O’NEILL — Trailing entering the fourth quarter, Elgin Public-Pope John rallied to defeat North Central 44 to 42 in the quarter-final round of the girls Niobrara Valley Conference Tournament.
In the final eight minutes of the game, the Wolfpack outscored the Lady Knights 12 to nine to survive and advance in the tournament.
The game was won in the final moments. Coach Randy Eisenhauer said North Central was unable to get the ball in-bounds and was whistled for a five-second call. With the ball under EPPJ’s basket, Jenna Parks got the ball to Ally Wemhoff at the top of the key. She was fouled on her shot attempt with 1.1 seconds left in the game. The freshman then made two free throws for the margin of victory.
The Wolfpack’s defense may have been the difference in the game. In the second half the Wolfpack outscored North Central 23 to 12.
Senior Jenna Parks led EPPJ with 15 points, Baylee Wemhoff added 11.
By virtue of the victory, the Wolfpack will now play St. Mary’s in the semi-final round of the tournament Friday night (February 5) at St. Boniface gymnasium. Tip-off will be at 6:15 p.m.

Wolfpack Boys Earn NVC Tournament First Round Victory

February 4, 2016 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

ELGIN — Victory tastes sweet, especially at tournament time when it’s win and advance.
Elgin Public-Pope John did just that Saturday night, defeating North Central 60 to 46 in the first round of the Niobrara Valley Conference boys basketball tournament.
The Wolfpack built a 13-point lead in the first half as, Coach Scott Becker said, the team passed the ball well to find the open man.
In the second half, the Wolfpack held off several runs by the Knights. Back-to-back baskets by Kyle Kallhoff gave the Wolfpack a 36 to 21 advantage with just over six minutes left in the third quarter. North Central answered back, cutting the lead to 38 to 27 on a trey by Cash Cosgrove.
Following a basket by Chad Bode, the two teams traded baskets before North Central’s Quinton Shaw cut the lead to 11 points, 42 to 31.
Twice the Knights had a chance to cut the Wolfpack’s lead to single digits, only to be thwarted by the Wolfpack’s defensive play.
A three-pointer by Ashton Evans bumped the lead back to 14 points with two minutes to go in the quarter and the Knights were unable to make another significant run the rest of the game.
At one point in the fourth quarter the lead grew to 16 points as the Wolfpack’s quickness was too much for North Central to overcome on this night.
Kallhoff led EPPJ with 12 points, Scott Moser had 11 and Dylan Behnk tossed in 10 points. Cosgrove led the Knights with 10 points.
