Outscoring the Loggers 36-10 over the course of the final three quarters. Taking advantage of free throws and turnovers to close out the game strongly.
“So in the second quarter we were able to slow it down and take it at a slower pace. That really helped us bring it out and be able to win at the end of the game,” said the Rams Ava Silbernagel. “We need to come out a little stronger and that’ll help us to get the lead quickly.”
Silbernagel finished with a game-high 17 points and Whitley Stapp added another ten in the win with the Loggers looking to find a groove and piece together strong quarters like the one they had to open the game.
“I think this game we just went into it with everything we got,” said Scio’s Carrie Jones of the start to the game. “We just have to work harder and practice like we’re in a game, go to practice and put all of our effort in and not 50/50.
