LINDSBORG — Haven held the Smoky Valley girls to only three first quarter points as the Wildcats dominated the Vikings 58-32.
Haven’s Ashley Rogers had 12 of her game-high 23 points in that first quarter, as the Wildcat attack proved too much for Smoky Valley, who trailed 33-11 at the half.
Hannah McBride was the lone Viking in double digits with 10 points, while Maddie Klotzbach and Kelcie Anderson each added six.
Hailey Davis was the only other Wildcat in double digits with 12 points.
Smoky Valley has a ways to travel for their game Friday, as they will head to Pratt for a showdown with the Greenbacks.
Hutchinson Trinity 44
HUTCHINSON — The Lady Teutons went back and forth with Hutchinson Trinity Tuesday night, but a late third quarter push doomed Inman, who fell 44-38.
The Trinity defense clamped down on Kaitlynn Goalden, who was held to only 10 points in the loss. Abby Ropp stepped up for Inman, though, scoring 13.
“One of these games, we’re going to get over the hump,” Inman coach Jeff Friesen said. “We were in the game, just like we have the past two games, but we haven’t come away with a win.”
Berean Academy comes to town Friday night, as Inman will celebrate it’s homecoming.
REMINGTON — Moundridge and Remington both struggled offensively in a Heart of America league showdown, but the Wildcats held on to win 35-22.
Michelle Schrag led the Wildcats with 10 points, while MacKenzie Suderman added eight and Brooke Holloway had seven.
Moundridge travels to Solomon Friday night.
Little River 38
LOST SPRINGS — Little River duked it out with Centre for four quarters, but the Redskins managed to hang on for a 38-31 win over the Cougars.
Little River had a strong 20-13 lead at the half and a 29-18 lead after three quarters, but a 13 point Cougar fourth period kept Centre hanging around the game until the final buzzer.
Little River is back on the court Friday night, as they host White City.
HOPE — The Hope Lions defense claimed a goose egg in the opening period of Tuesday’s clash with Elyria Christian, on their way to a 30-14 win.
Elryia got back on track in the second quarter, outscoring the Lions 8-6, but only managed six points in the second half.
Elryia is home Friday.
