Gibraltar girls defeat Sturgeon Bay 58-34 on 105.1 The Viking

The Gibraltar girls basketball team carried just a 10-point lead going into halftime, but were eventually able to pull away from the Sturgeon Bay Clippers for a 58-34 victory. Struggling with turnovers in the first half, Gibraltar could not seem to get much offense going, although the defense held firm throughout the first half. Using quick hands to rack up steals and force bad passes, the Vikings were able to overcome their own turnovers and sent Sturgeon Bay into the half with only 18 points. Despite a quick bucket from Sarah Bridenhagen to start the second half, Gibraltar would show a much improved and much more disciplined side, scoring rapidly and quickly expanding the lead to a point the Clippers could not seem to recover from.  Point guard Abby Sitte said adjustments made in the locker room during half time reenergized the team.
 

 

Payton Pluff led all scorers on the night, picking up 18 points. Karlee Kita and Kayla Follingstad were just shy of the double-digit mark, scoring 9 each. For Sturgeon Bay, Bridenhagen led the way once again with 10 points, and Carley Wodack added 8 of her own. Winners of 8 straight and 6 straight conference games, Gibraltar will face a tough test as they meet Algoma this Friday. Sturgeon Bay, now 1-8 in conference play, will face a similar challenge as they welcome the conference-unbeaten Kewaunee to their home floor on the same night.
