C-E girls compete at DVC tourney

Posted: Tuesday, Jan 22nd, 2013

The Colman-Egan girl’s basketball team took part in the annual Dakota Valley Conference tournament last week in Elkton and Deubrook. The Hawks lost their first two games of the tournament but were able to rebound to beat Lake Preston for sixth place.

Colman-Egan 29 – Estelline 61

The Hawks started the tournament off Monday night by taking on the Estelline Lady Redmen in Elkton. The Hawks were looking to avenge their 48-33 loss to the Lady Redmen on December 18th, while Estelline was looking to remain undefeated on the season – entering the game with an 8-0 record.

The two teams had some early struggles offensively, but Estelline’s defense made up for their offensive shortcomings by forcing some key turnovers. The Lady Redmen escaped the first quarter with a small 10-5 lead.

The second quarter was the turning point in the game. Estelline’s Erin Begalka scored 10 straight points, book ended by a couple deep 3-pointers.

After the dust had settled, the Lady Redmen had put up 21 points and the Hawks were left with just one bucket – giving Estelline the 31-7 lead at halftime.

Colman-Egan came out of the halftime break a little rejuvenated, putting up 12 points in the third quarter, but it was not enough, the Lady Redmen were able to put up 18 points to increase their lead to 49-19.

Estelline added two more points to their lead in the fourth, bringing the game to its final score of 61-29.

Begalka put up 22 points on 9-16 shooting for the Lady Redmen. Estelline was able to shoot 43% (6-14) from behind the arc including a 5-11 performance in the first half alone.

Paityn Groos led the struggling Hawks offense with nine points. Coming off arguably their best game of the season, CEHS was only able to shoot 23% (11-48).

The loss puts the Hawks record at 2-9, while the win keeps the Lady Redmens’ perfect season alive at 9-0.

Dell Rapids St. Mary 51

The Colman-Egan Hawks fell to St. Mary Thursday night in the second round of the DVC tournament in Elkton. The loss placed the Hawks into the seventh place game against Lake Preston on Saturday, while the win put the Cardinals in the fifth place game against Arlington.
