Carly Sigurdson of the visiting BOLD Warriors was sensational on Tuesday, Jan. 14. But it was the host Morris Area Chokio Alberta Tigers who won the game.
MACA fans were happy at game's end, having seen their team up its conference record to 5-1, and also with the opportunity to see someone with Sigurdson's offensive prowess. Sigurdson made six 3-pointers. Wow! Her point total was a most lofty 39. She simply needed more complementary elements around her. Maybe she's too much of a one-person team.
Whatever, it was the orange and black Tigers showing the winning chemistry. Coach Dale Henrich's Tigers upped their overall season record to 7-5.
The game was tight at halftime with MACA owning an edge of one, 23-22. The Tigers then turned on the jets the rest of the way, outscoring Sigurdson and her BOLD mates 34-29. The Tigers won 57-51.
BOLD came out of the night with a 6-4 overall record, 4-2 in conference.
Sigurdson made all but one of her team's three-pointers. Baylay Kubesh made the other. Sigurdson also led BOLD in rebounds with six, and shared the lead in steals with three, with Kubesh and Mallory Steffel.
The Tigers were two of nine in three-point shooting with Becca Holland having both of the makes. Becca topped the MACA scoring list with her 18 points.
The stats show MACA with a balanced scoring attack in contrast to BOLD, as four Tigers scored in double figures. Becca was joined in that category by Lauren Reimers with eleven points, and Beth Holland and Lacee Maanum both with ten. Kaitlin Vogel put in four points, while Nicole Strobel and Moira McNally each had two.
Maanum attacked the boards to accumulate 12 rebounds. Becca pulled down nine rebounds.
Becca had the team-best assist total of four, and she was also tops in steals with four. Abbie Olson came through with three steals.
In total field goals the Tigers were 23 of 75. In freethrows: nine of 18.
How dominant was Sigurdson in BOLD's scoring? No other Warrior had more than three points! Kubesh had three - she had to, because she made a 3-pointer - and after that it's a series of 2's on the scoring list, and then one Warrior with one point.
