Monday, December 3, 2012

STORM LAKE - The Storm Lake girl's basketball team dropped their fourth straight on Thursday night as they were tamed by the Monarchs of Denison-Schleswig, 58-32.

The shots are still struggling to fall for the green and white as they made just 12-of-39 from the floor and 5-of-17 from three.

"The unforced errors hurt us again," said Storm Lake head coach Mel Fisher. "We only ended up with 22 turnovers, but we had eight each in the first and third quarters. That is too many possessions we are shorting ourselves offensively. For the second night this week, we struggled on the boards as well. On a positive note our steals and assists numbers continue to be on the rise which will lead to good things. We are going to enjoy our weekend off an get ready for Lakes Conference play beginning Tuesday in Hull, which won't be an easy task."

Emily Johnson did have a strong showing, hitting on 5-of-9 for a team-high 13 points. She added three rebounds and five blocks.

"In my opinion, Emily Johnson had the best all around game of her career," said Fisher. "She was aggressive offensively and a game changer defensively. It was nice to see some aggression and spark in Emily's eyes."

Brenna Richter added six points and three steals. Kallie Croker had five points and three assists, Annabelle Eades five points and three rebounds and Chyann Smith three points.

After visiting the Wolfpack Tuesday, the Tornadoes are back at home Friday night to take on Spirit Lake.
