Knights 5-0 Week Includes Gopher Sweep


Mon, Dec 14th, 2015
Posted in All Sports

Chatfield’s and Kingsland’s basketball teams have met up twice a year for quite some time now. The boys and girls each do battle the same night (or a night apart). It’s been a few years since the black and silver held total bragging rights. In December of 2011, Cheyenne Losey had a double-double (16 pts, 12 rebs) as Kingsland’s ladies out-scored Chatfield 8-0 in double overtime for the 51-43 win. Tanner Lange had 18 points as the Knight boys won 65-42. Since, the Gophers have posted five sweeps, with the boys going 5-2, the girls 7-0 (all wins by 20 or more points). That series anecdote made December 1 2015, a good night for the Knights.

In Chatfield, the girl’s game started like previous ones; Gophers 8-0. But Chatfield didn’t score for a good five minutes. Kingsland went 11-0 to lead 11-8. Knight 6’0” Gracie Schmidt was a force (8 pts), drawing a litany of Gopher fouls. Kellyn Webster hit a late three to send the visitors to the break, up 26-22. In the second half, the junior Webster hit three more three’s. Kingsland led 46-36 (5:00-plus left). Chatfield then rallied with a 9-0 run. With 1:49 left, trailing 46-45, a Gopher contested post-shot for the lead went begging. Kingsland, courtesy of a couple offensive rebounds, controlled the ball from 1:33 to 0:15. A pair of Courtney Schmidt free throws left the score 48-45. Chatfield’s last gasp, a tough three in the waning seconds, was off. Kingsland grabbed the big 48-45 victory. G-Schmidt (16 pts, 6-11 FG’s, 5 rebs) and Webster (14 pts, 4-6 three’s) led the way with career highs. Kailey Link (8 pts, 8 rebs) and C-Schmidt (7 pts, 4 rebs, 5 assists) helped out. Sydney Gould (14 pts, 6 rebs, 4 assists, 2 stls, 2 blks) and Megan LaPlante (14 pts, 5 rebs) led a foul-laden Gopher squad. Kingsland was better from distance (5 for 11 to 4 for 22). The teams were a combined 12-29 free throws. The win moved the Knights’ record to 2-0. They beat Lanesboro 49-22 a day earlier. Freshman Lauren Buchholtz led the way (14 pts, 6 rebs, 6 stls). Webster (9 pts) and C-Schmidt (8 pts, 5 stls) helped out. Haley Polin (10 pts) keyed the Burro attack.

In Spring Valley, Kingsland’s boy’s game with Chatfield was a battle of attrition. Each team shot sub-33%. But the Knights made 14 of 22 second half freebies to Chatfield’s 6 of 10. Brennen O’Connor was busy (10-12 FT’s all in the second half). He tallied a game-high 17 points to help Kingsland to a 43-38 win. Qu .....
