Schofield– The SPASH girls basketball team narrowly beat out Wisconsin Valley Conference opponent D.C. Everest on Friday night, winning by the final score of 43-37.
SPASH outscored Everest 24-18 in the first half, while the Evergreens played the Panthers even in the second half.
“We executed our game plan really well and were very deliberate with the ball looking for the perfect shot, and were up five with six minutes to go or so, and just didn’t make shots down the stretch,” said Everest coach Matt Bullis. “We had a great look at a three pointer with under 2:00 to go I think to retake the lead and it went in and out. SPASH made their free throws down the stretch to seal the win.”
SPASH was led by Leah Earnest, who turned in another double-double with 19 points and 12 rebounds.
Everest got 16 points from Alexis Wojnowiak and 11 points from Hanna Stuedemann.
“SPASH is a very talented basketball team and we knew we couldn’t go up and down with them and give ourselves a shot to win,” Bullis said. “So we had to shorten the game into segments and I thought our kids did a great job. A lot of credit goes to our kids, but good teams find a way to win and credit SPASH with doing that down the stretch.”
