SHELDON – A sluggish start on Friday night would once again put Emmetsburg’s Lady E’Hawks behind the eight-ball in a 47-31 loss to Sheldon. The setback dropped Coach John Kennedy’s ball club to a mark of 1-5 in Lakes Conference play and 4-5 overall.
Sheldon came out pressing from the opening tipoff, but Emmetsburg seemed to be able to work with the pressure, but simply couldn’t get any decent shot opportunities in the first few minutes of the game. The host Orabs would go on to take an 11-7 lead at the end of the quarter, as Emmetsburg was working hard to make things happen.
In the second quarter, the Lady E’Hawks began chipping away at Sheldon’s advantage in the contest, and tied the game at 18-18 with just over 2:00 to go in the half. Emmetsburg was able to get their offense to work like they wanted, and on the other end of the court, the defense was making some stops and bothering Sheldon enough to throw off their shooting.
However, Sheldon would manage to post a 22-18 lead at the break.
The third quarter was not kind to Emmetsburg, as the offense when colder than the outdoors, scoring just four points in the stanza, while Sheldon tacked on 12 points of their own for a 34-22 lead.
In the final stanza, the two teams traded buckets, but Emmetsburg was unable to catch back up or cut into the Orabs’ advantage as Sheldon would take the 47-31 final margin of victory.
For Emmetsburg, Tiffany Wollum and Molly Clasing both had nine points on the night, all of them coming from three-point field goals. Mollie Smith added five points to the effort, while Maddison Woodruff tallied four points. Bailee Moore and Kayla Herbers rounded out the scoring for the Lady E’Hawks with two points each.
