The weather continues to be a factor in this season’s schedule as yet another high school basketball game has been postponed.
The girls were able to play the two weekend games, traveling to St. Labre on Friday and staying home Saturday night as they played host to the Custer Cougars.
Tuesday night Savage was scheduled to come to town, however, with poor road conditions and bad weather, the game has been rescheduled to be played on Tuesday, February 1.
Friday evening in Labre, the junior varsity and varsity squads both played games.
In the junior varsity contest, the Lady Terriers came out on top in a close, hard fought battle, 42-40.
Leading the Lady Terriers in scoring with 13 each were Lexie Schlosser and Anna Fredrickson. Also scoring were Ashley Morast 8, Caitlin Lantis 4, and Caty Morrison and Franque Robertson each with 2. Scoring for St. Labre were Goodluck 2, Standing Elk 9, Cuny 10, Russell 2, Old Elk 2, Bright Wing 12, and Spang 3. This game was the only junior varsity contest for the weekend.
The second game of the evening pitted the varsity girls against the St. Labre Lady Braves varsity squad. The girls seemed to click on both ends of the court as they shot the ball very well and played aggressive defense.
Terry was victorious with a score of 65-39.
Dani Dukart and Amanda Haidle led the team in scoring with 20 and 12 points respectively. Also scoring were Lindsay Stickel 8, Kristina Fredrickson 9, Kensi Keller 6, Ashley Morast 3, and Amy Browning 7. Scoring for St. Labre were Standing Eagle 9, Swank 8, Lei 3, Yazzi 7, Big Hair 2, Walks Along 8, Russell 2.
Saturday night the Lady Terriers picked up where they left off defensively, but unfortunately not offensively. While taking relatively good shots, their percentage was definitely not up to par. They were still able to get the win, 60-15.
Leading the Lady Terriers in scoring were Carly Stickel 17, Kristina Fredrickson 12, and Dukart 10. Also scoring were L. Stickel 5, A. Fredrickson 2, Browning 9, Haidle 3, and Robertson 2.
Scoring for Custer were Grensteiner 1, Rhinehart 6, and Robinson 8.
Next on tap for the Terriers will be a Friday night game in Melstone with the junior varsity girls playing a half game starting at 4:30, followed by the boys varsity game at 5:30, and the varsity girls at 7:00. Saturday evening the varsity teams will travel to Hysham for two games. The boys’ varsity will play at 5:30 followed by the varsity girls at 7:00 p.m.
Boys split weekend games
Injuries plagued the Terry boys team during weekend action, with Saturday night’s game seeing only six players suited up to play.
"The boys played real well Friday even though we were banged up,” head coach Nathan Christofferson stated. “They moved the ball extremely well and worked hard on defense. We just couldn't get a basket to go.”
The boys shot 22/29 at the free throw line.
