Elk Mound girls blast Boyceville

The Elk Mound girls used a 20 point second quarter to pull ahead of the Boyceville Bulldogs and won another conference game 49-31 in the Doghouse Jan. 27.

Down 8-6 after the first quarter, the Mounders got a wake up call and saw five players contribute in the scoring column as Elizabeth Fasbender connected from all areas including two points from the foul line then hitting a deuce and a triple. McKenna McVey added five points on two buckets and a free toss, Allie Weber and Sarah Winchester both drained a triple and Riley Radtke scored from close range. Using their full court pressing defense, the Mounders held Boyceville to nine points and took a 26-17 halftime lead.

McVey pounded the paint for four baskets in the third to help the Mounders up the lead to 13 points at 37-24 and they outscored the Bulldogs 12-7 in the final stanza to finish with the 18 point win.

“I thought we were very good on the defensive end which allowed us to get going on the offensive end,” coach Jordan Kongshaug said. “It was a good road win for us.”

McVey led all scorers with 18 points while Fasbender and Winchester both finished in double figures with 10 each. The Mounders  struggled from the free throw line, hitting 10 of 22 attempts while Boyceville was eight of 12.
