Small school teams start conference play

The first night of the MAAA girls small-school conference took place Monday night with three blow-outs taking place as Arcadia Valley, Bismarck and West County made their start for a title bid. Large school teams played non-conference games, and with the exception of the De Soto/Central game, the scores were also very lopsided.

Bismarck 43, Kingston 7

CADET -The Bismark Lady Indians owned the first quarter of play and that was enough as they picked up their first win of the season over the Kingston Lady Cougars, 43-7.

Bismarck’s defense held Kingston to two points in the first half of play while accumulating 34 of their own. With the game well in hand, the Lady Indians held up the ball and went without scoring in the running-clock, fourth quarter. Chelsey Politte led the Lady Indians in scoring and rebounds with 16 points and 14 boards.

Bismarck, 1-3, will host West County on Thursday, and Kingston, 0-4 will travel to Arcadia Valley on Thursday

CALEDONIA – The West County Lady Bulldogs press lasted for a half of their game and it gave them enough of a lead to finally take a 50-17 win over the Valley Lady Vikings in their first conference game.

Amy Hendrix was able to pentrate and get a shot off all game to lead the Lady Cats with 16 points.

What the Blackcats were able to get past the Lady Cats press usually was slapped back at them. Betsy Royer and Deidre Hughes, Fredericktown’s post players, blocked 11 of Herky’s shots with seven and four respectively.
