Spartan girls tie for first in NEC win over Freedom on WBDK

The Luxemburg-Casco Spartans girls avenged an early season loss to the Freedom Irish with an impressive 56-43 road victory Thursday night.  The ninth consecutive win by the Spartans puts them in a first-place tie with Freedom in the North Eastern Conference while snapping the Irish’s 14 game winning streak.

Luxemburg-Casco (11-1, 13-3 overall) broke open a close 14-14 game in the first half with a 15-1 run and eventually took a 34-19 lead into intermission.  Cassie Schiltz led the Spartans scoring with 22 points while Jenna Jorgenson added 13 points.  Freedom (11-1, 15-2) did make a run in the second half behind five three-pointers by Callie Genke to get as close as seven points, but the Spartans showed poise and stellar defense to claim a convincing victory.

The next Spartan girls’ basketball game broadcast on WBDK 96.7FM will be next Monday at home against Marinette.  Matt Piesler and Paul Schmitt will have the call starting at 7:00 p.m. with the pregame show and tip-off at 7:15 p.m.  Game audio can also be streamed on
