Wolfpack Girls Split Opening Games

VERDIGRE — Who needs four quarters to win a basketball game?

Elgin Public-Pope John were held scoreless in the fourth quarter Friday night.

It didn’t matter as the Wolfpack posted a 46 to 30 victory over Niobrara/Verdigre.

Earning their first victory of the season, the Wolfpack excelled at both ends of the floor during the first three quarters. They jumped out to a 36 to 14 lead at halftime, then outscored the Cougars 10 to four in the third quarter to make a Niobrara/Verdigre comeback impossible.

“We got off to a great start this game, but did not finish the way we should have,” Coach Randy Eisenhauer said.

“The girls played with confidence throughout the game to get us the win.”
