No. 8 Central too much for SW

By Becky Walz,

The South Winn girls’ basketball team (3-9, 3-6 UIC) went ice cold Tuesday night in Elkader, scoring just nine points in the game while falling to Class 1A No. 8 Central Elkader (11-0, 7-0 UIC), 49-9.
The Warriors went without a point in the first quarter, with Central leading 18-0. Josie Hemesath stopped the bleeding early in the second with a basket, but that is all SW would get as the visiting Warriors trailed 35-2 at halftime. A pair of free throws in the third period would be all South Winn would put up as Central continued to pull away, 54-4, with eight minutes to play. A trey by Aubrey Willey and a bucket by Allison Hageman would wrap up the scoring for South Winn in the fourth.
“Offensively this was a tough night. In the second half we moved the ball a lot better and got some better looks. Defensively we played with good energy, and we cranked up the intensity in the second half as well,” said Coach Justin Izer.
South Winn looks to avenge a loss from early in the season as the Warriors host Turkey Valley Friday, Jan. 13, at 6:15 p.m.
