BOYCEVILLE — The Boyceville ladies basketball team broke its three-game losing streak with a well-earned home win over Elmwood/Plum City January 22.
A determined bunch of Bulldogs jumped to a 26-14 halftime lead and then held the charging Wolves at bay in the second half to capture a 52-46 win, Boyceville’s first since it beat Spring Valley on January 8.
The Lady Bulldogs, who followed it with an impressive 49-30 win in Glenwood City last Friday, now sit alone in fourth place in the Dunn-St. Croix 5-5 record and are 8-8 overall.
“After getting a fast start offensively against Elmwood/Plum City, we had a sluggish start to the second half which made for a battle down the stretch,” said head coach Jolene Bird.
Emma Ouellette led the Bulldogs with a 2018-19 season high of 16 points. Ouellette hit the nets for seven doubles and sank two-of-four foul shots.
Junior Rachel Prestrud was a shining star for the Lady Bulldogs, with 15 points to end her evening. Prestrud scored five doubles, netted a lone trey, and was two-of-four from the charity stripe.
With two halves at 26 points a piece, Boyceville held just enough of a lead to keep the win despite the Wolves putting up a 32 point second half.
After weeks of single digit points, Kady Grambow was able to sink ten points, all in the second half, for Boyceville, which is something that has been a continued struggle for the sophomore. Grambow netted three triples, a double and a set of foul shots.
“Kady had a big four minute stretch offensively for us to help seal the win in the end,” Bird stated.
Adding to the Bulldogs points were Ana Evenson with eight points and Mya Lagerstrom hit a double for two and Megan Hintzman sank a solo foul shot.
Boyceville hosted Cumberland last evening, Tuesday, and will host the Mondovi Buffaloes this Thursday, January 31 following the boys’ game with Mondovi. Second-place Durand will be in the Dog House next Tuesday, February 5.
