The Eden Valley-Watkins girls’ basketball team smothered the visiting Benson Braves Tuesday, Dec. 10, by a commanding 48-14 final. Eagles’ senior forward Dani Nelson scored 17 points to lead the Eagles to the easy non-conference win over a struggling Braves club, who are still seeking their first win of the year. After an overwhelming 31-point halftime advantage, EV-W added just a dozen more in the second half and cruised to the finish line.
Scoring: Senior forward Dani Nelson, 17; junior forward Greta Stommes, 8; junior guard Mikayla Kummet, 5; senior guard Jamie Scherer, junior guard Mindy Forcier, junior guard Brook Stang, 3 each; freshman guard Breanna Stang, junior forward Bella Cromwell, 2 each. Next on the schedule, the Eagles play at Maple Lake Tuesday, Dec. 17, and at Kimball Friday, Dec. 20.
