Cowgirls solidify third place in league

A 10-4 mark in the league is something to hang your had on, especially for an extremely young team. 

With only one senior on their roster, the Cowgirls of North Lake have been taking the Mountain Valley League by storm. 

Led by another strong weekend performance by Briana Church and Jessica House, the Cowgirls got off to a hot start on Friday, Feb. 1 against Central Christian. 

Dominating the game from the get-go, North Lake took a 16-0 lead into the second quarter and continued their dominance throughout the game. With an additional six points in the second, a 22-2 lead was taken into halftime. 

The Cowgirls never looked back and capitalized on 34.4 percent shooting and 75 percent from the charity stripe. Church led the way with 17 points, followed by House with 12, Andrea Roth with 10 and Harmonie Haff with seven.

North Lake nabbed 23 total rebounds, besting Central’s total of 19 and successfully created multiple offensive opportunities with 15 offensive rebounds. 

A dominating performance gave North Lake the 50-19 win and some confidence headed into a match up with Prospect on Saturday, Feb. 2. 

And the confidence kept rolling.

North Lake took to the court with another strong performance in the first half, dominating the scoreboard and taking a 30-6 lead into halftime. 

Again leading the way for the Cowgirls was the duo of House and Church who combined for 31 of the 49 points scored, dropping 17 and 14 respectively. Roth and Judah Koehler also chipped in seven points each and Haff rounded out the rest of the scoring with four of her own. 

North Lake walked away with another win in dominating fashion, 49-18, keeping both games under 20 points total for the opposing team. 

The girls will wrap up their season this weekend with a faceoff against second place Rougue Valley Adventist Academy and league opponent Chiloquin.
