The Washington Demons continued their winning streak with a road win over Burlington last night. The Demons 59-49, but it was actually closer than that. Demon Head Coach Phil Long says they played strong defense in the first half holding Burlington to 12 points and it was 24-12 at halftime. He says in the fourth quarter they gave Burlington several three point play opportunities by fouling while trying to defend. They were able to pull within three, but the Demons were strong from the free throw line down the stretch and got the 10-point win. For the Demons:
Sydney Greiner 28
Lauren Vittetoe 11
Jenna Krebs 7
Cassie Holland 7
Long feels this was a good test for them getting ready for a big conference matchup Friday against Keokuk here in Washington. The win is the Demons’ seventh straight as they improve to 13-3.
