MITCHELL Treiquella Osborne dialed in from the perimeter to lead the Dayville/Monument Lady Tigers to a 35-19 victory over the Mitchell Loggers in girls basketball last Friday, Jan. 11.
We played well, with smart defense, said head coach Jay Kenyon. We are improving ... doing some of the little things that will make us a better basketball team.
The Tigers outscored the Loggers in every quarter, dominating the boards, and picking up easy points off a stellar defense.
Osborne led in scoring with 14, followed by Cheyenne Perkins and Alix Perkins, with 6 each; Mary Yankee, 4; Jordin Cowdrey, 2; Daryl Ann Waltenburg, 2; and Emmalee Hettinga, 1.
The win was followed by a free weekend, providing time for the Tigers to prepare for next weekends tough schedule.
Dayville/Monument will host Ukiah at 6 p.m. Friday, Jan. 18, and then battle the No. 1 Prairie City Panthers at 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 19, in Monument.
The Panthers are known for a physical game and creating early foul trouble for their opponents. Ample playing time for players who came off of the bench in the Mitchell game may be a key factor late in the game, and season.
We have a big hill to climb this weekend against a very good Prairie City team, said Kenyon.
