D-S girls at Harlan

The Denison-Schleswig varsity girls picked up their initial Hawkeye 10 Conference victory of the season on Friday night, as the Monarchs squeaked out a 48-47 triumph at Harlan.

With the win, D-S moved to 1-2 in H-10 play and 3-2 overall.

Late in the fourth quarter, Ellie Magnuson sank two free throws with 20 seconds remaining to give D-S at 48-44 lead.

Harlan, though, went down and drained a three-point basket to pull to within 48-47.

After a foul and free throw miss by D-S, Harlan had the ball at midcourt with eight seconds left to play. The Monarchs tried to foul with having fouls to give, but couldn’t catch up and a last-second shot attempt failed for the Cyclones.

"We definitely had to hold our breath at the end," commented Mich.

"Give our girls a lot of credit. We had some different girls step up tonight and it was just a great win for us," he added.

"We came out with a lot of energy and it showed with us taking an 11-3 lead in the first quarter."

"After that, the game pretty much went back and forth," noted Mich, whose squad was 6-of-14 from three-point range and 15-of-43 overall from the floor for 35 percent.

The Monarchs also were 12-of-18 at the free throw line.

Hannah Neemann led D-S with a double-double performance of 15 points and 15 rebounds.

Sophie Sonnichsen tallied eight points. Cambri Brodersed added seven points. Payton Goslar also had six points on a pair of three-point baskets.

Magnuson had five points and seven boards.

"Goslar, Brodersen and Magnuson hit some big three-point shots for us tonight and they came at critical times," said Mich, whose team turned the ball over 14 times.

Harlan, on the night, was 7-of-21 from three-point territory and 15-of-53 overall from the field for 28 percent.

The Cyclones were 10-of-15 at the foul line.
