On Tuesday night at Wetmore Highschool, we had a rematch from the TVL tournament on the girls' side of the night; the result remained the same as the Wetmore Girls got their second win over the Troy Trojans. While on the boys' side, it was the first matchup for the teams, and the Troy Trojans were able to cruise to win with a strong third quarter. 


GIRLS- Wetmore 48, Troy 34

 The rematch on Tuesday night was a closer, more competitive game but yielded the same result as the Cardinals size was too much as they got the win 48-34. 

 The Cardinals had a hot start to the game as they had a 22-9 lead after the first quarter, and the Trojans made some runs to try to get back into the game but were unable to do so. Turnovers were a big issue in the second quarter for both teams as the Trojans committed six, and Wetmore committed seven in that period limiting it to only a 9-5 Cardinal advantage, giving them a 31-14 first-half lead. The Trojans were able to win the second half in scoring 20-17, but it was not enough as Wetmore went on to get their fourth league win of the year and improve their record 9-9 while the Trojans fall to 3-14, and 1-8 in league play. 

 The size for Wetmore was a significant issue for the Trojans as Kenzie Strathman had a big night; she had 23 points to lead all scorers. Alyssa Bloom had 10 points and hitting two threes in the game. Makayla Mock and Regan Osterhaus had 5 points each as well. 

 The Trojans were without their leading scorer, Paityn Engelman, who was out of the game with a concussion. Avery Euler led the team in scoring with 12 points, as well as she was 4-6 from the free-throw line. Macy Norris and Reagen Hill each had 6 points as well. 


BOYS-Wetmore Cardinals 36, Troy Trojans 68


   The first matchup of the season for the Cardinals and Trojans' boys teams, and it was all Troy, particularly in the second half. After going into the break with a 31-23 lead, the Trojans broke the game open with a dominant 24-4 third quarter that put this game well out of reach, and the Trojans were able to cruise to victory with the final score being 68-36. As the first game of the night, the size was the central theme of the game just this time; it was in favor of the Trojans. 

 The Cardinals struggled to score the ball in the second half, only scoring 13 points. They also committed 11 turnovers in the second half that led to easy offense for the Trojans who used their size and length to their advantage and took quality high percentage shots. The Trojans also did a great job of getting to the free-throw line shooting 78% from the stripe, 18-23 in the game. The Cardinals did shoot 80% from the line themselves, hitting 12 of their 15 shots. 

 The big men for the Trojans had a big night as Jerrit Norris scored 21 points and was very active on the glass and the defensive end with multiple blocks in the game. His counterpart Tate Smith also contributed 18 points for the Trojans as their size and strength were just too much for the Cardinals. Two other Trojans also were in double figures as Camden Anderson had 11, and Keaton Newman had 10. 

 Braden Henry and Eric Bloom led the Cardinals in scoring each had 9 points. Storm Hackler had 6 points, Kevin Schumaker had 5 points, and Kael McQueen had 4 points.
