Girls Basketball: Evans drains 22, but LPGE knocks off Bulldogs
By PATRICK SLACK
The Swanville girls basketball team held Long Prairie-Grey Eagle’s offense in check, but couldn’t generate enough of its own, Monday, falling 50-38.
Junior Marissa Evans shouldered the bulk of the scoring load for the Bulldogs, knocking down 22 points and grabbing seven rebounds.
Sophomore Nikki Primus posted six points and nine rebounds and senior Molly Jordan added five points and 12 boards.
Freshman Danica Hanson chipped in with three points and junior Abbey Schultz had two.
“We played a good defensive game,” head coach Aaron Gapinski said. “I was really pleased the way we rebounded, limiting LPGE to one shot and done on most possessions. The girls need to continue playing with confidence on the offensive end and believing in each other.”
