It might be the most important girl's basketball game prior to the Christmas Break in the 10th Region. The winner becomes a lead contender in the race for the 37th District's top seed. The Lady 'Stangs passed this early season test clipping the wings of the Scott Lady Eagles 58-46 on the road in Taylor Mill. That pushes Brossart to a perfect 5-0 and a 2-0 record in the District. Scott falls to 4-1 following wins over Villa Madonna, Ludlow, Calvary and Silver Grove.
The Lady Eagles traveled to a 13-3 lead early in this titantic struggle but a patent and veteran Lady 'Stang club powered back running off 15 unanswered points to take the lead for good and held a six point halftime lead. They extended that the second half to as many as 14 before settling in for a final dozen point advantage.
Brossart dominated every statistical category including rebounds 44-31, field goal percentage 42.6% to 37.5%, total field goals 23-18, free throw points 12-8, Pts off turnovers 13-9, offensive rebound pct. 45% to 25.7%, second chance points 8-6, and points off the bench 12-7.
Abby Stadtmiller led the team with 15 points while Sarah Futscher followed with 13 and Morgan Verst added 10. Futscher also added 12 rebounds and 5 assists on her resume. Emily Schultz chipped in 9 points and 6 rebounds for her undefeated team. The jv fell while the freshmen leading by 7 lost a heartbreaking one point game at Mueller Arena.
