Bison Stampede Over Wildcats
December 21, 2013Waconia Girls Basketball MN
Playing their third game in four days, the Fun N Gun Wildcats were not able to keep up with the Buffalo Bison, falling 112-104. Buffalo led 55-51 at halftime and while the Cats were able to take a small lead early in the second half, offensive rebounds by the Bison proved costly and the Cats weren't able to keep Buffalo off the scoreboard.
Poor shooting again wounded the Wildcats as the team was just 3 for 20 on 3's in the first half and 9 for 42 for the game (21.4%) Buffalo was 43 for 100 from the floor while Waconia was 33 for 93 (35.4%). Buffalo earned extra shots at the basket by hauling down 26 offensive rebounds. Waconia would grab 20 offensive boards.
Anna Schmitt paced the Cats with 32 points. Madelin Dammann added 22 and Kaylee Vanderhoff scored 14 for Waconia.
The Wildcats fall to 3 and 6 on the season and will now enjoy a 5 day rest before returning to practice for a contest against Waseca on Dec. 28th.
The JV Cats lost by a wide margin but the 9th grade Cats earned their 3rd consecutive victory with a 56-48 win over Buffalo. Abby Gregor knocked down 7 three pointers on her way to 26 points.
