Getts carries Columbia Falls past Frenchtown

Posted: Sunday, January 26, 2014 12:00 am

COLUMBIA FALLS — Down three starters and facing its toughest competition for the Northwestern A crown, No. 1 Columbia Falls (9-1 overall, 4-0 Northwestern A) looked toward its bench on Saturday, getting a career-high 24 points from senior post Andrea Getts in a decisive 55-42 girls basketball win over Frenchtown, earning a season sweep of the Broncs (6-4, 2-2).

Getts was unstoppable in the second half, scoring 18 points with three rebounds, two steals and a block. She personally outscored the Frenchtown team 11-2 in the final four minutes of the game to turn a four-point lead into a comfortable win.

“We’re three players short, it was an opportunity for somebody else to step up,” Columbia Falls coach Cary Finberg said.

“That’s a nice luxury to have, when you have a senior post coming off the bench like that, that accepts her role and she did a good job with it. She worked hard and ran the floor. When she got her opportunity she took advantage of it.”

While it was close throughout, the Wildkats didn’t trail after the 2:28-mark of the first quarter. Strong defense and rebounding, coupled with an offense that took care of the ball, was enough to overcome missing starters Haley Belgarde, Ciera Finberg and Summer Burlage, a group that averages a combined 21.1 points a game.

“We were a lot more aggressive tonight (than Friday against Flathead),” Finberg said.

“Our movement was better, our cuts were better. I don’t think we saw quite the pressure we saw from Flathead. I wasn’t sure, being shorthanded, how we were going to handle that. Those kids stepped up huge.

“For us to only have 12 turnovers and 19 assists, that’s a credit to the girls making the right decision and moving the ball.”

Columbia Falls slowly built its lead, led by its defense. The Wildkats were able to pick through the Broncs’ 2-3 zone in the second half, getting to the rim to turn a three-point game midway through the third quarter into a 37-28 lead entering the fourth. Back-to-back 3-pointers from sophomore guard Brooke Yarnall cut the lead to 44-40 with 4:42 left in the game, but the Kats shut them down after that, holding them to a jumper in the final seconds while dumping the ball to Getts in the post to extend the lead.

Winter Kemppainen had 11 points, four assists and three rebounds for the Wildkats, who had four players with at least four assists. Cydney Finberg had seven points, six rebounds, seven assists and three steals and both Kiara Burlage and Miranda Livingston had four assists. Allyson Gimbel led Columbia Falls with nine rebounds.

Vanessa Stavish, who is second in Class A in scoring this season averaging 18.3 points per game, had 11 points for Frenchtown. Yarnall had 10.

The win gives the Wildkats a two-game lead in the conference, a significant advantage going into the stretch run of the season.

“Come divisional time that’s huge,” Finberg said.

“We’ve got some games ahead of us. I thought the last two weeks, with playing Glacier, playing Flathead and Frenchtown tonight, the girls handled it for the most part pretty well. I think we became better because of it.”

BC girls sting Yellowjackets

Seniors continued to provide the steadying hands, but some younger players surged forward and stamped their imprints, too, as the Maroons won in girls’ basketball on Saturday.
The youngish BC squad walloped Stevensville 58-28 in a Southwestern A Conference prep game played at the Maroon Activities Center. The Yellowjackets, too, put forth a youthful squad save for a handful of experienced players.
The experience factor rose in the form of fouls as Stevensville saw three girls fill their personal quotas and the team finish play with just four eligible players. Some of the reserves had spent quarters in the junior varsity game and reached their participation limit for the day.
“They’re getting better,” Butte Central head coach Meg Murphy said of the Maroons. “We came out strong and I felt we played well early. Then we went into a kind of a sleep mode.”
Senior guards Shelby Paffhausen and Chandra McCurdy helped to set the BC tempo early and Paffhausen scored 10 of her game-high 15 points in the first half. Sophomore post Ryan Trudnowski battled well on the inside and led on the boards with seven rebounds for the game. Freshman guard Emily St. John sparked the defense, and displayed a good court sense with five steals — all in the second half — and four assists. It was her best game in her blooming career.
The BC girls were never threatened. They rocketed to a 9-0 lead with the 5-foot-9 Trudnowski scoring five in the run — and held a 14-2 command at the end of the first quarter. The Yellowjackets’ only points came on a pair of free throws by senior Kayla Peterson. Their first field goal came 32 seconds into the second period on a drive to the basket by Carly Sebastian.
After gaining the wide margin so quickly, Butte Central seemed to back off some and did not expand on it the rest of the half. The Maroons controlled a 27-16 difference and shot mostly free throws in the second frame with freshman Mollie Peoples going 4-for-4 to lead the way at the line.
St. John then went on her theft spree. Her steals and near-steals sparked BC to a 40-20 advantage. St. John tallied the first points on a steal-and-layup and downed two foul shots later that were also the result of a steal in the frontcourt.
“St. John came out and turned the second half with a couple of quick steals,” Murphy said.
Butte Central’s production was pretty balanced through the roster during the second half as Murphy was able to rotate several players through the on-court five. Trudnowski bossed the boards in a five-point effort for the quarter and Peoples led the scoring in the fourth with five points.
The third quarter ended with the Maroons holding a 43-24 lead. They closed the game on a 9-0 run in putting up the final 30-point difference.
The BC defense allowed just four points, all by Sebastian, in the last quarter and limited the Yellowjackets to only a dozen points after intermission. Murphy said stymieing Peterson was a major benefit. The Stevi star was held to 11 points, but nine were tallied before halftime.
“”We’d talked about not giving Peterson good looks at the basket and she got several (in the first half),” Murphy said. “So a positive was we held her to two points in the second half.
“A win’s a win. I’m proud of the way some of our kids came off the bench and played well.”
The BC team dominated the boards as Trudnowski finished with seven rebounds, and McCurdy and Teresa Piazzola each garnered five. Trudnowski’s 13 points backed Paffhausen in the scoring column. Peoples finished with nine points, McCurdy with seven, St. John six, Piazzola five, and Sierra Pica three. Rylee Green, Kate Ossello and Courtney Thomas all contributed to the win, too,
Sebastian tallied nine points, second on Stevensville’s team behind Peterson, before fouling out. Carly Vercruyssen notched six points and Maddie Boesch had the other two. Only four Yellowjackets scored points.
The Maroons raised their records to 5-7 overall and 3-3 in conference with the win. They will be home on Tuesday against Belgrade in a doubleheader at the MAC. The Belgrade and Butte Central boys’ teams will play the other game of the twin bill.
Stevensville fell to 2-9 for the season, including 1-4 in league action.
