Penguins ice Wild Rose, 65-25
Despite getting out to an early lead, Wild Rose was forced to play catch up during the Dec. 15 Central Wisconsin Conference-South girls basketball game against Tri-County on Dec. 15. Despite the strong effort coming from the hosts, the Penguins were able to head home with the 65-25 win.
“Hats off to Tri-County,” said Wild Rose Head Coach Jeff Murphy. “That’s the level of basketball that we’ll continue to grow and strive for. We’ll continue to work hard and get better every day.”
The opening tipoff went to Tri-County, but it was Wild Rose who would score first on a basket by Addy Lauritzen. The visitors would answer back in a big way, taking the 16-6 lead. The hosts worked hard all game, but couldn’t score as the Penguins kept coming up with steals and raced to the other end of the court to capitalize on their turnovers.
Wild Rose would sneak in a score once in a while, with Rachael Strey scoring 4 points and 2 points from Anna Caswell, but it wouldn’t be enough as they headed to the locker room with a 39-8 deficit.
