First the Lady Bulldogs took state ranked Dakota down to the wire in a loss on Tuesday and then had another fine effort in a win over Chippewa Valley on Friday.
Dakota 50, Romeo 49:
Feb. 5, at Romeo, Kylie Townsley, hit a 3-pointer with eight seconds to play to give 10th ranked Dakota (13-3, 6-3) the win.
"I couldn't be any prouder of my team,'' said Romeo Coach Connie Hernden. "We came in with a great game plan and they executed it to perfection. We finally played a complete game from beginning to end and hopefully this continues as we head in to our final games and districts."
Guard Lindsey Hernden (the coach's daughter) finished with a game-high 25 points to go along with four assists and five steals. Rachael Boeve followed with five points for the Lady Bulldogs. Andrea Madden, Morgan Gardner and Chelsea Malburg had four points each, Lauren Bright was next with three and Briana Becker and Kylie Resner had two apiece for Romeo which fell to 9-7 overall, and 2-6 in the MAC Red.
"We did everything we could with the exception of making free throws,'' said Hernden, whose team was 9-of-25 at the free throw line. "You just can't miss free throws in a close game. Dakota is a great team with a ton of weapons and they fought to the end and made a clutch 3-point shot. We got the ball down the floor and had a great look at the basket, but the shot didn't fall."
Romeo 50, Chippewa Valley 43:
Friday, Feb. 8, at Chippewa, Hernden (16 points, four assists and five steals) Boeve (seven points and five rebounds) led the way in a Red Division win over the Big Reds.
Jodie Bosheers and Bright had six points each. Resner added four points. Becker and Malburg had three each; Madden and Gardner had two apiece and Ariana Compo had one point for Romeo which led 11-9 after one quarter, 32-25 at the half and 44-33 heading into the fourth quarter.
"It was another complete game where we came out and scored in double digits in all four quarters,'' said Hernden. "We got contributions from the whole team. We played good defense and rebounded well enough to not allow them too many second chance opportunities. The best thing is we limited our turnovers to seven. That's just the second time this year we have been in single digits on turnovers. I thought Rachael Boeve had her best game of the season. She is really starting to come around and make plays for us on both ends of the court. Jodie Bosheers also had a great game, she made some key shots and plays. The challenge is for the team to play strong the rest of the way out and head into districts on a high note. Anything can happen in the state tournament."
