The Lady Cobras scored the first ten points of the game and never looked back with constant full court pressure that produced 30 Onaga turnovers, many of which resulted in transition buckets for Jackson Heights.  The Cobras led 21-4 after one quarter and 34-7 at halftime, then took a 53-10 advantage into a running clock throughout the final frame.

After posting 11 points and 7 rebounds per game as a starting freshman, Kylie Dohl kicked off her sophomore season just missing a triple-double.  Dohl scored 8 of her game high 18 points in the third quarter and finished with 10 rebounds and seven steals to earn “Player to Bank On” honors from the Citizens State Bank and Trust Company.  Abby Brey added nine and fellow sophomores Jodi White (6 points) and McKenzie Kennedy (5 points) combined for 11 all in the opening stanza.  Trinity McMahon added six points as did freshman, Amaya Marlatt for Jackson Heights, who has six of their first seven games at home this season, including the next game on Friday, December 8th against MH-MA. 

Onaga got four points each from Rebecca and Laura Krohn, but Belinda Ames was held to just two points after scoring 18 the night before at D-West.  The Buffaloes have one game next week versus St. Xavier on Tuesday.

Similar to the night before at D-West, Onaga jumped to the early lead, but a 4-0 start was quickly erased as the Cobras scored the next 14 points to build a double-digit lead and not look back.  Jackson Heights led 18-8 after one quarter and 29-19 at halftime, with the margin stretching to as many as 17 and Onaga not getting any closer than eight points in the second half.  Levi Olberding scored in every quarter and finished with a game high 18 points to lead the Cobras and earn Citizens State Bank and Trust Company of Hiawatha “Player to Bank On” honors.  He also grabbed several rebounds and steals as Heights forced 20 turnovers and got buckets in transition.  Kolby Rethman hit four treys and added 15 points in his first varsity start and Braden Dohl finished with eight of his 10 points in the second half as Jackson Heights worked the ball inside.  Lane Thomas added eight points for the Cobras.
