over Maple Lake and Breck, Litchfield found themselves up 24-15 at halftime against Eden-Valley Watkins.

But EVW more than doubled their score at halftime to steal one away from the Dragons 49-45.

The big factor in the game was the Eagles were able to hit their free throws and the Dragons were not. Although the Dragons only had four attempts, they didn't hit a single one compared to the Eagles 19 attempts and making 11.

Tyson Michels was the leading scoring for Litchfield with 16 points. Michels also added seven rebounds, four assists and three steals for a solid all-around game. Ben Nelson also had an efficient night, making four of his seven shots and grabbing six boards.

The Dragons will close out their three game road trip Thursday against Paynesville at 7 p.m.
