The Lady Tigers did a lot of things right in Stephan on Tuesday, but they struggled putting the ball in the hole and Crow Creek won a 63-37 game.
“We pushed the ball down the floor,” said coach Ann Lamont, “but we failed to convert on our shots.”
The Lady Tigers shot just 18 percent from the field, hitting 13 of 69 shots. They struggled inside the arc, making just nine of 59 attempts. They did shoot 40 percent from long range, making four of 10 three-point shots.
In the mean time, Crow Creek pulled away. The Chieftains led by seven after one quarter, pushed the lead to 16 at the half and 21 at after three quarters.
Fifty-six missed shots aside, the Lady Tigers girls played a scrappy up-tempo game against Crow Creek. Mobridge-Pollock outrebounded the taller team 40-33 and kept the turnover battle close even though Crow Creek had four less than the Lady Tigers.
“The girls fought hard defensively and rebounded well,” said LaMont.
Aundrea Kramer led the Lady Tigers with a 15-point, 12-rebound double double. Chelsey Hoffman scored 10 points. Kylee Wagner added five points and a game-high 13 rebounds in her first start.
Evaline Arrow led Crow Creek with a game-high 18 points. Kasandra Colombe scored 11 and Danielle Johnson scored 10.

With their three tall post players the Lady Tigers knew they would have their hands full against Chamberlain on Friday at Mobridge-Pollock High School Gymnasium. When a guard started drilling three-pointers in the first half, the girls had no answer and Chamberlain took off for a 70-30 win.
Alex Peterson of Chamberlain snapped the net with five three-pointers in the first half. When she hit her fifth, the Cubs had built a 30-11 lead early in the second quarter.
“Those threes in the first half really hurt us,” said LaMont. “They set us back so far and it was too hard to dig out of the hole.”
With the inside play of three players 5’10” to 6’1” added to the mix, the Cubs had too many options on offense and the Lady Tigers could not stop the visitors from scoring 43 first-half points. The inside combo of Logan Pickner, Jaymee Knippling and Corrina Reuer combined for 20 points in the first half. Reuer scored 11 of the 20 points.
“Actually, our 5’8” girls did a good job trying to defend their big girls,” said LaMont.
At the other end, the Lady Tigers could not keep pace on offense. Chelsey Hoffman and Aundrea Kramer were the only Lady Tigers to score in the first half. Hoffman scored all five of the team’s second-quarter points.
“We’re getting the looks,” said LaMont. “We have to start converting.”
Kramer led the Lady Tigers with 10 points and six rebounds. Hoffman finished with nine points and four rebounds. Kylee Wagner added four points and four boards.
Peterson and Reuer led the Cubs with 15 points each, including a combined 26 in the first half. Kennedy Wagner scored 13 points, while Pickner added 10 points and nine rebounds.
