BALDWIN — The first outing of the season for the Boyceville girls’ basketball team was a non-conference road tip off against the Baldwin-Woodville Blackhawks last Thursday, November 21.
Unfortunately, the Lady Bulldogs didn’t fare well against the bigger school as they lost 40-29.
Boyceville head coach Jolene Bird summed up the night as frustrating. She said that her team was out rebounded significantly in the first half but did better in the second.
Boyceville’s offense also struggled and they couldn’t seem to get things going until midway through the second half. Not helping the Lady Dawgs’ offensive situation was senior Emma Ouellette as she spent many minutes sitting on the bench in foul trouble.
Bird concluded, “It was obviously a first game for us as well as the officiating crew. Room for improvement by all.”
Tyra Kostman led the Bulldogs with eight points followed by Megan Hintzman with seven. Hintzman also pulled down four rebounds. Kady Grambow led the team in rebounds with eight. Naomi Hillman was a spark on the defense with four steals and four rebounds.
Boyceville was outscored 21-10 in the first half and never were able to recover, despite an improved, second-half offensive effort that saw the Bulldogs and Blackhawks each finish with 19 points.
The Bulldogs (0-1) played their first home game when they hosted Turtle Lake on Monday, November 25. Then after a week off, Boyceville will return to action in Alma on Tuesday, December 3 against the Eagles of Pepin/Alma before hosting its home and conference season opener on Thursday, December 5 when Elmwood/Plum City comes to town.
