Polson 46, Eureka 41
 
At Polson, the host Lady Pirates cobbled together a first half margin over visiting 7B Eureka, only to have the Lady Lions come roaring back in the second half. A pair of back-to-back triples by Alyssa White closed the gap to a single bucket 22-20, then Eureka tied the game at 23 apiece a couple of possessions later before Polson was able to reassert its edge at the three quarter mark. A deuce down under by post Cassidy Morgan would knot things up once again at 27 apiece. Eureka would take its only lead of the night off what could qualify as a dual assist from Morgan that passed through the fingertips of Caitlin Larson into the hands of Mikayla Grove, who layed it into the basket for a 27-29 Eureka advantage. After that, Polson's proficient post player Heidi Rausch went to work. Rausch tied the game once again at 29 apiece on a pair of free throws, then gave the Lady Pirates the lead for good off a pair of deuces down under that had little to do with the geographic proximity of Australia which pushed the margin to 33-29 in Polson's favor. Polson would execute its offense with precision over the next couple of possessions to stretch its advantage to 38-29, forcing the Lady Lions to call a time out. Eureka was hampered in its efforts to climb back into the game when their all-state post player Morgan picked up her 4th personal foul at the 6 minute mark of the 3rd quarter. All-conference 2nd-team guard White led the Lady Lions with 11 points on the strength of 50th percentile shooting from behind the arc. Polson placed a pair in double figures, led by the double-double of Heidi Rausch with 15* points along with 13 boards and a dozen pitched in by Mackenzie Banner, the latter who shot a stellar 9-10 from the charity stripe.

unofficial game rendition by John Heglie. Some details may vary from official summary. For some perplexing reason to this detail conscious connoisseur, my scoring tally did not mesh with that of the announcer/scoring table nor with another reliable unofficial scorer. Being outnumbered, I would be inclined to defer to majority rule, but have opted to retain my tally should film review uphold this interpretation of events that transpired (Rausch 5 x 2FG + 5-7 FT, DiGiallonardo 2 x 2FG + 3-5 FT). Normally I can tell the difference between the two players, but perhaps their jersey numbers 24 and 44 were conflated or I suffered an alzheimer moment?

 

Maroon girls complete sweep of Beavers

 
Updated: February 1, 2013

Butte Central has plenty in reserve when it comes to high school girls’ basketball effort.

It was evident Friday night when the Maroon reserves contributed 14 points and terrific defense to a 43-21 thumping of Dillon in Southwestern A Conference hoops in the Maroon Activities Center.

The backups saw a lot of time, including Danika Neumann stepping into a starting role with leading scorer Danee Leary sidelined by a hamstring injury. Neumann, the usual first reserve off the bench, responded with nine points. Hannah Stajcar led the offense with 11 points.

However, it was the stifling defense BC played that pleased head coach Meg Murphy. The effort included a 34-22 difference in rebounds, and limiting the Beavers to 13 second-half shots from the floor. They made three of them while scoring only nine points after halftime.

Senior starters Mariah Cooney and Annie Ossello led Butte Central on the boards with 13 and nine rebounds, respectively.

None of the Dillon scorers reached double figures. Cierra Lamey led the team with eight points and the other four Beaver starters combined for just three points, two of them being held scoreless.

The Maroon victory capped a sweep of the regular-season two-game series between the two teams.

“It was a great defensive effort by every kid who stepped on the floor for us,” Murphy said. “We focused on it all week and you could tell the difference. I can’t say enough about what we did defensively.

“Annie Ossello and Mariah Cooney boarded the heck out of it. We missed some easy shots, but went right back after it. Overall, I thought this was the best we’ve played as a team, and we played a lot of kids tonight.”

Dillon led four times –  2-0 on a Lamey rebound cleanup, 4-2 on a Lamey pullup jumper, 10-8 on a steal and layup by Shay Parke that tallied the first points of the second quarter, and 12-10 after two free throws were made by Alex Rouse.

The Butte Central girls then went on a 13-0 tear to close the half and take over the lead for good. Cooney and Neumann accounted for all of the scoring in the run.

The Maroons widened the gap in the second half.

They caged five of their six free throws awarded over the game. Dillon was 4-for-9 from the foul line in a contest that saw just 20 fouls called, 10 on each team.

“After last week’s dismal performance at the free throw line (in a loss to Hamilton), it was nice to see,” Murphy said of the Maroons’ shooting from the line Friday. “I’m pleased with how all our kids played. They played hard and gave me all they had.”

Alysea Pica scored nine points for the Maroons, Cooney finished with six, Ossello with three, and Aleesha Breche and Sierra Pica put in two points each. Shelby Paffhausen sank a free throw.

Chandra McCurdy and Taylor Templin also played.

Butte Central will play at Livingston on Saturday at 4 p.m. in a non-conference Class A game.

Rouse finished with seven points for the Beavers. Parke and Janet Moore tallied two points each, Kayla Milne and Holly Andersen netted one apiece, and Courtney Linder, Audrey Schurg, Tiffany Hayden and Jordan Peterson all saw duty.
