The Tigers raised their BEC record to 6-1 (9-2 overall) and stayed in a second-place tie in the league with Oostburg. Sheboygan Christian leads the BEC at 6-0. Reedsville slipped to 5-2 in the conference (8-2 overall).

Balanced scoring and stellar defense and rebounding sparked the Tigers. HGHS had three players who scored in double figures, led by junior guard Brittany Schaller with 20 points. Olivia Stauss and Addi Gerber added 13 each. Five Tigers scored at least eight points.

HGHS turned the game into a rout with a 34-17 scoring edge in the second half, spearheaded by Schaller’s 14 points.

Junior forward Sam Yancy keyed the HGHS rebounding with 14, including seven on offense. Gerber pulled down 10 boards, with six offensive. The Tigers had an impressive 15 offensive rebounds.

HGHS held the potent Reedsville offense to its season-low point total.

“This was a huge win for us. We wanted to win this game on defense and we worked hard this week on improving some of the little things we haven’t been doing so well defensively,” said Ti- ger head coach Heidi Georgeff.

“We shot a good percentage [49 percent] from the field and I thought we did a good job of attacking their zone. We outrebounded them 35-17 which was a key in this game because they are a great rebounding team.”

Junior guard Ashley Reinemann’s defense limited Faith Lubner, Reedsville’s top scorer this season, to only eight points. Lubner is averaging 16 points per game.

“While working tirelessly on limiting Lubner she also managed to chip in four rebounds and four assists,” said Georgeff.

“Offensively, it was a total team effort.”

Stauss led the Tigers in steals with six. Schaller dished out a team-high seven assists, followed by Stauss with five.

Brenna Kiekhaefer paced the Panthers in scoring with 15.
