W-B 42, W-F 40
WEYAUWEGA – Mikayla Hartman scored 20 points to lead the Chargers over the Indians.
W-F led 11-8 after one quarter and 23-19 at halftime, but were outscored 23-17 in the second half.
Amherst 36, W-F 24
AMHERST – The Falcons held the Indians’ two leading scorers – Morgan Wilson and Karissa Akey – to five points each.
Amherst led 7-3 after one quarter, 15-8 at halftime and 25-14 after three quarters.
Hailey Krause led the Indians with seven points, while Amherst’s Hannah Grawey was the only player in the game to score in double figures with 14.
“The key to the game was turnovers and struggling with finishing,” coach Joe Titus said. “We also need to do a better job closing out on defense. They hit some big shots from outside just when we were starting to make a run. Amherst is a good team. We just can’t afford to make that many mistakes against them or give them as many second chances.”
The Indians will host Winnebago Lutheran at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 3.
