The Falcons picked up their first EWC in the process to move to 1-3 (2-5 overall), while New Holstein slipped to 0-4 in the EWC.

“We had a long team talk at halftime,” said Falcons’ head coach Leroy Hamilton. “We went to a 2-3 zone, which created some Huskies turnovers that gave offensive points.”

New Holstein busted out to a 13-4 first quarter lead, as the Falcons offense couldn’t get in gear.

Falls sophomore Becky Raeder drove in for a lay-up and senior Erin Beeck nailed a shot at the buzzer from 15 feet to cut the New Holstein lead to 21-15 at the halftime break.

New Holstein’s Tori Zipperer had 10 first-half points and her offensive production continued into the third quarter, as she hit a jumper to extend the Huskies’ lead to 23-15.

Falls then went on a 7-0 run to pull within 23-22 at the 5:27 mark of the third period.

After a Raeder lay-up, sophomore Kim Schwobe connected for two more and then senior Karlie Beeck hit a 3-point shot that gave the Falcons what they needed.

New Holstein’s Zipperer got hot by hitting three consecutive baskets to push the Huskies’ lead to 29-22.

Falls’ Karlie Beeck equaled Zipper with back-to-back 3-pointers and junior Nicole Preder grabbed a huge rebound and reeled off eight straight points to give the Falcons a 30-29 advantage for the first time in the game.

New Holstein’s Zipperer then made a free throw to retie the game by the end of the third.

The fourth quarter got off to a slow start, after both teams traded free throws.

Emily Casper’s basket gave the Huskies a 34-32 lead.

Schwobe’s jumper then tied the game at 34-34 and DePagter’s layup gave Falls the lead for good.

DePagter went 4-for-4 from the free throw line to secure the win for the Falcons.

“Some of the girls really stepped it up in the second half,” Hamilton remarked. “During the holiday break, we’ll work on the fundamentals and hopefully turn our season around.”

Karlie Beeck led the Falcons with nine points, while DePagter and Van Engen had eight points each.

Zipperer scored a game-high 19 points to lead New Holstein.

The Sheboygan Falls junior varsity squad also played well to post its first EWC win of the season with a 47-24 drubbing of New Holstein.
