Orono Outlasts Waconia

February 19, 2014
Waconia Girls Basketball MN



     Another strong start to a game went by the wayside as foul trouble plagued Waconia, allowing Orono to rally from a double digit first half deficit. With about 8 minutes to play in the first half Waconia would lead the first place Spartans 34-22, but on the path to the lead the Wildcats were racking up many fouls on some of their key players. In an effort to prevent further foul trouble the Cats reverted to a 2-3 zone. The Spartans were able to slowly chip away at the lead and Waconia would slow down on the offensive end. Orono led 48-44 at intermission.

     The opening of the second half did not go well for the Wildcats as they committed 5 turnovers on their first 7 possessions and Orono built it's lead to 10. The lead would remain around 10 until there was about 8 minutes left in the game. That is when Orono put together another run to put the game out of reach.

     Thirteen different players scored in the game for Waconia led by Anna Schmitt with 23. No other Cat would reach double figures.

     Orono would grab 44 rebounds including 23 offensive boards. Waconia would collect 31 rebounds.

     The JV team lost a tough game 70-61. Thursday the Cats will return home to take on Glencoe-Silver Lake.
