Scoring once again came at a premium for Bellmont who, for the first time this season, could not keep their opponent in check defensively. One reason for the change...Ally Christman.
The senior poured it on the Squaws all night long finishing with 21 points on 7-10 shooting from the field including a blistering 4-5 from beyond the arc.
The Lady Saints collectively shot the lights out against Bellmont nailing 60% of their shots finishing with 6-9 from three-point land.
The Squaws were once again the victims of the turnover bug coughing the ball up 16 times in the game compared to just two TOs from Dwenger. Bellmont only hoisted a total of 28 shots in the game making 13 of them to their credit (46%).
Taylor Kuhnle did what she could to help the cause sinking all seven of the Squaws' free throws in an 11-point effort with five rebounds, a steal and 7-9 from the charity stripe. She was the only Bellmont player in double figures in the game.
Amanda Hunter posted seven points including the Squaws' only three-pointer on the night. She also had a pair of rebounds and a steal. Brooke Zimmerman added six points with two assists, two blocks, and five rebounds. Devon Schultz and Courtney Scherer each had four points and Audrey Schultz contributed a bucket in the loss.
Bellmont will go on the road for the first time this season going to Jay County Friday with a JV start time of 6 p.m.
