Lady Monarchs run past Ranger

—  

By GREG WEBB

POOLVILLE — Ranger proved to be a tough opponent in the first round of District 13-1A, D-I schedule, as Poolville was able to slip past the Lady Bulldogs by a six-point margin.

Whether or not home court had anything to do with Tuesday’s outcome, at Poolville High School, the Lady Monarchs left little doubt who has raised the level of game.

Leading 33-10 by halftime, Poolville doubled its total after the break, outpacing Ranger, 66-38, and raising its district record to 6-0.

“Throughout the season, starting back in November, the girls have steadily improved,” said Poolville head coach Kelly Pae. “I think the girls have really bought into the system coach [Teri] Simpson and I have put into place.

“They love the run-and-gun and the aggressive play, and I think it shows.”

Poolville took control of the contest from the tip and midway through the opening quarter, set the tone for the game.

Tori Novak and Heather Henson had the hot hands for Poolville in the opening half, finishing the match with 17 and 16 points, respectively. Johnson made  four 3-point shots. 

Heather Henson put up 13 points in the second half, finding some opportune chances under the basket in the fourth period, and was the games’ high scorer, with 21 points.

With two district games remaining and a chance to clinch the district title in their rematch against Santo, Coach Pae knows there is still work to do before the postseason begins.

“I think our defense is very aggressive,” he said. “But we really need to get more consistent at rebounding in these last two district games, before the playoffs.”

The Poolville girls travel  to play Santo on Friday.

The Poolville boys, ranked No. 11 in the coaches’ poll, and also sporting an unblemished district record, had a comfortable lead over Ranger in the first half. 

The final score was not available at press time, Tuesday night.
