County-County week


Fri, Feb 7th, 2014
Posted in All Sports

Every year there is a week where the squads in Fillmore County play a lot of games against each other. The week starting Monday the 27th was it. Seven basketball games featured county teams versus each other, and a pair of wrestling matches. One thing to come from all of it; ‘Gophers’ equal ‘W’.

Gophers Sweep Falcons…

Chatfield’s b-ball teams convincingly beat FC’s the first go-around (girls 56-25, boys 82-62). In the second meetings, the Falcons squads were tougher outs. A week after their first game, the Gopher fellas, led by Nate Skare (16 pts, four first half trifectas), were headed toward another win, up 30-22 at halftime. But the Falcons began the second with a 15-2 run, taking a 37-32 lead. Trailing 39-34, Chatfield’s answer; hit eight straight FG’s, score on nine of 10 possessions, go on a 21-8 run, go up 55-47. They prevailed 66-52. Skare (6-13 three’s, 27 pts, 10 rebs 6 assists) was brilliant. Jayme LaPlante (16 pts, 14 rebs) also had a double-double. Jake Neis (4 pts, 5 rebs, 8 assists, 6 stls) did everything but score big. For FC, Nick Powell struggled with his shot (4-14 FG’s), but was solid all-around (11 pts, 10 rebs, 5 assists, 3 stls). Junior Nick Mensink (11 pts) was a spark off the bench. Quentin Case added 10 points and 5 steals. Three-point shooting was a key in the game (C 8-21, FC 4-17).

In Chatfield, FC’s girls battled the undefeated #3 Gophers. Chatfield jumped out 20-6. FC closed to 24-20. The Goph’s led 28-20 at halftime. In the second half, Chat again got ahead, 40-26. FC reeled them back in with a 14-5 run. With around six-minutes to play, the Gophers lead was five (45-40). Then Chat coach Brian Baum performed another hockeyesque ‘line change’. Whatever mass substitution it was, was the optimal number for optimal results; the Goph’s scored on nine of ten possessions, 16 unanswered points, they finished the game on a 20-5 run, to prevail 66-45. Maddie Talamantes led the charge (17 pts, 7-11 FG’s). Brook Irish had 11 off the bench. Kirsten Keefe filled the roll of multi-faceted contributor (5 pts, 7 rebs, 5 assists, 7 stls). FC was led by Kendyl Bennett (14 pts, 6-7 FT’s, 6 rebs, 4 stls) and Sammi Bakke (11 pts, 7 rebs). Turnovers told the story (FC 32, C 13).

...and Knights….

The Gophers then moved on to sweeping Kingsland. The girls did so without much fuss, jumping out 13-2.
