Lady Tigers take over to beat Standing Rock 49-31

The Lady Tigers started slowly but warmed up in the second quarter to post a 49-31 win over Standing Rock in Fort Yates, N.D., on Monday.
“It was a scrappy game,” said coach Lindsey Bachman. “We forced turnovers and ran the court pretty well.”
The Lady Tigers dominated play in the first quarter but could not get warmed up from the field and settled for a 6-6 tie after the first eight minutes.
The second quarter was different. With the game tied at 10-10, Hannah Stroeder started a 14-0 Lady Tiger run with a basket. TyRel Thompson then went on a one-woman seven-point streak with two two-point field goals wrapped around a three-pointer. Lauryn Henderson scored five points with a Megan Zahn hoop in between.
The Lady Tigers made sure the home team would not get any ideas about rallying by opening the second half on a 6-2 run to stretch the lead to 32-16. The Lady Tigers led 39-25 late in the third quarter when Thompson put the finishing touches on a big night. She hit two straight three-pointers to give the Lady Tigers a 20-point lead. The second three snapped the net as the buzzer sounded to end the third quarter.
The Lady Tigers had other big numbers, pulling down 37 rebounds and forcing 31 turnovers. But they also committed 24 turnovers of their own.
“I think that game had a record for jump balls,” said Bachman. “We have to protect the ball better.”
Thompson used her four three-pointer night to lead the Lady Tigers with a game-high 18 points. Henderson and Zahn combined for 17 points in the first half, while finishing with 12 and 11, respectively. Rebounding was a team effort as Thompson, Zahn and Hannah Stroeder had six each and Henderson had five. Henderson and Jadin Monsen led the ball-hawking with four and three steals, respectively.
Kya Crow Ghost led the Warriors with 13 points. Amara Martinson followed with six.

The Lady Tigers faced a mismatch in Miller on Thursday, falling 58-26 to the Rustlers.
“They’re [Miller] good,” said Bachman. “We just tried to grind it out.”
Miller, featuring 6-foot-1 all-stater Kadye Fernholz as the leader of the team with five players taller than the Lady Tigers’ tallest players, started the game by scoring nine straight points. When Hayley Borah scored to make it 9-2, the Rustlers scored two more baskets. The game was never within single digits again. The Rustlers led 22-9 after one and 33-16 at the half. Miller started the second half with an 8-0 run to put the game away.
The Lady Tigers struggled against the Miller defense front line that included 6’1” Elie Brooks. The girls never scored double digits in any quarter.
“It was tough inside,” said Bachman.
Henderson scored eight points, Thompson seven and Zahn six to lead the Lady Tigers.
Fernholz scored 19 points, all in three quarters, to lead Miller. Brooks followed with 12. Abby Ketelhut and Rachel Joy added eight points each.
