The seventh-grade Wolf Point girls’ basketball team competed in a jamboree, Nov. 16, hosted by the Frontier Mustangs at the Wolf Point High School.
In the first game, Wolf Point was defeated by Frontier, 41-20. The Lady Wolves only played five girls, due to injury and ineligibility issues, in the match against the Mustangs.
Frontier was able to dictate the pace in the first half establishing a halftime lead of 21-5. Hailey Brunelle, Lauren Crawford and Laressa Dale scored points for the Lady Wolves in the first half of the game.
In the second half of the game, Wolf Point was outpaced by Frontier 20-15 dropping the contest by a final score of 41-20. Leading the way for Wolf Point in the game was Abby Juve with 12 points. Brunelle scored five points; Crawford had two points and Dale made one to cap the team’s scoring.
In game two of the jamboree, Wolf Point rebounded from the loss to defeat the Plentywood Lady Cats, 34-6.
Strong defense and rebounding allowed the Lady Wolves to build a 16-4 half-time lead. In the first half, Wolf Point was paced by the inside-outside duo of Juve and Brunelle who scored four and 12 points, respectively.
The Lady Wolves held the Lady Cats to only one field goal in the second half behind strong team defense to win with a final score of 34-6.
Brunelle led her team with 20 points while Dale made eight and Juve scored six.
Coach Stacey Summers said the team played well considering they only had a total of five players competing in the jamboree. She added that the less-experienced players stepped up this past weekend and will benefit from the experience on the court.
The seventh-grade team won’t have to wait too long to face the Lady Wildcats on the court. Wolf Point will travel to Plentywood for a jamboree Nov. 23.
