Girls surge throughout to win 72-53

Tigers 72, ACGC 53
The GBB Tigers impressed with their play at the ACGC gym on Friday, Jan. 20. We took charge to assume a 36-27 lead at halftime. We continued taking care of business in the second half, outscoring the Falcons 37-26 to win in the 72-53 final.
Our outside shooting touch was impressive. Correy Hickman showed a sharp eye with three 3-point makes. Riley Decker found the range to make two 3-pointers. Malory Anderson connected once from three-point land.
Hickman was all over the court to steal the ball six times. Decker and Nicole Solvie each contributed five assists. Jenna Howden led in rebounds with nine. Howden was also at the top of the scoring list with 19 points. Hickman and Ashley Solvie each put in 15 points. Decker's output was ten points. Then we have Nicole Solvie with eight points and Anderson with five.
Atwater-Cosmos-Grove City was not without its flashes of talent. Just look at Addison Bernstein with her 25 points. Bernstein made two 3-pointers and Maree Lee made one. Bernstein worked the boards well to collect seven rebounds. Lee performed four assists. Kendra Miller led in steals with eight followed by Bernstein with four.
Boys: Tigers 70, Montevideo 68 (3 OT)
A triple overtime thriller saw the Morris Area Chokio Alberta Tigers prevail over Montevideo on the road. Maybe it shouldn't have been that close. We were up by ten at halftime, 34-24. Monte showed resolve on defense in the second half, picking up momentum to get the score tied at the end of regulation. It was 53-all.
The Tigers and Thunder Hawks traded points through the first two overtime extensions. The deadlock persisted. Finally in the third OT, MACA carved out the advantage with Jacob Zosel putting in the winning points. Zosel showed poise making a layup to give his team the winning difference in the 70-68 final. He showed poise all night as he scored the team-best 30 points.
Camden Arndt was No. 2 on the list with 16 points. The list continues with Jaret Johnson (13), Tim Travis (10) and Lukus Manska (1). Johnson connected twice from three-point range while Zosel had one three-point make.
Monte displayed a balanced attack with Travis Dreyer scoring 18 points, Riley Emery putting in 17 and Isaac Douglas adding 14. Then we have Andrew Sweeney (7), Derek Kilibarda (6), Henry Strune (4) and Isaac Hoogevsen (2). Emery had the only 3-point make for the T-Hawks. Dreyer's nine rebounds topped that list.
Emery worked the boards for seven rebounds. Douglas had six assists and four steals. Douglas had a last-gasp 3-point attempt to try to salvage victory for his T-Hawks, but it was no-go.
Wrestling: Tigers 43, United 36
The home gym was the site for a dramatic wrestling win Thursday (1/19). Gage Wevley provided the margin of victory in this crowd-pleasing win for the Tigers.

Girls hockey: Prairie Center 7, MBA 3
Morris Benson Area scored a goal in each of the three periods in the game against Prairie Center. But it wasn't enough as Prairie Center surged in the first and third periods with three goals in each. They polished things off with a second period goal in this 7-3 win for them. Let's compliment the MBA girls on scoring their three goals on just nine shots!
Leah Thompson scored the first period goal for MBA at 4:18. Shelby Otte scored two of the Prairie Center goals in the first, and Lupita Mora scored the other. Hallie Watzke scored the second period goal for MBA, assisted by Megan Kirkeide at 13:43. Sara McCoy put the puck in the net for the opposition.
Then in the third period it was Taryn Picht scoring for the Storm at 16:57. Otte performed smoothly again for Prairie Center as she got two of her team's third period goals, with Reece Ritter getting the other.
The goalies were Abby Hoffman for MBA and Mackenzie Och for Prairie Center. Hoffman had 28 saves while Och had six.
