ELK MOUND — The Elk Mound girls’ basketball team saw its first win of the season over a tough Crickets team in a non-conference match up.
After starting out with six unanswered points the Mounders ended up falling behind in the first period, but the Mounders found a way to band together and take the win 66-49 last Thursday evening, November 15.
The Mounders’ captain, Morgan Radtke, started the evening off for Elk Mound with three back to back field goals to start the game and making the lead 6-0, but several fouls on Elk Mound gave the Crickets the boost they needed to make it a tie game.
Radtke was five of seven from the line and put up ten field goal shots against Fall Creek, beginning her senior season with 25 points.
After falling behind in the first quarter the Mounders took the first of their time outs down 14-17. A quick pep talk from head coach Kongshaug set the girls back on track to finish the first period with the lead 32-24 over the Crickets.
The Mounders were plagued by fouls during last Thursday evenings game seeing ten each period and 25 overall.
Sisters Brook and Alana Plaszcz finished the night with 15 points between the pair, Brook put up two three-point shots during the second period and Alana tacked on one of her own.
Sophie Cedarblade led the Mounders in terms of three-point shots after getting clear of the point guards for three of the Mounders’ eight.
Elk Mound had a five day rest period before heading back to the court last evening, November 20, against the Bloomer Blackhawks in their second non-conference game of the season.
