Wolfpack Girls Open With Victory Over N-V Cougars

ELGIN — Down at halftime, the Wolfpack girls turned it ‘on’ in the second half to defeat Niobrara-Verdigre 50 to 36.
Playing their first game of the season, the team struggled in the early going as the Lady Cougars built a 19 to 15 lead at halftime. Cold shooting and a leaky defense hurt the Wolfpack.
Then, in the span of a few minutes in the third quarter, everything changed.
Shots that wouldn’t go in, suddenly found the mark. A two-pointer from Madison Voborny at the 7:01 mark of the third qwuarter gave EPPJ their first lead of the game, 21 to 20. Chelsi Mescher then added a trey before Cougar Cathryn Hanzlik sank a free throw to make the score 24 to 21.
