EV-W basketball girls smother Rockets

The Eden Valley-Watkins’ senior center Courtney Dilley led the onslaught Thursday night, 
Jan. 10, at Rockford, with an 18-point effort, as the Eagles routed the Rockets, 70-44. Improving to a 7-4 overall record, the Lady Eagles remain undefeated in the conference, at 5-0.  Coach Tom Jansen saw the win as a real team effort. 

“We had quite a bit of foul trouble, and I thought the difference in the game was our bench. We had 24 points from players off the bench, which was a huge boost and helped us to the victory.” The scoring summary: senior guard Holly Schumacher, 13; sophomore guard Brook Stang, 9; junior forward Dani Nelson, 8; sophomore forward Bella Cromwell, and sophomore center Maria Holdvogt,
6 each; senior guard Missy Kummet, 4; sophomore guard Mikayla Kummet, sophomore guard Mindy Forcier, and sophomore forward Greta Stommes, 2 each.

The Eagles rolled to a 13-point lead at the break, and matched that effort in the second stanza, culminating in the winning cushion of 26. The Lady Eagles travel to Holdingford on Tuesday, Jan. 15, before opening up a 3-game home stint, hosting Maple Lake on Friday, Jan. 18.
