The Glenwood City and Boyceville girls’ basketball teams hit the court twice this past week which included a battle with each other.
Before the rivals tangled last Friday, both squad had to deal with other Dunn-St. Croix foes in Tuesday match-ups.
The Toppers hosted the league co-leading Durand Panthers in a December 4 contest and fell hard 67-29. Meanwhile, the Bulldogs traveled to Plum City for a contest with the Wolves of Elmwood/Plum City which resulted in a 54-33 Bulldogs’ win.
The Bulldogs and Hilltoppers then clashed in Boyceville for the first of their regular season, with home-and-home series last Friday evening, December 7. In a back-and-forth battle, Glenwood City emerged the victory after a hard fought 46-43 battle.
Boyceville, 1-2 and 3-3, will hit the hardwood again for two road trips, the first to Mondovi on December 13 in their third conference game of the season and December 18 the Bulldogs will face off against the Warriors in a non-conference match up in Clear Lake.
Glenwood City, 2-1 and 3-3, will play host to the D-SC’s other co-leader the Colfax Vikings on Thursday, December 13 before breaking for Christmas.
Glenwood City vs. Boyceville
The Bulldogs hosted the Lady Toppers last Friday evening, December 7, in the first of two meetings of the 2018-19 season.
The Hilltoppers and Bulldogs fought a tough game with Glenwood City coming out on top by a score of 46-43.
“My seniors stepped it up,” said Glenwood City head coach Dean Fayerweather. “Senior Delaney Quinn had a season high for points.”
Delaney Quinn, who put up 19 points against Boyceville, took control of the Toppers offense and seemly willed them to a victory.
Quinn scored 12 of her 19 points in the final five minutes of the game, she hit a three-pointer to make it 41-37 and then sunk four consecutive free throws to pull the Toppers even at 41-41 with 3:27 to play. Then with a minute and a half left of play Quinn swished another three to give the toppers a 44-41 lead.
Leading the Lady Bulldogs was Tyra Kostman with five doubles and a single shot from the foul line, ending her night with 11 points total.
“I was worried coming out after the half as I respect Jolene and how she gets her team prepared,” coach Fayerweather said. “I knew we would have to battle harder the second half to get a win.”
Glenwood City struggled with turnovers and getting its offense on track through the first 10 minutes of the second half which opened the door for the Bulldogs. Boyceville pulled to within a point, 26-27, with 12:58 left to play off of a Rachel Prestrud field goal.
Kady Grambow was the only player to hit the net from the three-point range for Boyceville, as she sunk a pair of treys in last Friday evenings game as well as a single double. Grambow came up with a steal and scored just before the game ended for the final score of 46-43. This was the first bucket for the Bulldogs since the 4:46 mark in the second half.
Bulldogs junior player Ana Evenson added nine more points to her varsity career giving her 19 in the limited minutes she’s played thus far for Boyceville. Evenson put up four doubles and was one-of-one from the foul line.
Evenson sank a four-foot shot and Kady Grambow followed 24 seconds later with a three-point basket from the corner to make it 37-32 in the Bulldogs favor. Glenwood City made a basket but Rachel Prestrud and Emma Ouellette made consecutive lay ups to push the Boyceville lead to seven points, 41-34, at 4:46.
“Our girls kept their poise and pulled it out in the end,” commented coach Fayerweather.
Adding to the Toppers points were Makiah Schutz with 12, Alexys Curvello tacked on six, Hannah Strehlo contributed five and Delanie Fayerweather added on four more.
Delanie Fayerweather hit two final free throws to push the Toppers lead to 46-41 with 27.4 left in the second half.
The Bulldogs score was helped out by Rachel Prestrud with five points, Emma Ouellette and Alyx Bloom each added on six.
