Lady Spartans fall to Beckman
SOLON– The Lady Spartans fell to both Dyersville Beckman and West Delaware last week, but took Benton Community to overtime for a win Friday night.
The Beckman matchup was a makeup of a game wiped out by the weather in December, and the Lady Spartans made an impressive fourth-quarter comeback before falling, 45-36.
Freshman Josie Durr put in 14 points to lead Solon in scoring. Nichole Oberthien led in rebounding with eight. The Lady Spartans shot six free throws for the night, while Beckman went to the line 26 times.
On Tuesday (Jan. 14), Solon held a one-point lead going into the fourth quarter against West Delaware, but the Hawks outscored the Lady Spartans 18-7 in the fourth to pull out a 57-47 win.
The girls chalked up a hard-earned victory Friday night on the road at Benton Community, holding the Bobcats to just two points in the second quarter to climb back into the game. The Lady Spartans won in overtime, 47-44.
