Chamberlain’s quick start derails Lady Tigers


The Lady Tigers fell behind early and lost a 62-21 game to Chamberlain in Chamberlain on Friday.
Chamberlain used pressure defense to force Lady Tiger turnovers while jumping out to a 7-0 lead. The Cubs led 12-1 before Aundrea Kramer hit a jumper for the Lady Tigers’ first field goal of the game. The lead was 21-7 by the end of the first quarter.
A 7-0 run to start the second quarter made it 28-7 and the home-standing Cubs never looked back.
“Their pressure defense took us right out of our game,” said coach Ann LaMont. “We struggled with the ball and even getting our offense started.”
LaMont said that after a few games of steady progress, the Lady Tigers took a step backward after losing their concentration on the road.
“We panicked,” said LaMont. “We have to learn to stay in control and stay mentally focused when that pressure is applied.”
Kramer had a strong game for the Lady Tigers with five of the team’s eight field goals and a team-high 12 points. Chelsy Hoffman scored four points, Alexa Schaefbauer and Sam Good Shield had two each and Taylor Brekke one.
Abbey Handel hit four three-pointers and led the Cubs with a game-high 17 points. Kennedy Wagner and Brittany Goodlow joined her in double figures with 14 and 12 points, respectively. Kylie Bertram added nine points.

Climb stays steep
This weekend the Lady Tigers host Ipswich on Friday before hitting the road to play Todd County on Saturday.
“It’s not going to be any easier,” said LaMont.
Ipswich is 11-4 and on a six-game winning streak. Ipswich has gotten the better of the Lady Tigers over the years, holding a 27-16 edge in the all-time series. Mobridge-Pollock had won two in a row before Ipswich won a 73-32 game in Ipswich last year.
Todd County has been rolling with a 13-3 record this year. Their only losses have come to 13-1 Pine Ridge (twice) and 13-1 Winner. Todd County and the Lady Tigers have battled back and forth over the years with the Lady Tigers holding a 10-9 lead after 19 games. The Falcons have won the last two, including a 70-47 win in Mobridge last season.
