Going into the game, junior Emma Rouse says, “A challenge I think is going to be learning how they play, then pushing them back on offense.” Despite these worries, the girls came together as a team and bagged another win. Through the entire game, their communication and intensity stayed strong, which was another worry team member - senior Mallory Erb voiced.
The girls held a strong defense throughout the game, in the first quarter Winterset pushed the Toreadors as they attempted to learn how they played, Winterset scored nine points, while Boone only scored ten. In the second quarter, Boone got the hang of their playing method and held Winterset to three points, while scoring nine more themselves. Four minutes into the second half, Boone led by 13 points and ended the game with an eight point difference, having held strong throughout the second half of the game.
