WARRIORS GIRLS DOWN LUTHERAN

Warrior Girls post much-needed win @ Lincoln Lutheran Wahoo hopes for two straight @ Syracuse on Friday Wahoo traveled to Lincoln Lutheran and ended the night victorious, 46-37. Brianna Brabec sank 1 of 2 free throws to start the night for the Warriors. Another score by Brabec and a score by Elly Larson set the tone for the night. A Hallie Reeve’s steal and a finished and-one play caught Lincoln Lutheran off guard; however, Lutheran responded to the call with a 3-point conversion of their own. Three turnovers in a row slowed Wahoo’s pursuit, but another steal, score and free throw by Reeves gave an 11-10 first quarter performance. It took awhile for Wahoo to regain momentum in the second quarter after turning the ball over four times in a row. Mallory Lindstrom broke the ice by sinking a free throw, and an and-one play by Brabec, followed by some Shelby Milliken free throws, put Wahoo in action. The third steal of seven for the night by Reeves allowed Taryn Scheef to be fouled on the shot, sinking her two free throws. Emma Hastings then went on to make another free throw. Wahoo battled the offensive boards, and a rebound and finish product by Scheef put the Warriors up at half, 22-21. Third quarter was a bit of a struggle for Wahoo. A lone two-point conversion by Brabec and much needed free throw points by Maddie Larson were the only scores for the Warriors. The Lutheran Warriors were able to outscore Wahoo 10-5 and took a 4-point advantage, ending the third quarter with Wahoo down 27-31. Determination and teamwork prevailed in the fourth. A strong defensive rebound by Lindstrom to Reeves enabled her to go coast to coast to ignite the fire. The fire kept burning with a left side trey by Brabec. Seconds later a steal by Scheef to Reeves gave another opportunity to finish on an and-one play. The Wahoo Warriors finally had the edge over their opponents and Lincoln Lutheran was forced to foul. The Warriors kept the lead by making their free throws. The combination of defenses all night finally took a toll on Lutheran. Wahoo caused havoc on defense and forced Lutheran to turn the ball over nine times in the fourth quarter. “We never lost our focus tonight, even when the pressure was on, and our bench did a nice job coming in and making good things happen,” said Head Coach Linda Walker. “This was a much-needed win!” January 5, 2016 (Away) Wahoo 46 Lincoln Lutheran 37 W (3-7)
