Friday night saw a conference double header between Sigourney and English Valleys. The girls game featured a battle of the unbeatens as the Savages rolled into North English with a 1-0 record to face the 2-0 Bears. The opposite was true in the boys game as the 0-1 Savages faced the 0-2 Bears, both teams looking to pick up their first win.
In the girls game, English Valleys started off hot. Madison Trimpe was the go-to girl as she scored the team’s first 8 points. She would finish with 11. The score was tied after the first quarter. The beginning of the 2nd quarter saw the Savages start to pull away. Sigourney used speed, defense, and a couple Brooke Waechter buckets to outscore the Bears 18-7 in the second quarter, making the halftime score 28-17. The second half featured more of the same as Sigourney continued to press English Valleys, eventually winning the game 56-31. The offensive leaders for Sigourney were Brooke Waechter with 18 points, and Autumn Barthelman with 15 points.
As mentioned previously, the second game pitted two teams without a win against each other. It was obvious early on that the Sigourney Savage boys were hungry to put one in the “W” column, as they came out on fire. They outscored English Valleys 17-4 in the 1st quarter, and that is how the rest of the night would go as well. Sigourney saw a majority of its points coming from the trio of Spencer Magill (16), Brady Powers (17), and Dustin Haines (14). The Savages would end up rolling the Bears, 66-17.
Next up for the English Valleys, they travel to Keota for another conference double header on Tuesday, December 5th. Sigourney returns home for their next conference double header against Belle Plaine, also on Tuesday, December 5th.
