Slow start hurts Resorters in road defeat

ROSENDALE – The Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah Resorters fell behind 17-6 after one quarter and it was an uphill battle the rest of the way as they fell to host Laconia, 62-42, in nonconference girls basketball action Friday night.

Elkhart dropped to 2-5 while the Spartans improved to 5-3. The Resorters shot only 39 percent from the field and were plagued by 27 turnovers.

“Turnovers, transition and rebounding were the difference,” said Resorter head coach Donny Kulow whose team was outrebounded 25-20.

“We did do some nice things in the game and at times played very well. We just have not put a complete game together yet this year. Once we get all the players on the same page, both offensively and defensively, we can make some noise.

“It was nice to play someone outside our area. They played physical and pressured us. It was a good experience for our team and will help us down the road,” said Kulow.

Emma Feldmann led Elkhart in scoring with nine points and rebounds, nine. Emily Holzmann and Kelly Theel had a team-high three steals each. Ashley Pfeifer led in assists with five.

Haley Smith paced the Spartans’ balanced attack with 14 points.
