The West Central Area Lady Knights traveled to Breckenridge on Thursday night for a non-conference battle. The Cowgirls took an early lead and kept slowly increasing it throughout the first half taking a 26-12 lead at halftime. The Lady Knights fought back and cut the lead several times. The lowest they could decrease the margin was to 10, but they kept things interesting throughout the entire evening. The final score was the Cowgirls 49 and the Lady Knights 37. 

The Lady Knights were led by Ella Van Kempen with 12 points and she added 6 rebounds and 2 blocks. Taylin Schleicher had 6 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists, and 2 steals. Kaitlyn Hansen had 5 points, a steal, and a rebound. Hailey Bennett scored 5 points, grabbed 3 rebounds, and had 3 steals. Brianna Kreft had 3 points, 3 rebounds and a steal. Morgan Woodle had 3 points, 3 rebounds, and a steal. Dawn Anderson had 2 points, a rebound, a steal, and an assist. Katie Merrick had a point, 3 rebounds, and an assist, Morgan Sanstead 4 steals and 2 rebounds, and Kaitlyn Sanstead had a steal. 

“Tonight was about growth and finding the will to fight to the bitter end. We played a gritty game that did not come out in our favor, but we have improved in our ability to play defense,” WCA Coach Eric Schoenbauer stated. He concluded with, “Most losses do not feel good and I am not big on moral victories, but to go into a harsh environment and to fight together most of the night was impressive.”
