HGHS, which trailed 9-4 after one quarter, took a 17-11 halftime lead. Brittany Schaller and Sam Yancy tallied four points each to lead the Tigers’ offense in the second period.

The victory keeps the Tigers’ hopes alive for a share of the Central Lakeshore Conference title. HGHS finished 12-2 in the CLC and ended the regular season at 15-7.

The Tigers are one-half game behind first-place Sheboygan Christian which is 12-1. The Eagles need a win over Random Lake Friday night to clinch the outright championship. A loss by Christian would give HGHS a share of the crown with the Eagles.

Yancy, a sophomore forward, had a double-double with a team-high 11 points and 10 rebounds. Schaller contributed 10 points. Schaller led in assists with four and steals, three.

“Not a stellar shooting night but our defense was good enough to create some transition points,” said Tiger head coach Heidi Georgeff.

“Defensively, we mixed it up and played three different defenses throughout the game – one to control tempo, one to create opportunities and then our half-court man which is our bread-and-butter. I think that ability to do different things defensively was the key to winning the game.

“Brittany had a nice overall game. Sam had six offensive rebounds which gave us some much needed second chances to put the ball in the hoop. They really hounded her all night but she played tough, hung in there and found ways to score and get rebounds,” said Georgeff.

“As a team we committed only six turnovers. We took care of the ball well and had nice patience against their zone.”

Julia Splittgerber led the Crusaders in scoring with 14. Lutheran dropped to 5-8 in the CLC (11-10 overall).
