Seven losses in eight games (1-7). It was a futility Chatfield girls basketball was absolutely not accustomed to. Their previous seven losses came with 50 wins attached. A lot of (college) talent has departed in the past few years. This year’s squad can’t live up to the previous two. They nonetheless whipped things around like an Australia boomerang with a 4-0 week. Senior Megan LaPlante lifted Chatfield past Pine Island. The 5’5” guard hit seven of her first eight three-pointers. She hit eight total, scoring a career-high 30 points. Her previous high was 20. The Gophers prevailed 55-49. Sydney Gould (12 pts, 6-6 FT’s, 5 assists) and Mariah Bell (8 pts, 5 rebs) helped out. Gould hit key freebies down the stretch. As a team, Chatfield was 10-18 from deep, 11-13 from the free throw line. Brian Baum’s girls then got an easy game versus Lewiston-Altura. Gould had a season-high 21 points (8-12 FG, 4-7 threes) in the 73-52 win. They got a season high 29 bench points. Four players registered season highs. Two more tied personal bests. The Gophers then got a crazy to-the-wire win over Rushford-Peterson (see ‘Trojans and Gophers Split’). After toughing out that win, they did the same at North Branch, 45-43. Chatfield led by eight late. NB crept back in it, but missed a game-tying shot at the horn. LaPlante (13 pts, 3-7 three’s, 5 rebs, 4 assists), Brooke Adler (10 pts, 10 rebs), and Gould (9 pts, 6 rebs, 5 assists) led the charge. And just like that, courtesy of a 5-game winning streak, the Gophers are 6-7 overall (3-5 in the TRC).

Trojans Sweep Knights, Larson Hits 1,000

R-P and Kingsland played their seasonal basketball series. The Knights girls (6-4) played at the Trojans (6-3) in a battle of 1A East contenders with a combined nine junior starters. Each came in riding three-game winning streaks. In a defensive battle, it took 5-plus minutes for the first points. Each team had just 21 first half possessions. At half, R-P led 13-7. In the second half, Kingsland pulled to within two (13-11). The Trojans then went to Brianna Koop. The 5’8” junior put up 17 second half points. R-P slowly grew their lead. They hit eight of their final 12 free throws for a hard-fought 38-26 victory. Each team held the other to a season low in points. Koop led the victors (21 pts, 6-11 FG’s, 8-12 FTs, 8 rebs, 3 stls). Mikayla Crawford (8 pts, 4 assists, 6 stls) and Ashley Agrimson (7 pts, 7 rebs) helped out. Kailey Link (9 pts .....
