After beating Spooner with relative ease, the Ellsworth girls basketball team faced a tougher test in fourth-seeded Northwestern. The fifth-seeded Panthers pulled out the 65-57 win Friday night.

Molly Janke led the Panther offense with 38 points, 12 rebounds, three assists and three steals. Janke found her groove from long range, knocking down seven shots from beyond the arc.

Ellsworth advances to the third round of Division 3 sectional play to face No. 1 St. Croix Central on Saturday. SCC is coming off a 63-31 win over No. 8 Osceola.
