Tigers hold on to notch third straight win


VALDERS – The Howards Grove Tigers struggled late but hung on for a 38-35 nonconference girls basketball win over host Valders Tuesday night.

HGHS, which has won three in a row, upped its record to 10-3. The Vikings slipped to 7-4.

Sophomore guard Brittany Schaller hit two free throws at the end of the game which gave HGHS a 38-35 lead and helped seal the win. Valders had outscored the Tigers 9-5 in the fourth quarter before Schaller’s free throws.

The Tigers built a 25-14 halftime lead but were outscored 21-13 in the second half.

Schaller led HGHS in scoring with 14 points, hitting 6-for-11 from the field for 55 percent. Schaller exploded for eight points in the first period to spark her team to a 14-8 lead. Sam Yancy had a team-high five rebounds. Morgan Edge led the Tigers in assists with three and Kaitlynn Near had a team-best three steals.

“Things got a little ugly in the fourth quarter and we made some questionable decisions but found a way to hang on for the win,” said Tiger head coach Heidi Georgeff. “We shot 37 percent from the field which isn’t great but defensively we did a good job staying in front of their cutters and rebounded well overall.

“Kaitlynn did a great job limiting their leading scorer [on the season], Conner Grall, to just six points. Her defense against her was excellent,” said Georgeff.
