Girls Basketball Defeats Riverdale 71-43


January 7 

Last night the Mineral Point Girls basketball team defeated the Riverdale Chieftains. The JV won with a final score of 45-36. For the JV, Katelyn Cox was the lead scorer with 18 points and Breanna Goninen with 8 points. Varsity crushed the Chieftains with a final score of 71-43. The lead scorer for varsity was Mallory Lindsey with 26 points and 8 three-pointers! Ella Chambers ended with 14 points and Kennedy Wenger with 13. Coach Keyes commented, ¨I thought we played very well defensively as a team. We shared the basketball on offense and had great energy as a whole. We shot it very well. The game is a lot easier when the ball is going in the basket.” Another comment from our lead scorer, Mallory Lindsey, ¨We did a good job of sharing the basketball and finding the open girl for shots on offense and our defense/rebounding was probably as good as it’s been all year.  When we play loose and have fun together, we can be a really good team!¨ The Lady Pointers will travel to Iowa Grant this Saturday to take on the Panthers. JV will start at 6:00 P.M. with varsity to follow shortly after.
