Warriorettes defeat Scotland 52-39 Jan. 6 by Tyler Knudson Usually the Warriorettes like to push it and run the court, but this game took on a whole new strategy, slow it down in a zone.
Wakonda lead in every quarter to beat the class "A" foe Scotland Highlanders 52-39.
It was the first game back from a long break for both teams Monday, Jan. 6.
The Warriorettes main defense effort was to stop Scotland's point guard Julie Schlimgen. Schlimgen was the leading scorer for Scotland with 9 points from the three-point line in the first half and two points in the second half. The Warriorettes went to a box and one defense with Schilimgen in the second half. "She only scored two points in the second half and taking the ball out of her hands really gave them problems," said coach Huber.
The Warriorettes welcomed back all-conference player Nikki Johnston for her first game back from orthoscopic knee surgery, and she lead the team with 16 points three steals.
Other top performers were Meghan Martz with 12 points and Rachel Bentaas with 10 points. Kim Henriksen lead the team in rebounds with six and Lindsay Nelson in assists with five.
The junior varsity Warriorettes game ended with Scotland winning 32-24.
