County vs County week


Mon, Feb 27th, 2012
Posted in All Sports

It was asked on Chatfield Community Television a few weeks ago, “Who are the Gopher’s biggest rivals?” A number of answers were given. An answer to the rivalry question is, “Any school in a close proximity.” By that standard, the week of Feb 13 was a rivalry week. Many Fillmore County schools did battle against one another. In Rushford on Monday, the Trojan and Burro girls faced off. It was 17-11 R-P at the half, but the home squad, led by Kenzie Lind (23 pts, 13 rebs, 3 assists, 8 stls), put together runs of 14-1 and 10-0 in the second half. They cruised to victory 57-30. Amy Todd added 13 for the R-P’er’s. The same evening, Chatfield and Kingsland went at it. In Spring Valley, the Gopher girl’s got redemption for a 2-OT loss to the Knights in December. It was all about the bench. Reserve senior G Kyndra Neis got all 15 of her points from deep (four in the span of about a minute in the 2nd half). Varsity call-up, reserve freshmen G Kirsten Keefe was perfect (4-4 FG’s, 6-6 FT’s) in getting her 15 points. Add in Karlee Moulton’s four and the Gopher non-starters played Kingsland’s entire team to a 34-34 tie. The entire Gopher team played the Knights 54-34. Cheyenne Losey (11 pts, 14 rebs) paced the Knights, who were just 3-26 from distance. In Chatfield, the boys played the game of the night, due to the shot of the night, or the shot by a Knight, specifically a tip. With the score tied at 53 in the final 0:05, Tanner Lange took a mid-range jumper that wasn’t true, but Devin Pokorney’s helper just beat the buzzer, giving the Knights the dramatic win 55-53. His offensive rebound put-back out-did Josh Bernard’s that tied the game seconds earlier. It also nullified the splendid effort of 6’2” Gopher sophomore C Jayme LaPlante. The powerful youngster keyed Chatfield by making 12 of 17 FG’s and registering a career-high 25 points. He just topped Lange (24 pts) for game-high. Kingsland benefited from turnover (15 to Chat’s 22) and FT (14-17 to Chat’s 1-4) edges.

On Tuesday, it was Fillmore Central and R-P’s turn. In Rushford, Falcon freshman G Morgan Malley was on from deep. She hit 7 of 12 3’s and scored 24 points. Teammate Alex Peterson added 17 and 9 rebounds, but R-P’s balanced team effort won out. Led by Amy Todd’s athletic interior aggression (23 pts, 16 rebs), and Kenzie Lind’s all-around play (11 pts, 8 rebs, 6 stls), the Trojans finished off their regular season (5-13, 9-16 overall) with a 5 .....

Posted in All Sports

If an announcer were to call a basketball game in which Rushford-Peterson Trojan Nick Thompson played, he’d likely use the phrase ‘Nick T…for three!’ It rhymes. It offers clarity (Nick’s younger brother Seth is a teammate so saying ‘Thom .....

Smith tops 1,000

Posted in Sports

What Mabel-Canton senior center Steve Smith does on the court isn't necessarily flashy. There are no three-pointers, pull-up jump shots, or dipsy-do drives to the lane. He isn't the new age big-man, or more likely to gravitate to the perimeter versu .....
