Lady Cubs play 3 against tough competition By Ieremy Kuechle, coach Kimball played three games last week, all against quality oppo- nents, at Annandale currently #3 in state power rankings, Pierz, with whom Kimball is tied for third place in the CMC, and St. Cloud Cathedral, ranked #18 in state power rankings. Kimball at Annandale Facing the Cardinals in Annan- dale, the Cubs got off to a slow start not, scoring until the Cardi- nals had already established a 12-0 lead. Kimball trailed 29-12 at half- time and only scored seven points in the second half as Annandale cruised to a 54-19 win. The Car- dinals fierce defense forced Kim- ball into poor decisions and poor shooting most of the second half. Kimball's scoring line: Allie Seth 6, Casie Mackereth 3, Made- lyn O'Brien 3, Breane Meierhofer 2, Kenadi Mackereth 2, Alissa Jones 2, Kaylee Petty 1. Kimball outrebounded Annnadale by five rebounds which was the only highlight statiscally for the Cubs. Seth had 9 boards, Meierhofer 8, Petty 4, Mackereth 4. Raelynn Callander led the defense with 4 steals. Pierz at Kimball Next up for the Cubs was a home matchup with the Pierz Pio- neers in a battle for third place in the CMC as both teams came in with a 4-3 CMC record. The game featured a great crowd of fans as "Bleacher Creature" fan night helped provide some extra energy and excitement thanks to a lot of support from the Kim- ball Sports Boosters. The first half resulted in a 34-31 halftime lead for the Cubs as the pace was fever- ish. Each team pushed the tempo. Kimball connected on 8-15 three point attempts in the first half as Pierz continued to sag off Kim- ball's guards. The game came down to the final minute as Allie Seth hit 4 of 4 freethrows in the games last two minutes to cut a Pierz five-point lead to one point, 57-56 with 26 seconds remaining. Pierz would then answer with two freethrows to push the lead back to 59-56 with 19 seconds remaining. Next, Meierhofer came through in the clutch sinking a game-tie- ing three pointer with 10 seconds left and then proceded to get a steal with the help of Raelynn Cal- lander with 5 seconds left but Mei- erhofer's shot attempt to win it at the buzzer was unsuccessful and regulation would end at 59-59. In the overtime, Pierz scored the first 6 points, and the Cubs were unable to keep the momen- tum going as the Pioneers ended up with a 67-62 overtime win. Mei- erhofer led Kimball with 22 points followed by Seth 14, Kenadi Mack- ereth 11, Paiten Schreiner 9, Petty and O'Brien 2, and Casie Mack- ereth and Callander each scored 1 point.
