Skins Take Third With Victory Over Staunton

Posted

The Nokomis Lady Redskins traveled to Litchfield for the final time this week to end the tournament with the third place game. They played the Lady Bulldogs of Staunton on Saturday, Nov. 30. 

The Lady Redskins decided to stay in their “new to them” man-to-man defense to change things up. Staunton won the tip and the battle between the Dogs and Skins began. 

The Bulldogs took the lead early due to turnovers on the Lady Redskins' offensive side. The Skins eventually got it back together, but still trailed the Dogs 20-21 at the half. 

After halftime, the Skins decided to flip a switch and take a 12-point lead thanks to both offensive and defensive rebounds, as well stepped-up defense. The Bulldogs couldn’t close the gap and were defeated by the Redskins 39-28. 

Hailey Engelman added two points, while Addison Dangbar added four points herself. Mia Fesser put in nine points, while Audrey Sabol added ten points and nine rebounds. Macee Eisenbarth led the team with 14 points and 13 rebounds and was named to the all-tournament team.

Now 2-3 on the season, Nokomis will face a tough Greenville squad on their home court on Monday, Dec. 2.
