The Warriors kept it reasonably close in the first half at home, down 12-6 after one and 19-12 at half time, but they were unable to break into double digit scoring in any of the four quarters as they were held to their second lowest scoring total of the season.
The Rebels connected on just 18-of-50 on the night, but eight of those were three pointers, as they improved to 7-3 since the new year.
Hallie Ehlers led the Rebels with 12 points, nine rebounds, two assists and three steals. Nicole Hamilton had 11 points and three steals, Bailey McGuire knocked down three three-pointers on her way to 10 points and three steals, and Taylor Fahnlander had eight points, three rebounds, four assists and four steals. Sioux Central came away with 17 steals in all Tuesday.
The loss makes four in a row for Alta-Aurelia, who was led by 13 points and three boards from Taler Stanton. Gracie Winterhof had six points and five steals, and Katie Turnquist had six points and four rebounds.
The Rebels are at home Friday night to take on East Sac County. The Warriors (3-13) remain at home Friday to take on a 14-2 Manson Northwest Webster that has won eight in a row.
