Oskaloosa dropped a conference doubleheader to Dallas Center Grimes last night as heard live on KMZN. The games originally scheduled for tonight were moved to Monday due to Tuesday’s expected Winter weather. The Oskaloosa girls hung tight with D-C-G through the first eight minutes trailing just 12-10 after one quarter, but from there turnovers cost the Indians as they committed 29 total and were held to just eight points the rest of the way as D-C-G cruised to a 65-18 win. Alexis Westercamp led Oskaloosa with eight points and Leah Van Maanen added six as Osky fell to 2-14 this season and 0-8 in conference play.
The boys game saw Oskaloosa playing catch up from the opening tip as D-C-G jumped out to a 14-0 lead thanks to red hot long range shooting and despite a late Osky charge the Mustangs got a 70-49 win. Osky closed the gap to eight points late third quarter and early fourth quarter but couldn’t finish the charge as D-C-G pulled away for the 21 point win. Not known for their long range shooting, D-C-G drained 9 three pointers in the first half led by Doug Heritage who hit seven of those and finished with 32 points to lead all scorers. Osky was led by Jack Moore with 12 points, Spencer Tucker contributed nine and Austin Fagen-Scholes and Jared Kruse each added eight points as Osky fell to 6-10 on the season and 1-8 in LHC play.
