Playing a stifling defense while at the same time being able to put points on the board translated into a fairly easy Four Rivers Conference win Friday night for the Varsity Lady Bearcats.
Hermann Head Coach Todd Anderson saw three of his players score in double figures to claim the 66-36 win over the Owensville Dutchgirls.
The victory pushes Hermann’s season mark to 18-3 with four regular-season games remaining.
Junior guard Allison Stiers paced the Lady ‘Cats, scoring 19 points, including 3 of the team’s 10 3-pointers on the night.
Sophomore center Quincy Erickson notched 15 points — including 3 3-pointers of her own — and junior forward Emma Godat registered 11 points.
The girls’ game was part of a Varsity boys’-girls’ doubleheader against Owensville.
On Thursday night, the JV Bearcats and Lady Bearcats visited Owensville.
Other Varsity Lady Bearcats joining in the scoring were senior forward Brooke Grosse with 8, junior guard Caraline Brune with 5, sophomore forward Megan Schneider with 4 and junior forward Allison Williman and sopohomore center Elly Krueger with 2 points each.
Notable stats for the Lady Bearcats contained in the blowout game: Hermann went 8-for-8 at the free-throw line and committed only 5 turnovers on the night. Erickson had 2 blocks and she and Stiers each pulled down a team-high 6 rebounds.
Stiers and Erickson also each had 4 assists in the game.
The Lady ‘Cats’ Monday night played in Pacific and were scheduled to be home Friday night against Union. That contest will be another boys-girls doubleheader but will include the JV teams, as well.
JV ladies prevail
In the Thursday night JV Lady ‘Cats’ contest with the Dutchgirls, Macie Witthaus and Allison Williman paced Hermann with 9 points each. Witthaus posed a 7-for-7 night at the free-throw line in the 49-34 win over the Dutchgirls.
JV Head Coach Andy Emmons also saw balanced scoring throughout his lineup: Grace Winkelmann and Hannah Grosse each had 8 points; Korinna Bickmeyer scored 7 points; Elly Krueger registered 6 points; and Kaylyn Powers added 2 points.
This week the JV ladies’ team is scheduled to take part in the Pacific JV Girls Tournament.
