Start to finish, Burros down Cougars

Fri, Dec 9th, 2011
Posted in Sports

The Lanesboro and Mabel-Canton girls' b-ball squads came into their SEC opener exactly alike in one area. Each had a new coach. M-C headman Doug Carlson has experience, having led FC a few years back. Lanesboro headman Ryan Scheevel has exactly three games under his varsity (b-ball) coaching belt. The fourth time was evidently the charm. The Burros began 6-0 and 13-2 en route to a 27-10 halftime lead. The Cougar offense was better in the second half. Following three-pointers by Lydia Geving and Danielle Paul, the lead was cut to nine (36-27) at the 8:10 mark. Lanesboro closed the game out though, as Bryn Harmon had 8 of her game-high 15 in the final six minutes. The 53-33 victory is win number one of the season for the orange and black. Paige Hungerholt and Johanna Bearson side-kicked Harmon with 9 apiece. M-C was paced by Christy Welscher's 10-point, 13-rebound effort. Lydia Geving did a bit of everything with 10 points, 7 rebounds, and 8 steals. It was the Coug's season-opener.

Bench Helps Knights

Past Trojans...

Both Kingsland and Rushford-Peterson took the court in their opening Three Rivers conference match-up with nine girls active. By the end of the game, each was down to seven. Kingsland, utilizing a more productive bench, was better able to withstand their two fouls outs. They were also better at full strength too, never trailing in the first half, taking a 29-21 lead into the mid-point locker room. Trojan Amy Todd had something to say early in the second stanza. The 5'9" junior scored three baskets in three straight trips, capping a 10-2 R-P run that brought the score even at 31. The Knights withstood the storm though, as point guard McKayla Pruter's defense led to a couple buckets. When Todd fouled out with 7:16 to go, Kingsland again was in command (46-39). With a second starter, Kendra Crawford, out with an injury, the home Trojans just couldn't hang. Kingsland slightly expanded their lead in the waning minutes, ultimately prevailing 59-49. Kenzie Lind stuffed R-P's stats column, leading them in points (15), rebounds (14), assists (6), and steals (4). Amy Todd finished with 10. The Knights got great balance. Starters Lindsay Tart (12 pts, 3 stls), MacKenzie Marzolf (11 pts, 8 rebs), and Pruter (9 pts, 7 ass, and 4 stls) all did effective work, but so did bench players Nicole Swanson (9 pts, 5 rebs), Jessi Kaster (6 pts), and Breanna Musel (6 pts). The Knight bench outscored R-P's 21 to 7. Kingsland was also better at the charity stripe, converting 13 of 18 attempts (72%) versus R-P's 17 of 31 (55%). R-P is 0-2 overall.

...Swanson's Effort Leads to 'W' Versus Tigers

A night later, 6'2" Nicole Swanson was in the lady Knight starting lineup, and the limelight, at home versus Lake City. Swanson was very efficient, converting 6 of 9 two-point attempts and 5 of 6 free throws for a team-high 17 points. Lindsay Tart and MacKenzie Marzolf each added 10. Cheyenne Losey had 8 points and a team high 7 rebounds. The Knights built a 33-24 halftime lead, then utilized a full court pressure defense (12 second half forced TO's) to extend that lead sizably, ultimately prevailing 64-43. Kingsland again took full advantage of the free throw line, converting on 24 of 35 attempts (to Lake City's 8 of 15). The win is the Knights third in four tries with their only loss coming in overtime in a season-opening tournament contest. Tiger Ashley Gates led everyone with 16 points.
