Last Tuesday the gals lost a TRC match-up with Caledonia, 50-36, but
rebounded with a 58-55 win over Rushford-Peterson on Friday.
The big story in the Caledonia loss was 28 turnovers and only four
attempts at the free throw line. "We also gave 15 offensive boards,² said
Coach Brian Baum, ³and we ran into foul trouble in the second half."
MaKenzie Miller and Traci McDonald, Chatfield¹s latest version of the twin
towers¹ sat much of the second half, commented Coach Baum. In spite of
that, Miller did finish the night with a double-double, 10 points and 10
rebounds. Brook Irish also had a nice night on the boards, pulling down
eight, along with five points. Kirsten Keefe had seven points, two steals
and three assists. Maddie Talamantes had three buckets for six points.
Candace Gould had five rebounds and a pair of assists.
Individual scoring vs Caledonia: Kirsten Keefe 2-1/2-7, Sidney Irish
1-0-2, Maddie Talamantes 3-0-6, Traci McDonald 2-0-4, Brook Irish 2-1/2-5,
MaKenzie Miller 5-0-10, team 16-2/4-36. Three¹s, 2; Keefe (2).
In the win over R-P, sophomore Kirsten Keefe dished out 12 assists. She
added to her fine floor game with seven steals. Leading the scoring was
senior MaKenzie Miller with 21. Miller hit 10 of 14 field goals and _ at
the line. Maddie Talamantes had a fine shooting night, hitting six of 12
field goals, including 2/4 from long range¹. She was also 50% at the
charity line, _, to finish the night with 15 points. She also had six
rebounds, two steals and two assists.
Camille Rasmussen came off the bench and sparked the Lady Gophers with
three buckets and four rebounds.
The second half included two runs¹; one for Chatfield to get a big
lead, 22-4, and the other by Rushford-Peterson, 25-7, to tie the game at
55-55. A blocked shot by Miller and a free throw by Talamantes clinched the
win for Chatfield.
