Paynesville jumped out to an early lead and main- tained their lead the entire first half, finishing the first period with a 23-19 lead. The Cubs kept it close and with just under 10 minutes to play, took their first lead of the game at 31-29 and extended their lead to 35-30. Kimball had some chances to extend the lead further, but a few missed layups and some costly missed free-throws would come back to haunt the Cubs. Paynesville tied the game at 41-41 and would eventually hold on for a 46-45 victory. Kimball's 7-17 shooting from the flee-throw line and 25 turnovers were too much to overcome, despite many bright spots for the Cubs. Kimball's bal- anced offensive attack was led by junior Tesslynn Callander with 10 points, senior Sarah Powell and sophomore Megan Garding with 9 points each. Junior Kelsey Vigo- ren had five points, junior Sarah Megan Garding, sophomore scores nine points and 10 re- bounds. Messer four points, Freshman Brooke Merten four points, while senior Paige Peglow and freshman Amanda Wittenberg finished with two points each. Garding stepped up her play with 10 rebounds and two blocked shots on the night, Sarah Messer, junior scores four points, two blocked shots, and two steals. while Callander had a team-high six assists.
