Junior High Girls Dominate Quinter

On Monday, November 20, the junior high girls basketball teams defeated the Quinter Lady Bulldogs in St. Francis. The A-team opened the evening in the High School Gymnasium with a dominating 41-10 performance. The B-team defeated Quinter at the Grade School by a score of 38-12. The C-team girls played a 1-quarter contest with the Lady Indians losing 4-8.

Quinter's Bryton Mesch opened the scoring in the A-team contest, but an assist from Mia Morrow led to an out-of-bounds play basket by Jordan Faulkender to tie the contest. Lyden Lampe then added a basket from the right wing after an offensive rebound. Neither team scored in the second half of the first period, and St. Francis led 4-2 at the break.

Quinter's Jadelyn Betz opened the second period with fast-break basket on press-offense (plus one) to give Quinter a 4-5 lead. It would be the last lead the Lady Bulldogs would own. Consecutive baskets by Talexa Weeter gave the Lady Indians a bit of breathing room, and with the addition of an offensive rebound score by Mia Morrow, an out-of-bounds play basket by Jordan Faulkender, a baseline drive by Weeter, and two offensive rebound scores by Faulkender and Ellee Krien, the Lady Indians held a 19-7 lead at halftime.

The Lady Indians extended their advantage to 30-7 before Quinter scored again. Talexa Weeter added three baskets and Jordan Faulkender two to open the third period. After a free-throw by the Lady Bulldogs, Mia Morrow and Ellee Krien scored on offensive rebound baskets moving the scoreboard to 34-8. With the addition of a Weeter trey and steal-two later in the contest, the Lady Indians earned a 41-10 victory.
