It was homecoming night at Moundridge High School, and the girls' basketball team played lights out as they blew out Canton-Galva High School, 59-29.
Moundridge had a fast start in the first half after a 13-0 run. Canton-Galva went scoreless in the first quarter. It wasn’t until six minutes into the second quarter when the Lady Eagles put points on the board.
The Lady Wildcats dominated from inside, using their size advantage to attack the rim. Despite a huge lead, Moundridge head coach Brian Holloway was disappointed in finding shots from the outside.
“It would be nice if we had some outside shots. We’re a decent 3-point shooting team. We just couldn’t find our range tonight,” Holloway said.
Bethany Stucky, who was voted homecoming queen by her peers, was the best the player on the court as she led the game with 24 points. Holloway has been amazed by the seniors performance Friday night and all season.
“Bethany has led us to a big run, and we kind of found her. We feed off her energy, and the girls did a good job giving her the ball, and she made her shots. If we can keep her going, it helps everyone else out, and we can juke it out knocked down some shots,” Holloway said.
Two more girls for Moundridge finished in double-figures. Erin Durst, a freshman, was the second leading scorer with 13 points. Hailey Unruh was third with 10 points.
The Lady Eagles only had one player who finished the game with double-digit points. Tia Moddelmog led the Lady Eagles with 12 points.
With one more game left for both teams, The Lady Wildcats improve their record to 12-8 on the season and will face Solomon High School at 6 p.m in Moundridge.
Canton-Galva falls to 8-10 of the year and will have their final game at home against Little River High School at 6 p.m.
