Strong fourth quarter leads Trojans to win over Cadets

On Friday, Feb. 5, the Lady Trojans played host to the 10th ranked Wheaton-Herman-Norcross Warriors. The Trojans were looking to avenge a loss a few weeks back to the Warriors.

The Trojans and Warriors battled back and forth with the Lady Trojans taking a lead of 16-15 with a little over 10 minutes to play in the first half. The two teams would exchange baskets the remainder of the half with the Warriors leading 32-28 at halftime.

The second half saw the Lady Trojans come out on fire. Ortonville would go on a 15-6 run to take a lead of 43-38 with about 10 minutes to play in the game. The Warriors would settle down and strengthen their defense and forced several turnovers and converted them into buckets on the offensive end. The Lady Trojans would find themselves down by a score of 52-47 with five and half minutes to play.

Wheaton battled hard on the offensive glass as they would collect 21 offensive rebounds on the night. This helped the Warriors build their lead on the Lady Trojans. Ortonville would not find an answer to the Warriors defense down the stretch and struggled to score the last few minutes of the game and ended up losing by a score of 64-51.

Leading the Lady Trojans in scoring was Rachel Hoernemann with 15, Madysen Stegner chipped in with 13, Jaiden Conroy and Hope Hasslen each had eight, Tyler Peters had five and Samantha Erickson had two points.

On Saturday, Feb. 6, the Lady Trojans traveled to Wahpeton, ND to play Sargent Central at the NDSCS Bonanza. The Lady Trojans came out looking tired from their previous game  as they struggled to move the ball against the Cadets. Sargent Central would take advantage and started the game on a 9-0 run and led 11-3 after one quarter of play.

The Lady Trojans started to get their feet under themselves behind the scoring of Rachel Hoernemann. Rachel would score 10 points in the second quarter. The Trojans would take the lead from the Cadets and led at halftime, 19-14.

In the second half the Trojans pressed the Cadets and forced several turnovers. At the end of the third quarter the Lady Trojans still found themselves up by a score of 26-22.

In the fourth quarter the defensive pressure of the Lady Trojans and the inside presence of Madysen Stegner would be too much. Madysen would put in eight points for the Trojans in the fourth quarter to help seal the victory for Ortonville, 43-33.

The Trojans were led in scoring by Rachel Hoernemann with 16, Madysen Stegner added 12, Jaiden Conroy had nine, Hope Hasslen with five and Samantha Erickson chipped in with one point.
