The girls basketball team picked up their 2nd win in a row on the road at Lawton-Bronson, IA, 45-36 Jan. 28.

The 1st quarter was a low-scoring affair, with the 1st field goal from either team 4 minutes into the game. L-B scored only 2 points in the quarter, off free throws. The Husky defense held them to just 15 percent from the field. (See box below for last 4 games.) EPJ stole the ball 19 times over the course of the game, 7 of them by Riley Donnelly.

Lily Kempf hit for 20 points in the game and made 6 of 8 free throws. Kenna Curry led all rebounders with 11.

It was one of the Huskies’ best shooting nights, as they shot over 40 percent in the 2nd half, both overall and from beyond the arc. They also hit over 70 percent of their free throws.
