ELK MOUND — The Mounder Ladies hosted the Spring Valley Cardinals last Friday evening, January 25, in what would be a one-sided contest.
The Mounders widened the gap by 31 points by game’s end for a 70-39 victory.
With the win, the Mounders now sit with a overall record of 12-4 and 7-3 in the Dunn-St. Croix giving them a comfortable two-game lead over Boyceville for third place in the conference standings.
The Mounders and Cardinals both got off to a slow start here last Friday evening with missed shots and turnovers plaguing the first three minutes of play.
Erin Stans of Spring Valley was sent to the line and put up a single foul shot to give the lead to the Cardinals 1-0, but Hailey Blaskowski hit a two-point basket that ushered in a 15-0 Elk Mound scoring run and a lead that continued to grow throughout the remainder of the evening.
Blaskowski finished her court time with a pair of doubles.
Morgan Radtke had a strong showing for the Mounders despite her three fouls in the first half of the game against the Cardinals. Radtke finished with 23 points to led all scorers.
The first half came to a close as Sophie Cedarblade sank the second of three triples at the buzzer and upped the Mounders’ halftime lead to 33-8. Cedarblade finished the evening with three triples and a pair of fouls for Elk Mound.
Sisters Brook and Alana Plaszcz had a successful evening with 19 points between the pair. Brook had four doubles and was two-of-four from the line while Alana hit a double, a pair of threes, and was one-of-two from the line. Alana exited the game at halftime after tweaking her ankle according to coach Kongshaug.
The Mounders continued the domination over the Cardinals for the entirety of the contest, along with calling several time outs in the second half before ending with a score of 70-39. To date this is Elk Mound’s second highest score in a game this season with the first coming against Elmwood/Plum City.
Adding to the Mounders point total were Sydney Simpson with three doubles and a pair of foul shots, Kayla Bridges contributed a double and was three-of-eight from the line, and Taya Schaefer put up a lone two points in her six minutes of play when Elk Mound pulled Morgan Radtke from the game.
