Little Falls sprinted out of the gate to a 33-10 halftime lead over visiting Milaca with a stifling defensive attack en route to a 57-31 triumph, Friday.

Senior Jamie Jenks led the way for the Flyers with a 16-point night, followed by junior Gabby Nouis and freshman Melanie Dorn with 10 points and six rebounds apiece.

Sophomore Kendra Pohlman (5), senior Katie Stewart (4), juniors Jennifer Ronning (4), Laura Moe (2) and Brooke Finch (2) and seniors Chantelle Anderson (2) and Danielle Schelonka (2) rounded out the balanced offensive effort.

“Defensively I thought the girls played really well,” Little Falls head coach Trent Grams said. “We hustled all game and got on the floor for every loose ball.  I was very pleased with the defensive effort of our team.”

“I feel the girls got more confident as the game got longer,” he said. “The pressure was put on Milaca this time in comparison to it sometimes being put on us. Our shooting percentage was the highest it’s been all year and it was contagious throughout the entire team as every rostered varsity player scored at least two points.”
