EM girls pummel Plum City

It was a quiet week for the Elk Mound girls as they played just one game due to a couple of weather related postponements. They did manage to come up with a big win at home against Plum City, 59-30 January 31, however. The Mounders have three games scheduled this week starting Monday at home against Stanley-Boyd, a double header with the boys’ team at Spring Valley for a make up Tuesday, and a Thursday game at home (also a make up) against McDonell Central.

Sara Winchester came up with nine of the Mounder’s 15 first quarter points against Plum City and added five more in the second stanza as they held a 29-10 halftime lead. Danae Sternecker scored eight of her nine points in the game in the third stanza and Winchester and Mattie Pitts both canned a triple to help the Mounders extend their lead to 30 points at 48-18 heading into the final quarter, then Waive Melgaard added six of their 11 fourth quarter points to finish off the game. The Mounders’ defense held the conference’s leading scorer, Cheyanne Caturia who averages 14 points a game, to nary a point all night.

“I think this was one of our most complete efforts of the season,” Mounder coach Jordan Kongshaug said. “We did a great job on the defensive end and did a better job getting out in transition. It was a good win for us.”

Winchester led the Mounders with 17 points including three treys while Elizabeth Fasbender added 10 points.
