Sam Good Shield gets fouled by Tara Heuer (22) of Potter County as the pair run into Lady Battler Alysyn Breaw and Lady Tiger Naomi Stroeder. Potter County defeated the Lady Tigers 51-29 at Mobridge-Pollock High School Gymnasium on Monday.

The Lady Tigers proved they could hold up rebounding against a taller team, but could not put two solid halves together and were defeated 51-29 by Potter County at Mobridge-Pollock High School Gymnasium on Monday.
“We rebounded very well,” said coach Ann LaMont. “I think its something we’re getting better at.”
The Lady Tigers got off to a good start and led 8-6 after one quarter. Potter County came back with a 14-6 run in the second quarter to take a 20-14 lead at the half.
“We did some things to take them out of their game,” said LaMont.
The tide turned quickly in the second half. The Lady Battlers started the third quarter with a 12-0 run and led 38-19 after three quarters. Another run in the fourth quarter built the lead to 30 points before the Lady Tigers rallied late to cut the final deficit to 22 points.
“We need to put a second half together,” said LaMont. “We need to play under control and more disciplined. We’re not doing that right now.”
Alli Lake led Potter County with a game-high 14 points. She was eight of 10 from the free throw line. Regan Everson scored 10 points, including eight in the second quarter. Alyssa Haberer and Morgan Vander Vorst added seven and six points, respectively.
Aundrea Kramer led the Lady Tigers with six points and a game-high 13 rebounds. Kaitlin Good Shield scored a team-leading 11 points. ReAnne Kohlus and Sam Good Shield combined for another 12 rebounds as the Lady Tigers outrebounded the taller Battlers by a 32-15 margin.

St. Francis
What was so close became so far away as the Lady Tigers held a 45-40 lead early in the fourth quarter only to lose 56-53 to St. Francis Indian on Saturday at home.
“The girls understand what they did wrong,” said LaMont. “But the loss took a lot out of them.”
The Lady Tigers came out firing and took an early 11-0 lead. They maintained that margin and led 32-20 at the half. Alexa Schaefbauer and Kaitlin Good Shield sparked the Lady Tigers in the first half. Schaefbauer hit eight straight free throws and scored 10 points. Good Shield hit two three-pointers and scored eight points.
Mobridge-Pollock started the second half with a 6-0 run and led 38-30, but then St. Francis started heating up. With Darien Quick Bear hitting seven of eight free throws and Chey Brushbreaker draining two threes, the Lady Warriors went on a 17-4 run to cut the Lady Tiger lead to 42-37.
After Good Shield hit her third three-pointer of the game, the Lady Tigers led 45-40 early in the fourth quarter. But then the Lady Warriors got hot. Quick Bear scored four points and Natasha Bad Hand hit two threes as St. Francis pushed ahead 50-48. The Lady Warriors hit another basket and just enough free throws down the stretch to hold the Lady Tigers off and win the three-point game.
Good Shield led the Lady Tigers with a game-high 19 points. Kramer scored 13 points and grabbed eight rebounds. Schaefbauer scored 10 points. Chelsy Hoffman added eight points and pulled down a game-high eight rebounds.
Quick Bear led St. Francis with 13 points and six rebounds. Neola Spotted Tail scored 13 points and Brushbreaker scored eight.

McLaughlin pulled away in the second half to defeat the Lady Tigers 70-43 in Mobridge on Thursday.
The Lady Tigers played right with the Lady Midgets in first half and trailed just 34-27 at the intermission. McLaughlin used a 15-5 run in the third quarter to push ahead by 17 before outscoring the Lady Tigers 21-11 in the fourth quarter.
“We played them a lot better than the final score indicates,” said LaMont.
Hoffman led the Lady Tigers with 12 points. Schaefbauer and Good Shield scored seven points each, while Taylor Brekke and Naomi Stroeder scored six points each. Kramer and Kohlus had eight and seven rebounds, respectively.
Lady Midget McKenna Vetter lit the Lady Tigers up with 27 points, including 12 in the fourth quarter. Shayla Gayton scored 17 points and grabbed six rebounds. Jayda Bad Horse scored nine points and hauled in a team-leading nine rebounds. Kiara Schmeichel added eight points.
