Lady Knight 3-point barrage not enough - 1/23/12


Fri, Jan 20th, 2012
Posted in Sports

The Dover-Eyota girl's basketball squad has an M-O. They push the basketball. Led by speedy standout junior PG Sarah Pease, D-E gets up and down the court in the blink of an eye. With great depth, they also come in and out in droves. That formula had the Eagles sitting 8-1 in the 3-Rivers, tied for 1st place (10-3 overall) upon visiting 4-3, 8-5 Kingsland. The 1st half was highlighted by 15 Knight TO's and a 21-6 D-E spurt. Kingsland scored the last four, but still went to the break down 32-23. Four more points to begin the 2nd half trimmed the lead to 32-27. But a 13-2 run seemingly put D-E in command 47-31 (10+ minutes left). At that point, Kingsland went nutty from deep. They nailed seven trifectas in a 7+ minute span (on nine attempts). The last by Lindsay Tart erased the remainder of D-E's lead, capped a 13-0 run, and put the Knights ahead 62-60 at the 3-minute mark (their first lead since 13-11). Enter Ms. Pease. With the scored tied at 62, she pulled up and drilled a gutsy top of the key three with 1:41 to go. Moments later, she nailed a pair of FT's to expand D-E's lead to 67-62 with 40 ticks left. Another Tart triple with 21 seconds cut the lead to two. When Pease missed the back-end of a 1-and-1, Kingsland had a chance for the tie. But in the final 13 seconds, all they got off was a two-point attempt. The Eagles prevailed 68-65, withstanding the frenetic Knight comeback. Pease led all scorers with 20. NiKayla Ratz chipped in 13 for the Eagles who had ten girls score. For Kingsland, Cheyenne Losey had 13 and 11 (3rd 2B-2B of season). MaKayla Pruter had season highs in points (13) and assists (9) dueling Pease at the point. Tart had 12 all from deep and all in the last 7+ minutes. Both teams shot well from range; Kingsland 10-19, D-E 6-11.

R-P a rollin'

The R-P boys started the season 1-2. Exactly a month later, the Trojans are in the enviable position of still being stuck on two losses. Houston (9-2 overall) felt the wrath. They became the 9th straight victim. Trent Vix continued his after New Year's onslaught (34 versus Southland, 25 versus FC). The crafty guard scored 23 points in the 1st half, going 6-8 from downtown (he finished with 25 & 7 dimes). The Trojans were an offensive juggernaut in the first session, scoring a season best 52 points, building a 23-point lead. They deflated the 'Canes. Nick Thompson had 16 points, 9 rebounds, and 5 assists. Nate Kingsley scored 15. Jorli Hauge was Mr. Glue Guy (7 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists). Forcing more than twice as many turnovers as they committed (25 to 12), and capitalizing on that ratio (R-P was 31-65 from the field, Houston 23-44), Tom Vix's club suppressed the Hurricane's in 'The Shelter' 89-63. Four nights later, R-P defeated a rebuilding Caledonia Warriors squad 60-51. It moved their win-streak to 10. Thompson had 20, Vix 18, and Hauge 13. Their record is 11-2 (8-2 in league), 3rd behind PEM (9-0, 11-3) and Kingsland (8-1, 8-3). Behind Thompson's 23/game and Vix's 16.6/game the Trojans are rolling. The January 12th state poll has them checking in at #6 in Class A.

A year makes a huge difference

Last February 10, the Mabel-Canton girls traveled to Rushford. They lost 82-24. And though the Cougs were more competitive in the 2011 play-offs versus R-P, it was still lopsided (56-30). A few pieces have changed on the two teams. But if anything, M-C lost more key players from those games than R-P. Nonetheless, January 9, 2012's match-up most certainly didn't follow 2011's footprint. At halftime, it was Coug's 24, Trojans 23. The game was close throughout (never more than a five-point difference). M-C junior Danielle Paul (not on 2010-2011's squad) was the offensive standout. She nailed six 3-pointers and scored a career-high 20 points. In the final minute-and-change, R-P forced a turnover. Amy Todd's basket expanded their lead to 53-50. M-C's Lydia Geving was then fouled. She made both freebies (53-52 R-P). M-C got the ball back via turnover in the final seconds, but a 15-footer by Carly McCabe with 3 ticks only found iron. The Trojans escaped with a one-point victory. Kendra Crawford led them in scoring with 14. She also added 6 rebounds and 7 assists. Kenzie Lind had 12 points, 8 rebounds, 7 assists, and 8 steals. Geving had 12 points, 7 rebounds, and 7 assists for M-C, Christy Welscher 7 points but 13 rebounds.

Paige breaks away

There was a pair of (let's call them) six-footer's dueling; a pair of PG's dueling; Lanesboro and Fillmore Central dueled in girl's basketball. It came down to the end. One 'big' got the final punch. The other team didn't get a punch at all. A 10-2 run to end the 1st half put the home Burros up 29-24. The Falcons then went 10-5 out of the break to knot things at 34. At one point, 5'11" FC senior center Alex Peterson scored 12 of 14 Falcon points. Lanesboro's response was their 6'0" senior forward Paige Hungerholt. At one point she scored 13 of 18 Burro points, bringing things to a head. With 1:41 to go, Peterson scored and was fouled. She missed the FT but Leah Scheevel was there for the O-rebound put-back (plus foul), giving the Falcons a 4-point possession (she missed the freebie) and a 55-54 lead. Following a Burro FT, FC looked for offense. They found Hungerholt. Paige's steal and breakaway lay-in gave Lanesboro a 57-55 lead with under a minute left. The basket would be the game-winner. FC wouldn't score post four-point-play. They didn't get a shot up in the final 1:31. Behind Hungerholt's season-high 27-point evening, Lanesboro was victorious 58-55. Peterson was similarly stellar, scoring 16 in the second half alone, 22 for the game (on 8-11 FG's, 6-8 FT's) with 9 rebounds. Point guards Johanna Bearson and Morgan Malley waged their own little battle, scoring 13 and 15 respectively.
