Girls: Litchfield 50, Tigers 48
The MACA girls own a 3-3 record with one game left before Christmas. They were hoping to build their mark to 4-2, but Thursday's fortunes were not in their favor. The game went into overtime.
The visiting Litchfield Dragons outscored the Tigers 6-4 in overtime. Thus the Tigers were dealt a heartbreaker.
Coach Dale Henrich's orange and black crew was denied in the 50-48 final. Litch came out of the night at 3-2.
The Tigers trailed 21-19 at halftime but outscored the Dragons 25-23 in the second half. Fans dealt with the suspense of overtime. It wasn't the Tigers' night.
Hannah Norlin was a Dragon breathing some fire as she put in 22 points. Macy Huhner scored nine followed by Kyndra Beavers and Mariah Hoff each with six. Kelsey Wattenhofer scored four points and Breanna Sittig three.
Beavers, Hoff and Huhner each made a three-pointer.
The Tigers would have won had they been a bit better in 3-pointers. They were cold, making one of six shots with Becca Holland having the success. The Tigers were 20 of 63 in total field goals, and seven of 19 in freethrows.
Abbie Olson led in rebounds with seven. Lauren Reimers led in assists with six, and Becca Holland was tops in steals with five.
Reimers was the top Morris Area Chokio Alberta scorer with 14 points. She was joined in double figures by Beth Holland who put in eleven. Becca Holland, Lacee Maanum and Olson each scored seven points, and Moira McNally put in two.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
