The Lady Tigers could not pull off the upset and win their final home game of the season. Todd County pulled away in the second half to beat the Lady Tigers 70-47 at Mobridge-Pollock High School Gymnasium on Saturday.
The Lady Tigers played with the 13-3 Falcons for a half and trailed just 35-29 at the intermission. Todd County outscored Mobridge-Pollock 16-6 in the third quarter and then used a 13-0 run early in the fourth quarter to put the game away.
When Todd County pulled away it was by taking advantage of their size. Erin Grimshaw (5’10), Kesley Sharkey (5’10”) and Stevie Lone Dog (5’11”) combined for 48 points. Grimshaw scored 16 of her game-high 24 points in the second half.
“They were just too big inside for us,” said coach Ann LaMont, “which has been the story of our season. The fourth-quarter run by their post players really hurt.”
On the other side of the coin, the Lady Tigers scored a season-best 47 points and had three players in double figures.
“Offensively we’re being more aggressive and converting more,” said LaMont. “Our shooting percentage was our best all year.”
Aundrea Kramer and Kaitlin Goodshield tied for team honors with 15 points each, while Chelsy Hoffman scored 12 points. Maranda Wagner added three points, seven rebounds and three assists. Kramer pulled down another seven rebounds.
Along with Grimshaw’s game-high scoring, the Falcons got 14 points and nine rebounds from Lone Dog and 10 points each from Sharkey and Selina Big Crow.

There was nothing pleasant about the Lady Tigers’ trip to Ipswich on Friday. Ipswich used defensive pressure and hot shooting to start the game on a 17-0 run. The lead was 24-2 after one quarter. Ipswich never slowed and beat the Lady Tigers 73-32.
“It was ugly,” said LaMont. “That’s all there is to it.”
LaMont said the only good to come out of the game was that after a good bawling out, the Lady Tigers responded with their effort against Todd County on Saturday.
“They reacted well,” said LaMont. “They played hard the next night. It’s a credit to their heart and their desire to become better players.”
Hoffman was the only Lady Tiger to reach double figures. She scored 11 points. Goodshield was two back with nine points and added three steals. Kramer added five points and seven rebounds. Kylee Wagner grabbed a game-high nine rebounds.
Maci Gauer led Ipswich with 24 points, eight rebounds and three steals. Ansley Sargent scored 12 points and picked off four Mobridge-Pollock passes. Shekota Myer added 10 points.

Road trip
The Lady Tigers will round out the regular season with three straight road games. Coming up this week are visits to Stanley County in Ft. Pierre on Friday and Standing Rock in Ft. Yates on Monday.
The Lady Tigers will look to put and end to their seven-game losing streak when they visit 1-14 Stanley County.  The Lady Buffs have lost 12 straight.
LaMont views this game as a change for the Lady Tigers to prove to themselves that they can take the floor as the better team.
“This is their chance to go out and not only prove they are the better team,” said LaMont, “but to be the aggressor and beat somebody.”
With a win, the Lady Tigers can tie the all-time series with the Lady Buffs at 15-15. The last time the Lady Tigers had the series at .500 was when the teams were tied 2-2 in 1993. After winning 59-27 in the regular season and 52-25 in the district last season, Mobridge-Pollock is on a five-game win streak in the series.
The Lady Tigers hold a 13-10 lead over Standing Rock in the all-time series. Last year’s 74-72 win broke a three-game losing streak.
