NEN Junior High Teams Sweep West Nodaway

Northeast Nodaway’s junior high teams earned a sweep of West Nodaway Thursday. The Academic Showcase was held that night, with students of different grades showing what they had learned.
The girls won their game 28-13 in the opener. The game was scoreless until Imajen Downing beat the Bluejay press and scored with 1:50 to go in the first quarter. But then Madelynn Mattson had consecutive putbacks for Northeast to put them back in front 4-2 after one quarter.

The lid finally came off the rim in the second quarter for Northeast. Angela Standiford scored from the high post off a pass from Paige West. West hit from the left wing off a pass from Blair Stoll. Stoll and Anne Schieber added putbacks and Stoll went backdoor and got a pass from West to put Northeast up 14-7 at the half.

Cassy Redden opened the scoring for Northeast with a backdoor pass from West. The score was stuck at 16-7 for the next three minutes until Blair Stoll trailed a fast break perfectly and got a pass from Paige West for the and-one. The shot went astray, but out of bounds off West Nodaway and then someone forgot to guard West, who was all alone to put Northeast up 20-7. Anne Schieber hit West for a shot from the left wing to make it 22-7 as Northeast held West Nodaway scoreless.
The reserves took over for the fourth quarter. Saige Kohlleppel scored off a pair of putbacks and Tierney Privett scored a driving layup for the reserves.
