defense allows only eight second-half points
DGF had no interest in pounding the rock inside. They hoisted up three-pointers to no avail, unable to corral their own rebounds over Conzemius and Camryn Kaehler, who finished with eight and nine boards, respectively. The Cowgirls constantly trapped the Rebel ball handlers, forcing turnovers that speedy guard Carcie Materi turned into easy transition scores. She finished with eight points and a game-high four steals.
The Cowgirls were led by identical stat lines of 20 points and 6 assists from Held and Conzemius. Johnson caught fire in the second-half for 13 points, including a coast-to-coast layup and a circus shot on the baseline that dropped through the net as she fell to the floor.
Resiliency has been a theme throughout 2021 and the Cowgirls showed they have plenty of that in this bounce-back win, after allowing seeing a five-point halftime deficit at Hawley balloon to an 18-point loss two days earlier. Breckenridge travels to Barnesville on Tuesday, January 26th for a crack at the Trojans in the Highway Nine Rivalry game. Tip is set for 7:30 p.m.
