The Washington Demons had the Mid-Prairie Golden Hawks in town for a boy-girl doubleheader last night and they ended up splitting. In the girls game, Washington was without their leading scorer Sydney Greiner who was home with the flu, and so they had senior Jena Krebs and junior Lauren Vittetoe score in double figures to get the win 47-38. Jena Krebs had a career high 14 points and Lauren Vittetoe ended up with 10 including a couple of three pointers. Seniors Marissa Gaal, Cassie Holland, and Jena Krebs were recognized as part of senior night. The Demon girls improve to 2-0 and will host Williamsburg tomorrow. Williamsburg beat Dyersville Beckman last night 56-18. Mid-Prairie falls to 1-1 and plays Wilton on Friday.
In the boys game, Mid-Prairie was feeling shooting very strong in the first half to get a lopsided win 64-45. In the first half Christian Swartzendruber hit four three’s and Michael Aldeman hit three. Aldeman would end up with 26, after scoring that many against Williamsburg the night before. Swartzendruber ended up with 20. Demon Head Coach Bryce Smeins said the Golden Hawks shot well, but he was not pleased with his team’s defense and the way they executed their offense in trying to deal with Mid-Prairie’s press. Washington had Anthony Ossman pick up three quick fouls and had to sit much of the first half. Brock Kimball led the Demons with 13 points and Jordan Geir had 11 with three three pointers. Mid-Prairie is now 2-0 and will travel to West Branch on Tuesday. The Demons start the season 0-1 and will host Durant on Friday.
