SENTINEL TRIBUNE Wednesday, December 15, 2010 Page 9 BOWLING NEWS By Sheryl Woelber Coach Mother Nature delayed the start to the WWG Girls Basketball season. The open- ing game scheduled with Wabasso on Nov. 30 had to be rescheduled for Dec. 2. The game started off slow for the Chargers as they found themselves down by 10 points in the early min- utes but the Chargers fought back to take a 4 point lead at halftime with a score of 30-26. Poor rebounding and 2nd half fouls plagued the Chargers as the Rabbits shot 33 flee throws in the game compared to the Chargers 23. Wabasso out rebounded the Chargers 52-30. WWG held on to the lead through- out the 2nd half, but were not able to come away with the victory. The final score was Wabasso 62, WWG 56. Leading scorers for the Chargers were Chanel Madson with 23, Paige Erickson with 13 and Maddie Frank with 10. Leading rebounders were Anne Woelber and Erickson with 8 rebounds a piece. The Chargers shot a very chilly 43% from the free throw line. The Chargers turned around the next night to face Round Lake Brewster in their first conference game and came away with a vic- tory by a score of 76-46. The first half was a high scoring affair with the Chargers tak- ing the lead at halftime, 38-28. After a few defensive changes at halftime, the Chargers were able to hold the Raiders to 18 points in the 2nd half and came away with a nice victory of 76-46. Leading scorers for the Chargers were Madson with 26 points, Erickson with 18 and Woelber with 12. Karley Deprez was the leading rebounder for the Chargers. On Thursday, Dec. 9, the Chargers headed to Slayton for their first road game of the season to take on Murray County Central. The Chargers again got off to a slow start and were down 15 -2 at one point. The Rebels height and full court press gave the Chargers a tough time and WWG also found themselves in foul trouble during the first half. The Chargers did not give up and went to the locker room at halftime down by 13 points, 21-34. The 2nd half was a whole new ball game as the Chargers came out with full court pressure and fought their way back to find them- selves down by 1 point with about 20 seconds left on the clock. WWG had a chance to tie the game but were unable to convert on their free throws and had to foul right away. MCC scored one of their two free throws which left the Chargers down by 2 points with about 13 seconds left on the clock and no time- outs. WWG had a chance to tie the game, but were unable to get a good shot off and the buzzer sounded leaving the Chargers with the loss. The final score was MCC 54, WWG 52. Katie Dusek played very good defense along with Madson and Molly Jarmer in the front court. Dusek had 3 steals on the night and Madson and Jarmer each had 2. Madson and Frank fmished with 7 rebounds and Madson was high scorer with 19 points. Erickson finished with 12 points and Frank and Woelber each added 7 points. The Chargers finished the night shooting a much better 71% from the free throw line. WWG is 1-2 on the season and 1-1 in the Red Rock Conference. They fin- ish the year taking on MLBO, Adrian and partici- pating in the MLBO Christmas Tourney.

Despite a poor night shooting, 25% from the field and 10-17 from the charity stripe, the Chargers ball control and team defense kept them in the game for the full 36 min- utes. WWG got out to a small lead early in the contest, but couldn't extend the gap when the opportunity pre- sented itself. Instead they found themselves in a 10-10 tie halfway through the first half. From there SSC went on a 6-0 run over the next five minutes and eventually took a 26-19 lead into half- time. The Chargers continued to battle throughout the sec- ond half, but every time it seemed like they were going to make a run the Quasars would come up with an offensive rebound or WWG would fail to convert at the free throw line. SSC gradu- ally built a 12 point lead, only to see the Chargers close the gap to four points on three separate occasions in the final four minutes. The experience the young Chargers gained, from being on the road and having opportunities to make plays in crunch time situations, will benefit them greatly as the season progresses. Aaron Theisen led all scor- ers with 21 points (7 rebounds and 5 assists). Jacob Comnick scored 8 points, Jared Lindaman 6, Taylor Lindaman 4, and Andy Merrick 2. WWG 61 Adrian 53 Friday night, December 10 before the winter storm, the Chargers took a trip to Adrian and came away with an eight point victory. WWG led for most of the contest, but didn't stretch the lead until the final six 8 minutes of the second half. In the first half the Chargers got 9 points from Jacob Comnick and a couple timely three pointers by the Lindaman brothers to build a lead of up to six points. Adrian scored on a pair of offensive rebounds inside the final minute and cut the Charger lead to 28-27 at halftime. In the second half WWG used a couple extended offensive possessions to dis- rupt the flow of the game and put pressure on the Dragon defense. The Charger lead stayed in the five point range for the ten minutes, but three pointers by Aaron Theisen and Taylor Lindaman stopped a pair of Dragon comebacks. Andy Merrick and Jared Lindaman each had offen- sive rebound scores as the Chargers went the entire first half without an offen- sive rebound. WWG survived some first half foul trouble thanks to the bench play of John Elzenga and Reed Bakken. It was Elzenga who dumped in a couple buckets as he got behind the Adrian pressure in the last six minutes of the game. The Chargers had four players in double fig- ures, led by Aaron Theisens 17 points and 6 assists. Jared Lindaman put in a career high 14 points and grabbed 6 rebounds. Jacob Comnick had 11 points and 8 rebounds. Taylor Lindaman knocked down 5 of 6 free throws in his 11 points. Merrick and Elzenga rounded out the scoring with 4 points each. Friday and Saturday WWG will be hosting the 5th annual Candy Cane Classic. The tournament has SSC vs. Lincoln HI at 6:30 Friday and Lakeview vs. WWG to follow. By Adam Kletscher Coach On Thursday, December 9, the Chargers headed to Slayton to take on the MCC Rebels. The Chargers started the game a little slow, but ral- lied back to tighten up the score 17-15 before the half. After the break, the Rebels made some great adjustments and turned the game around in their favor. The ladies worked hard, but the Rebels were just too much and won the game 51-19. Kelsi Wahl led all scorers with 7 points. Dayna Comnick 5 points, Elizabeth Woelber 4 points, Jordaan Joel 2 points, and Katie Dusek 1 point.
