Hancock defeated Brandon-Evansville 65-44 in a Little Eight Conference girls’ basketball contest on Thursday night.  The Owls led 38-21 at the half.  They were led by Kaitlyn Rohloff with 25 points.  Kaitlyn Staples hit four 3’s on the way to 17 points and Brooke VerSteeg scored 15.

Sydney Schaeffer scored a team high 13 points for the Chargers.  EmmaLee Brethorst and Mia Elmer added 8 points each, while Haddy Baune chipped in with 6.

“The girls started off strong,” said Brandon-Evansville Head Coach Stephen Schreiber. “Down 4 at the 10 minute mark we gave up a 12-0 run over the next two and a half minutes. Played them pretty much even the rest of the game. I really appreciate these girls and how hard they play for me even when things aren't going perfect. They do a great job of listening to me at halftime and really try hard to make adjustments. I've loved watching them all grow through the year!” 

Hancock (19-3, 15-1 LEC) will host Buffalo Lake-Hector at 1:00pm Saturday and will play at West Central Area on Monday night.

Brandon-Evansville (7-15, 5-11 LEC) has a road game against Kerkhoven-Murdock-Sunburg on Monday and a home game against Bertha-Hewitt on Tuesday.
