Huge third quarter sparks Tigers to victory

VALDERS – The Howards Grove Tigers outscored host Valders 19-5 in the third quarter to fuel a 49-31 girls basketball win Tuesday night.

The Tigers drained four three-point goals in the third period – two by Payton

Bramstedt and one each from Morgan Edge and Courtney Milz – as they built a 39-22 lead going into the fourth.

Howards improved to 13-7 while the Vikings fell to 2-17.

Sophomore guard Morgan edge led a balanced Tiger offense with 12 points, including a 6-for-6 effort at the free-throw line. Hayley Rickmeier had a teamhigh four steals and eight rebounds.

Cassie Marver paced Howards in assists with three and had three steals.

The Tigers hit only 28 percent from the field but shot well at the foul line with 20- for-26 (77 percent).

“I thought Cassie Marver played excellent on both sides of the ball. She held the leading scorer of the Olympian Conference [Danelle Buck] to nine points. She also attacked the basket strong and was 7-for-8 from the free-throw line,” said Tiger head coach Heidi Georgeff.

“Hayley Rickmeier also had nine points and eight rebounds despite being double- and triple- teamed at times. She stayed composed and kept fighting.

“I thought we got good contribution off the bench from Morgan Edge and Erin Valenstein. Erin played good defense and rebounded well,” said Georgeff.
