County D-SC girls' teams all lose season and league openers
All three of Pierce County’s Dunn-St. Croix Conference girls’ basketball teams lost their first league and season opening games last Tuesday.
Glenwood City topped Plum City 42-34, Boyceville beat Spring Valley 59-28 and Colfax defeated Elmwood 68-12.
Plum City came the closest to winning. They hung with GC despite begin short-handed in personnel due to ineligibilities, trailing 20-18 and halftime and 34-31 at the end of the third quarter. But an exhausted Blue Devils squad was outscored 8-3 in the fourth quarter. Sarah Gilles led Plum City in scoring with 14 points.
Spring Valley had a disappointing first game at Boyceville. The Bulldogs led 29-18 at halftime but a 19-3 run by the home team in the third quarter all but put the contest in the bag. Emily Boisen was SV’s only player in double figures with 10 points. No one else scored more than four points (Nevada Schlegel and Brianna Wyss).
Elmwood had just three players score in their homecourt loss to the Vikings, which was their 22nd straight league win. Jennifer Weix had five points for the Raiders, Kaitlyn Lee scored four points and Shelby Hall had three points.
