Stevens Point– Things in the Wisconsin Valley Conference just got a whole lot more interesting after Wausau West, fresh off a road win over Wisconsin Rapids on Monday night, defeated conference-leading SPASH 47-41 in Stevens Point on Tuesday night.
West and SPASH are now deadlocked at the top of the conference with identical 9-2 records.
SPASH jumped out to a 16-8 lead after one quarter, but the Panthers’ offense went cold in the second quarter, scoring only six points in the frame, while the Warriors heated up. Wausau West went into halftime with a 23-22 lead.
West never looked back and never fell behind SPASH for the remainder of the game.
To show how even this game was throughout, SPASH and West had the exact same number of turnovers (12), steals (5) and blocks (2).
SPASH was led on offense by Heather Woyak’s 15 points.
Caity Coleman paced West with 13 points, followed by Katy Cihlar’s 12 and Jasmin Samz’ 11.
The plot will thicken further in Valley Conference play as both Wausau West and SPASH still have one remaining game against second place D.C. Everest. West will square off against Everest on Friday night, while SPASH will face Everest on February 21. Everest, who defeated Merrill on Tuesday night, will be on the road for both of those games.
