Bulldogs cruise in Weyauwega
Indians looking for first victory
By Greg Seubert
Thirty-seven turnovers and six baskets added up to a loss for the Weyauwega-Fremont girls’ basketball team.
The Indians dropped a 60-20 decision to New London Nov. 26 in Weyauwega. W-F also came out on the short end of a 41-25 Nov. 15 to Pacelli.
New London 60, W-F 20
Katie Bleck’s basket gave the Indians a 2-0 lead, but the Bulldogs then outscored the home team 39-6 to take a 39-8 halftime lead.
Shots were few and far between for the Indians, as they made only one more in the opening half and added four more in the second half.
Meanwhile, the Bulldogs led by as many as 44 points behind 16 points from Kate Christian and 11 from Meghan Besaw.
Bleck led the Indians with six points. Julia Rice and Rylee Bartel added nine and seven rebounds, respectively, while scoring five points each.
“Committing 37 turnovers and giving up 15 offensive rebounds is tough to overcome,” coach Joe Titus said. “They scored 41 points off turnovers and 12 points off of offensive rebounds. We need to shore those things up.”
Pacelli 41, W-F 25
Pacelli led 20-13 at halftime before outscoring the Indians 21-12 in the second half.
Bleck, Bartel and Hannah Timm led the Indians with six points each, while Sarah Mueller scored 17 points for Pacelli.
“They had some big strong kids that racked up 17 offensive rebounds and those extra possessions can hurt,” Titus said. “The girls are working their tails off. I have to do a better job of putting them in a better position to be successful. We will continue to work hard and compete.”
The Indians will host North Fond du Lac at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 4, before opening Central Wisconsin Conference East Division play at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 7, at Shiocton.
