CO-U girls fall, boys top Woodbine in RVC action

  • 0

The Woodbine girls and Charter Oak-Ute boys were winners in Rolling Valley Conference action between the two schools on Tuesday night at Charter Oak.

In game one, CO-U struggled offensively in the first half, as Woodbine avenged an earlier loss to the Lady Bobcats with a 60-49 victory on the road.

In the nightcap, Trent Lally’s CO-U squad earned a season sweep of Woodbine with a 79-66 triumph over the visiting Tigers.

Girls’ results

Tuesday’s loss was the second in a row for Derek Dougherty’s CO-U club, which fell to 9-6 in the RVC and 10-8 overall.

Two scoring droughts of nearly six minutes in the first half and 19 turnovers resulted in CO-U trailing 26-11 at halftime.

The Lady Bobcats outscored the Tigers 38-34 in the second half, but the first-half deficit was just too much for CO-U to rebound from.

Tori Nuzum scored 19 points to lead CO-U to go with four steals and three boards.

Casey Carstens added 11 points, six boards, three blocks and two steals. Taya Thomas recorded nine points, six assists and four boards.

HaiLee Dobernecker had six points and five boards. Jennifer Stallons finished with three points, four boards and three steals, while Kenzie Smith had one point, six boards and three steals for the hosts.

"We were finally able to hit some shots and limit our turnovers in the second half, but the damage was already done," commented Dougherty.

"The difference in this game came at the line where they made 11 more free throws than us. Everything else was pretty even."

"Give Woodbine credit for working extremely hard on defense and playing aggressive on offense. Every time we hit a shot or made a run to cut into the lead, they responded with one of their own. They earned the win and were the better team tonight," Dougherty said.

Boys’ results

Five CO-U boys reached double figures in Tuesday’s game, as the Bobcats snapped a two-game losing streak in going to 6-8 in the RVC and 8-9 overall.

Following up a 59-27 win at Woodbine back on December 20, CO-U raced out to a 44-27 halftime lead and led 60-42 after three quarters.

Jesse Hupp paced CO-U with 19 points to go with eight boards.

Spencer Gress added 18 points, three boards, two assists and two steals. Hunter Clausen also had 16 points, nine boards and two shot blocks.

Luke Staley finished with 14 points and nine assists. Caleb Clemon wound up with 12 points, four assists and two steals.

CO-U went to the free throw line 29 times in the contest with 19 falling through the net.
