Prairie Home boys topple Bunceton 47-31 in CCAA
Melanie Wolfe burned the nets for a game-high 11 points, and teammate Emily Schupp added 10 as the Pilot Grove girls junior high basketball team turned back Jamestown 44-23 in CCAA action Tuesday night at Jamestown.
The Lady Tigers, 9-0 on the season, outscored Jamestown in three out of the four quarters of play and led 7-6 after one, 21-10 at the half and 38-14 after three quarters of play. Meanwhile, in the final period, Jamestown outscored Pilot Grove 9-6.
Pilot Grove coach Landon Daniel said it was a bit of a slow start but a good finish for the girls.
“We struggled hitting shots and with turnovers in the
first quarter but one great thing about this group is that they keep working and eventually turned it around,” Daniel said. “Chloe Schlotzhauer has had two really nice games for us and stepping into a starter role and Emily Schupp and Melanie Wolfe had good games tonight as well. We hope to close out our Conference schedule this Friday with another win and continue our hot streak for the last two weeks of the season against St. Peter and Paul and Santa Fe, and then the Harrisburg Tournament.”
