The Wolves upped their Big East Conference record to 2-0 (3-0 overall). The Resorters slipped to 1-1 in the BEC (2-2 overall).

Hilbert used a 10-2 run to close out the first half which gave it a 33-19 halftime lead. Danielle Leffler tallied six points on a three-ball and a three-point play to key the spurt. Gehl’s three-pointer climaxed the run.

“Hilbert’s 10-2 run to end the half was the difference and they had the momentum going into halftime,” said Resorter head coach Donny Kulow.

The Resorters sank only 1 of 12 three-point shots and hit just 27- percent overall from the floor.

Hilbert was red-hot from three-point range at 6-for-9.

Senior forward Rachael Flora paced the Resorters in scoring with 12 points. Flora, Emma Feldmann and Sonia Schubert were the team’s top rebounders with five each.

Camrie Schmitz and Emma Feldmann led Elkhart in assists with two apiece. Claire Feldmann had a team-best three steals. Emma Feldmann led in blocked shots with two.

Gehl led the Wolves in rebounding with 11.

“Defensively we could have played better,. We didn’t get out on their shooters at times and they hit their shots,” said Kulow.

“Hilbert played a good game on both ends. We played better on defense in the second half – holding them to 19 points after scoring 33 in the first half.

“The younger players received valuable minutes against a good team, so that should help us in the future,” added the coach.
