#3 Grand Meadow Stays Unbeaten With Win Over #4 Goodhue
The Grand Meadow Superlarks were in a tight battle with the Goodhue Wildcats Friday night in Grand Meadow. Both teams were playing brilliant defensively throughout the entire game, but it was the Superlarks who were able to come out on top 49-42.
A game that never saw either team lead by more than the final score, with momentum swings and big defensive plays all came down to the free throw line. There, the Superlarks were able to cash in as Jordy Glynn, who scored her 2,000th point, and Hailey Hindt hit some clutch free throws to get the Superlarks the win.
The game was tied at 20, but in the second half with the score tied at 34, Glynn drilled a three and Grand Meadow was off and running from there, outscoring the Wildcats 14-8 down the stretch. Glynn was great with a team-high 24 points, while Sklar Cotten added in 11 points and was all over the floor on the defensive side.
Each team stepped up defensively, Torrie Rehder was great and forced many turnovers by tipping passes, while Lexie Lodermeier did her damage on the inside and at the line, scoring a team-high 18 points.
In the end, the pressure from the Superlarks was too much for Goodhue to overcome in this one, the Superlarks controlled the tempo down the stretch and made it difficult for anyone on Goodhue's squad to make shots at the end.
It was a matchup of two great teams in Section 1A, and could be a matchup we see toward the end of the year.
The Superlarks are now 22-0 on the season, while Goodhue fell to 17-5.
