Kylee Heurung's 22 points and 14 rebounds lifted the Brainerd Warriors over the Little Falls Flyers 65-49 Thursday at Brainerd High School.

Cara Helgeson added 10 points, seven rebounds and two steals. Ashley Huber added five points and five assists.

"It was a great effort by the girls tonight," Warriors head coach Troy Nelson. "We started off not shooting real well, but kept playing hard and fought through it. We made a lot of really fun to watch passes, played together and matched their physicality on the defensive end.

"The girls continued to improve and learn throughout the game. It was a good response after our game Tuesday and a great team win."

Jordan Schuett led the Flyers with 12 points to go with six boards and three assists. Rachel Boros grabbed 11 rebounds as the Flyers outboarded the Warriors 40-38.
