Tigers dominate after slow start


FREDONIA – Howards Grove outscored Ozaukee 14-2 in the second quarter to key a 59-37 thumping of the host Warriors in girls basketball play Thursday night.

The Tigers trailed 18-13 after one quarter and then dominated the rest of the game – outscoring Ozaukee 46-19 over the final three periods.

HGHS, a winner of three in a row, improved to 3-0 in the Central Lakeshore Conference (3-1 overall). The Warriors dropped 0-2 in the CLC (1-3 overall).

Sophomore forward Sam Yancy led a balanced Tiger attack with 16 points. Brittany Schaller and Morgan Edge contributed 14 and 12, respectively.

Yancy pulled down a team-high nine rebounds and Addi Gerber had six. Schaller led in steals with an impressive six. Sarah Lillesand had a team-best four assists and Schaller, three.

“The team played well after a rough first quarter. We had a lot of different kids step up and play well,” said Tiger head coach Heidi Georgeff.

“Morgan Edge [senior point guard] had her best game of the season. She took the ball to the basket strong and ran the show for us out there. She played a great game.

“We shot well from the freethrow line and our overall fieldgoal percentage was pretty good. Sam Yancy continues to rebound very strong and give us some consistent scoring inside. Addi Gerber played great off the bench,” said Georgeff.

Gerber scored eight points and was 4-for-4 at the foul line.

The Tigers were 20-for-26 at the foul line for 77 percent and shot 49 percent from the field at 18-for-37.
