by Emre K. Erku

Fans may have been on the edge of their seats during the Region 1A semifinal Feb. 26 as the Lady Bearcats couldn’t get their motors running off the tip. However they eventually broke away midway through the game, beating Aberdeen Roncalli 55-28.

The first stanza proved to be anyone’s game as Webster’s ballers could only cash in 10 points to the Cavaliers’ five. It was no different in the second as the ‘Cats were limited to 11 tallies while Roncalli recorded 10. At halftime, Webster nursed a 21-15 lead.

Back in third quarter action, the Bearcats were determined to turn things around. They hit 13 points while restricting the ‘Cavs to a couple. Although Roncalli came back to score 11 points in the fourth, it just wasn’t enough. Webster took the game 55-28.

Haley Rithmiller th-rilled the crowds with her 17 points and 14 boards for a double-double. McKenzie Volesky used her speed and agility to put down 12 points, while Lindsey Vogl recorded seven. As a team the ‘Cats went 20 of 60 from the floor, 11 of 15 at the stripe complemented with 35 total rebounds.

The Cavaliers’ Hailey Kline dropped in 11 points, while teammate Jami Ewert scored eight. Aberdeen Roncalli went 13 of 46 from the field, two of nine from the line while they hauled in 24 boards.

The ‘Cats will face Milbank in the region championship March 3 at 7 p.m.
