Thu (sday, December 22. 2011 THE SUPERIOR EXPRESS 5[3 KHHS girls basketball team loses to Logan The Rock Hills High School Lady Grizzlies were edged out by the Logan Trojans in their Friday game, 40-29. It was a tale of two different halves. The first two quarters were all Logan as they out scored Rock Hills 18-8• The last two quarters were just about even as the Grizzlies scored 21 points to Logan&apos;s 22. Darica Bohnert was the leading Lady Grizzly scorer with 13 points. Haleigh Shadduck was right behind her with 12 and Lindsey Underwood completed th scoring with four points.

This game marked the beginning of the newly formed Northern Plains League (NPL and the end of the long- running Pike Trail League (PTL). The local Grizzly boys staked a 10- 4 first period lead and also went into halftime up 18-13• A good-shooting third quarter allowed the Grizzlies to extend their lead to 29-17 before Pike Valley would mount a tremendous charge in the fourth quarter. The final quarter saw both teams score as much or more as they had in the first three periods combined. Pressure; turnovers, stickbacks, and free throws all allowed Pike Valley to trim a 14 point Grizzly lead down to four points before the Grizzlies could finally come away with the 47-40 win. Pike Valley outscored RockHills 23 to 18 in the final "wild" quarter. "If someone would have told me before the game that we would have 27 turnovers and only hit four of 13 free throws in the fourth quarter and we would still win by seven points, I'd have said they were crazy!" piped Griz- zly coach Matt Hesting. But that was the case, as the Grizzlies were ex- tremely careless with the ball, and hit a season low four from the foul line but still managed to win. "We were just pretty good defensively, and the guys take alot ofprile in that," said Hesting. Rock Hills put three players in double figures with Wyatt Flinn get- ting 13 points and also eight rebounds• Cole Huncovsky finished with 12 points and two assists. Zach Spiegel , had ten points and five rebounds• Other scorers were Zach Duffy with five points and five assists; Blake Walter with five points, six rebounds, three steals, and three assists; and Jordan Walter chipped in two points.
