Lady Trojans defeat Canby, drop games to WCA, LqPV

The Lady Trojans opened a busy week on the road against the Canby Lancers on Monday, Feb. 5. Right from the start, the Lancers out-hustled the Trojans and took a 28-15 lead into the locker room at half time. 

However, the Trojans came out the second half and completely dominated the game.  They outscored the Lancers by 20 and came away with a 50-43 win. 

Leading the way for the Trojans was Jaiden Conroy with 15 points, seven rebounds and five steals. Tyler Peters had a solid game with 12 points and five steals. Madysen Stegner followed with seven points and seven rebounds.  Carissa Vanderwal and Emily Ross each netted seven points, while Allyssa Kirchberg finished with two.

Thursday, Feb. 8, the Lady Trojans returned home to face the West Central  Area Knights. This game was very similar to the first time these teams faced each other. The Trojans again found themselves in severe foul trouble. This really slowed down the Trojans and forced them to pull out of their effective press. At half-time, the Trojans found themselves down by a score of 28-27. 

The game stayed just as tight the second half, but the huge foul advantage for the Knights was too much for the Trojans to overcome and they ended up falling by a score of 57-50. The Knights shot a total of 35 free-throws to the Trojans six.  Leading the way for the Trojans was Jaiden Conroy with 16, points, seven rebounds, six assists and five steals even though she sat much of the game in foul trouble. Madysen Stegner had 12 points, nine rebounds and five steals.  Carissa Vanderwal had a nice game with eight points, four rebounds and three steals.  Allyssa Kirchberg did a nice job off the bench with six points and two steals. Tyler Peters finished with four points and five steals and Emily Ross came off the bench to score four points and grab six rebounds.

The Lady Trojans concluded their week by traveling to the U of M – Morris to face the highly ranked LqPV Eagles on Saturday, Feb. 10.  The final score does not reflect how closely contested this game was.  The story of this game was three-pointers.  Although the Trojans switched up their defense several times, they could not stop the hot-shooting Eagles. 

The Eagles finished the night with 13 three-pointers to the Trojans five.  The shell-shocked Trojans ended up falling by a score of 74-56.  Leading the charge for the Trojans was Jaiden Conroy with 16 points, four steals. Madysen Stegner had 11 points and six rebounds. Tyler Peters had a nice day with 10 points and eight rebounds.  Samantha Erickson finished with ninepoints, while Allison Plathe finished with five.  Carissa Vanderwal ended the night with three points and Breanna Kirchberg finished with two.

This week the Trojans travel to Milbank on Tuesday and return home to face the Wheaton-Herman-Norcross Warriors on Thursday.
