Yellow Medicine East 46, Tigers 27
The color pink prevailed at the MAHS gym, home of the Tigers, Friday. Orange and black had to give way to this special cause-related color.
The Tigers took the court hoping to turn back the Sting of Yellow Medicine East.
The Tigers have been a bit offense-deprived lately. They could use a hot streak in 3's. There was no such good fortune for the orange and black crew Friday.
The Tigers succumbed to YME and their premier rebounder, Emily Baker. Baker is a Sting senior who vacuums the boards. She broke the YME school record for rebounds Friday at the expense of our Tigers.
Baker blended in with an efficient YME attack. Her contributions on this night included eleven points and 13 rebounds. With those rebounds this student-athlete of distinction passed Jenny Kuehn's career mark of 716 boards. Baker came out of Friday with 723.
Kylie Jans put in ten points for the Sting, who crafted their 14th win of the season against nine losses. The Sting came out of Friday with a sparkling 8-4 conference mark.
The Sting's Courtney Hinz put in nine points and collected nine rebounds.
The Tigers' offensive woes with the anemic point total of 27 was a carryover from the Sauk Centre game. Against Sauk Centre on Tuesday, the offensive output was 33 points - suggesting room for improvement. Sauk Centre scored 67.
Coach Dale Henrich is striving to get the fortunes reversed with the post-season getting near.
The Tigers fell to the Sting in the 46-27 scoreboard final Friday. The game wasn't out of reach at halftime as MACA trailed by five, 19-14.
Katie Holzheimer scored eleven points to top that list. Courtney Gades scored seven, MaKenzie Smith six, Cassey Hickman two and Nicole Strobel one.
The offense needs a jump start.
