Lady Hornets play well against conference leader Crandon
space
The Elcho Hornets girls basketball team came ready to play on Thursday against the state-ranked Crandon Cardinals.

But in the end, a valiant effort was not enough as Crandon pulled away for a 47-36 victory, improving to a perfect 5-0 in Northern Lakes Conference games and 9-2 overall.

The Cardinals entered the week ranked eight in the state in division four.

“I was pleased with the readiness of my Lady Hornets for this matchup against the conference leaders,” head coach Michelle Kincaid said. “Games are always tough at Crandon and we kept them under 20 points in the first half.”

Crandon went to the locker room with an 18-13 lead and the Hornets continued their strong play into the second, tying the game at 21.

The contest remained tight, with Crandon holding a four-point lead with just over four minutes remaining.

Elcho was then forced to foul in an attempt to get the ball back, but the Cardinals sunk the free throws they needed to, escaping with the 11 point win.

The Hornets shot 23 percent in the first and 31 in the second, but really struggled at the free throw line where they shot only 42 percent, but somehow managed to stay in the game.

“I was proud of how the girls executed our defense and were patient on offense,” Kincaid said. “Anna Schilling had a great night defensively on the inside and showed good senior leadership, we made some nice defensive stops and grabbed some hard-fought rebounds.”

Katie Slowik had a nice night, leading the way for the Lady Hornets with a double-double, scoring 18 points and pulling down 10 rebounds.

“Katie read the floor well and was a good leader on both ends of the floor,” Kincaid said.

Ellie Asbach just missed out on a double-double with eight points and 10 rebounds. Erica Manka added four points and five rebounds, while Lily Reinke contributed four points and four boards.

Schilling and Lexi Ernst each contributed a point and three rebounds.

Overall it was a good night on the glass for Elcho, with 23 defensive rebounds and 13 on offense.

“Great effort from the ladies tonight against a good Crandon team,” Kincaid added.

Crandon was led in scoring by Tabitha Renkus with 16 points, while Lindsay Littleton had 11.

The loss was third straight for Elcho, who falls to 8-3 on the season and 3-2 in the Northern Lakes.

The Hornets are off until Thursday, when they will play a non-conference game at Bowler.
