The Lone Tree girls got the win over IMS last night after losing their own home game earlier in the year.
IMS was without their leading scorer Olivia Yutzy as she twisted her ankle in the morning shoot around.
In the first quarter, both teams got some good offensive production, as IMS drove into the paint with Riley Schmider and Lone Tree worked the ball around to make the score 17-12 after one.
Everything slowed down on both ends after that though as they halftime score was 24-16.
Into the second half Lone Tree’s offense made some shots, but the IMS offense tried to make a push as IMS’s Kristen Davis nailed a couple of 3’s to make the score 32-26 after three quarters, but it wasn’t enough and Lone Tree got the win 47-34.
Lone Tree was led by Madelyn Flmr and Ella Feldman with 12 points, while IMS was led by Schmeider with 11.
Lone Tree head coach Travis Pierson talked after the game about his team’s game plan and how they executed.
“We wanted to make sure that Davis was frustrated and we took care of that tonight,” Pierson said. “Maddie Flmr had a ton of boards herself, with 16, and we just did exactly what we wanted to do, our shots didn’t fall as much as we hoped, especially the easy ones, but as a team we did everything that we were expected to do and what we focused on this week to accomplish.”
Lone Tree plays Wapello next, while IMS hosts WACO.
