Elcho girls open new venue with 39-32 win over Bowler
space
The first game played in the friendly confines of the new Elcho gymnasium will go down as a positive one, as a packed house watched the Hornets knocked off Bowler 39-32 on Tuesday night.

A 16-16 game at the half turned the Hornets' way after the break, thanks to some timely defensive adjustments, helping Elcho create several key turnovers, and outscore Bowler 23-16 in the second for the win.

“The victory was one of the highlights of the evening, playing in the new gym was exciting for the girls and having such great community fan turnout was a plus for everyone,” head coach Michelle Kincaid said. “The new gym is a different atmosphere and I believe it will take the girls a few games to really make it their own.”

Bowler guard Kayla Pecore gave the Hornets trouble in the first half, doing an extremely efficient job of running her team's half court offense, as a back-and-forth game went to the halftime break even.

Kincaid's defensive adjustments did the trick however, with several turnovers in the early portion of the second half leading to transition baskets and an Elcho lead.

The Hornets were able to stretch that lead to 10 with just over nine minutes remaining and held on from there.

Katie Slowik led in scoring with 14 points, while adding seven steals and six rebounds. Ellie Asbach had nine points and seven rebounds, Emma Reynolds recorded seven points and five rebounds, while Erica Manka added five points and led the team in rebounding with eight.

“The girls did some nice offensive sets tonight with everyone having minutes on the court,” Kincaid noted. “We had some nice outside shooting by Slowik, Reynolds, Manka, and Asbach, with the mid-range jumpers which opened up some space on the inside for scoring as well.”

Elcho did commit 22 turnovers in the contest, but allowed just four fast break points from the Panthers, all of which came in the first half.

“The turnover number has to decrease to best help us have more wins this season,” Kincaid said. “I was proud of the girls for continuing to play hard and never giving up when Bowler took the lead.”

Jodi Wolf led Bowler with eight points, Pecore added seven, and Tynea Johnson six.

The win moves the Hornets to 3-1 overall on the season.

“We have lots to improve on this year and positions to become familiar with,” Kincaid added. “We will continue to work hard and the goal is to get better each game.”

Elcho will next open defense of its Northern Lakes Conference title Thursday, when it travels to Goodman-Pembine.
