Wolfpack Overcome Slow Start to Defeat Elkhorn Valley

December 20, 2012 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

ELGIN — Falling behind early, the Wolfpack boys basketball team turned up the defensive pressure to defeat Elkhorn Valley 47 to 33 Tuesday night.
Early on it appeared the Falcons might pull off an upset as they built a 10 to 4 lead after one quarter. Coach Scott Becker then told the Wolfpack to turn up the defensive pressure. The results were almost immediate as the Falcons suddenly weren’t getting good ‘looks’ at the basket because the Wolfpack seized momentum.

ELGIN — Trailing by just one point at halftime, Elgin Public-Pope John couldn’t get the shots to fall in the second half and lost to Boyd County 78 to 66 Saturday night.
In one of the highest scoring games in recent memory for girls basketball, the Spartans and Wolfpack earned the praise of all fans as many stood and applauded both teams’ effort at the conclusion of the game.
Trailing 36 to 35 to start the second half, Boyd County took advantage of the hot shooting of Hannah Sobotka and McKenna Rossmeier to build an 11-point lead (55 to 44) midway through the quarter.
Then, the Wolfpack made a run of their own. A two-pointer by Nicole Beckman followed seconds later by another from Chelsi Mescher cut the lead to seven points.

A Nebraska State Patrol trooper is injured and a suspect is shot after a disturbance in Pierce and Antelope Counties
Just before 11:00 a.m., Tuesday, December 18, the Nebraska State Patrol received a request for assistance from the Pierce County Sheriff’s Office for a man who was creating a disturbance after being turned away from the Zion Lutheran School. The man had been attempting to remove his children from the facility.
The man, who was driving a semi-trailer truck, left the school and drove to a convenience store in Plainview, where he threatened harm to himself and others. He then drove to his farm north and east of Brunswick where he set fire to the semi. The suspect then got behind the wheel of a red farm tractor and proceeded to ram outbuildings, a vehicle and several fuel tanks on the property. The suspect then drove the tractor across a field to another farm house where he damaged outbuildings on the property.
The suspect attempted to run into a Pierce County Sheriff’s unit, before using the tractor to ram a Nebraska State Patrol unit responding to the scene.
Trooper Brian Detlefsen, 34, Troop B-Norfolk, a 12-year agency veteran suffered a cut to his head and bruising when his patrol car was rammed by the suspect. Trooper Detlefsen was treated and released from the Creighton hospital.
Trooper Dain Hicks, 41, Troop B- Columbus, a 14-year agency veteran, fired at the suspect. The suspect then gave himself up and was taken into custody.
The suspect, Aaron D. White, 38, Plainview, was transported to the Plainview hospital and then flown by medical helicopter to Mercy Medical Center in Sioux City, IA, where he is being treated for a non-life threatening gunshot wound to his right side.
Upon his release from the hospital, White will be lodged on a charge of assault on an officer and held in the Woodbury County, Iowa, jail pending extradition.
