REMINGTON — The Inman girls made a good showing to kick off 2013, but came up just short in a Heart of America League matchup Friday night, falling 57-47. The Teutons trailed only 28-23 after the first two quarters, and held their own in the third quarter, but Remington outpaced Inman 14-10 in the fourth to pull out the victory. “We played pretty well throughout the game,” Inman coach Jeff Friesen said. “The girls are playing hard and getting better. It’s tough to keep telling we’re getting better when we aren’t winning, but we’ve just got to hang in there and keep competing.” Inman’s Kaitlynn Goalden led all scorers with 22 points, followed closely by Kylee Schunn’s 20. Kristyn Wedel added 16 for the Broncos. In the boys’ contest, the Broncos defeated Inman 69-53. Alex Ropp led the way for the Teutons with 21 points, followed by Josh Miller’s 18. Caleb Tanner had 17 points for Remington, while Logan Schrag had 14, Paul Janzen added 12 and Grant Claasen had 11. The Teutons are back in action Tuesday with a road contest against Hutchinson Trinity.
